    Default welding table my father built

    I have been lurking in the shadows for awhile, but i thought i would toss up pictures of the welding table in my shop, that my father built years ago. The base was an old portable basketball hoop form a local college that they were scraping. To move it you use a jack up a jack bottle jack and it presses down on a caster, which is connected to all four by a rod system. To set in place release the bottle jack and it sits flat on the floor. Table is 1/4" plate with space between plates to place c-clamps in the middle of the table. Extension at the end of the table for long metal. Cut off saw is flush with top of table.

    Pretty trick, and the slat design can be replaced as they become damaged or unusable. Slick idea all the way around!!

    I'm working on a small welding table and I like the arms for the chop saw to sit on. I'm going to add those to my table. Thanks for posting!
