    Nice table, I found out with my bench no matter where you mount the vise, it will always be in the way at one time or another.

    I took notice of the electrical boxes on the bench also, nice thought for a portable bench, my only worry would be making sure the cord is unplugged before you do any welding.

    Yea I sorta pondered that also....not sure I would want that kinda power feeding back into my electric box.(at home) Would be a PITA to unplug it every time I started to weld and then plug back in again

    Dang nice table tho...great work....looks like it would be fine anywhere.

    Maybe someone who really knows their stuff will chime in on the electrical outlet issue.

    My only suggestion would be to put those little plastic deals in the outlets (the ones meant to keep little kids from sticking forks and such in) to keep grindings out - probably not a big deal but I know how my luck is
    Thanks Willy - The outlets are recessed immediately beneath the table about 2 or so inches so that should shield them from grind shaving, but I think I have some of those plastic insert covers around somewhere for good measure. I had thought about weatherproof recepticle covers with the flip covers, but I decided not to bother since I find those flip covers to be clumsy.

    Thanks to everyone for your compliments and suggestions... it's great to have a medium to share.

    Hmmmm... I didn't realize there would be a major problem with the electrical since we have a similar setup on our welding table at work (although it isn't a mobile platform). If someone with some electrical expertise could let me know if I am going to have problems. The electrical is grounded to the outlet boxes, thus grounded to the table and wired with 12/3 wire throughout. Could turning the outlets off with my switch (i.e. disconnecting the "hot") provide me a means of not having to disconnect before welding should it be deemed necessary? Or do I need a complete disconnect, ground and all?

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Hello,
    Glad to have you on board, I am happy to see someone with great questions and great work habits. You have done some nice work, I like to see someone ask questions and take answers with some class.
    I am sure people here will help all they can (myself included if I am able) to answer your questions.
    Again good job, I might suggest locking casters for your table.

    Thank you Tim... I am here to share and hopefully learn something and therefore will certainly take anyone's constructive critism or guidance. I'm sort of a perfectionist so if something isn't right, I want to know how it is supposed to be done. I just hope I can offer something in return to this forum; My expertise is mobile electronics and computers so if something falls under my realm, I'll be sure to chime in and try to help.

    Default Hmmmm

    Nice table , but the tool hangers and 11-R vise grips are a pain in the rear end . I had hangers on my table and found out that it was more convenient to just clamp them on to the rail with the release lever pointing in to the center of the table , they do not get knocked off neither do they fall off if you are pounding on the table JMTC . Other than that it is a real pretty table
    On the outlets on the table , I have smoked one extension cord in my shop when welding and it was not on my welding bench ! My bench has an outlet (GFCI) mounted to it and have not had any problems in 17 years of use . The outlet will trip if I use my 2050 close to it but it works just fine . The cord that smoked carried the full welding amperage from the work piece , through an old 1/4 B&D drill down another cord to a reciprocal saw and back into the ground clamp that had fallen off . Both tools had a three prong grounding plug , I replaced the ground clamp and have never had it happen again . Dan
    Tools to Men are like Shoes to Women you can never have too many .

    Too true. My dad does wood working, so his bench is wood rather than steel, and the solution we came up with was to weld nuts to a 3/16 piece of plate, mount it to the underside of the bench, and just bolt or un-bolt the vise as necessary. It saves fumbling around with nuts, washers and a second wrench, so you're more inclined to move (or use) the vise rather than try to work around it.

    Default Bench vise

    Good looking table. As far as the vise goes i mounted mine on a piece of 1/4 plate that was welded to a piece of 2x2x1/4 tubing which slips into a piece of trailer hitch reciever tubing welded to the bottom of the table. I also welded 3/8 nots to the reciever part so the vise could be held securly with out wiggling.
