    Default My welding corner

    After years of welding here and there with minimal organization I decided to build a new shop and a welding corner. Well, I have made progress on the shop including adding additional wiring, installing an exhaust fan and building a welding bench.

    I installed a 3/4 HP Dayton tubeaxial fan above the bench. I hooked it up with a 3-phase motor and a variable speed drive. I cushioned the mounting and added a hood and a shutter system.

    The welding bench is set up on 4 large casters that I had around. It is a 4 x 6 x 1/4"tube frame in the shape of an H. Vertical framing uses 2 1/2" x 3" x 1/8" tubing that I had around the shop. The shelf is 1/8" plate steel and the top is 3/8" plate steel. The projection on the left is removable.

    I have not set up the right side yet as I haven't figured out whether to do a vise or grinder station.

    Anyway, thanks for all the tips and advice on building my project. I still have a lot to do on the adding torch holders, clamp holders and accessories. I might decide to add some cabinet doors as well. I am also working on some crank down feet to stabilize the unit. It rolls too easily on the big casters.

    Default Very nice

    A unique design that looks effective. So, you mean you can remove the surface and support for the L extension... but I'm guessing that the caster remains, on an extended leg as on the right? Yeah, I'd keep a vice or grinder in place on that right side, or you be trippin'.

    SWEEEEEEET!!! I like the ventilation. I think the anvil is the perfect hight! you don't wan't it to be to high, makes it easier to swing down low.

    Hey good job there. Nice ,bright & well laid out. Table looks tough as well too. Keep us posted with some of your projects. And don't forget we like pics. Enjoy your shop.

    Default Some Corrections

    You are right about the surface not being attached. I figure that it would work well for a variety of inserts. I was going to do one for a cutting table with a drawer but think now I will limit it to some jigs and a firebrick insert.

    I think now that I am going to bolt on most of my accessories to give me some more flexibility.

    The anvil is just sitting there now. I will probably put it on a wood base. I was going to put a pedestal on it for the anvil and other attachments but figured the project had gone long enough and I would work on future attachments as I figured things out.

    The esab is new to me. My last one that I sold with a business was an Airco which I believe was made by Miller. It is going to take a bit of time to really get used to it.
