    Default My First Welder and First Project

    I just got my Miller 150S this week. Since I needed a welding table I thought it would be a good first project. It’s based on the welding table project on the Lincoln Electric site. The hardest part was welding on the coupling nuts for the casters even after sanding off the zinc plating. Once I got an ugly but serviceable weld I found I had penetrated a bit too much and had to spend about an hour running a tap through and then testing with a bolt over and over before the bolt went all the way through.

    PS: The welding table is supporting a dish of ice cream that my wifeP1010265.jpgP1010266.jpg insisted be in the picture.

    Looks good. Did you use flux core wire on that?

    Thanks, I used 6011 stick. I'm pleased with the result even though for a few bucks more I could've bought a Miller folding table. But, as Jigantor pointed out, I did learn a lot. Some of it, real basic, like getting familiar with a chop saw.

    Not too "familiar" I hope...?

    Looks good! How thick is the top? I tend to go heavy on the top as I am usually beating on something there. Also helps with keeping it flat over time.
