Welding table and cylinders
With regard as to whether or not the cylinders need to be upright, I think that is only true with acetylene. It may be recommended that others be upright, but from my experience over the last 6 years with this set-up, I don't see why.
This table is in use 5-6 days a week and I have not had any problem with the regulators. They sit back far enough that they are not exposed to anything that might be dropped or swung. I do have to be careful, though, to keep the lenses pointed down when I am welding - otherwise they get slag pits.
I now have 3 bottles - argon, 75/25, and tri-mix. I have a Y connector on the back of the machine that lets me switch gases without having to disconnect and re-connect every time I switch processes.
Not every table is right for everyone, but this one has worked very well for my small business.
Thanks for looking, and thanks for the comments.
