    Looks good - I might have to pick some up. You might have already tried this, but the guide rails make a great place to hang your grinders while you are working.

    No I didn't know that thank you for the tip! I actually had planned on making my own welding table for the longest time but I recently realized that I just don't have time for personal projects right now and when ahead and bought this to save on time. Eventually I will fabricate a huge welding table but for now all I need is a small welding table for Tig jobs

    Re: Hf welding table and drill press clamps

    I have been dragging my table out of the garage almost daily working on my saw stand-it is hard to beat the portability of those little units. I find I can set the grinder on the rails while it is still winding down and not have to wait till it quits spinning (or have it take off across the table top)

    Re: Hf welding table and drill press clamps

    Just got the table myself. Can't really compare it to anything else since i just started getting into welding, but for the price it great. @MetalHeadJason where did you get those drill press clamps? Genius @jrporter now I don't have to fab something up.

    The Harbor Freight clamps are only 8.99 (without coupon) but the warranty is only good for 90 days vs 2 years for the Home depot ones. I'd just go for the cheaper ones (probably made in the same factory) and just make sure they work before you leave the store. I bought some of their welding clamps and had to pick through a few to find jaws that aligned well.

    I've always found that the sale prices were cheaper than the 20% off of full "regular price" (ha, ha, ha!) items. But as N2 pointed out, you can use BOTH coupons at the same time so you can still get a free (flash light, meter, screw driver set) with every purchase.

    keep your eyes open at garage/estate sales for original type vise grips/tools in general on the cheep. if i have to go through a bunch of tools to make sure their in operating condition before i pay then i'm in the wrong place. quality tools pay for themselves.

    Seriously? Maybe they ship all the wonky ones to Washington
    I picked mine up during one of the tent sales for around $3.99 and they had a whole box of them. Some of the pads were off set close to half their width, at least the first few I picked up. Didn't take long to find good ones and the fact they were a few "seconds" in the lot might have had something to do with the sale price.
    I wasn't trying to bash HF and buy from them often, but I found it pays to check the quality as much as possible before you leave the store to save yourself some time.
