    What is a favored height for a welding table? This one measures right at 42.5" from the floor including the casters. Kind of nice to stand at and work, but may be a bit high to repair/weld and fabricate things on?

    Slob,

    I kind of think a shop needs several different height tables. I just held a tape measure up at 42.5" and it felt like a real good height for a stand up and work at table. If I were you I wouldn't be in any great hurry to cut that down.

    Exactly what I was thinking to as far as height. I was thinking the other table, (which I have yet to get to the shop citing room) will be better a bit shorter. I have a comfortable elevated height barstool type chair which would be perfect for working at this bench. The only trouble is that being 3/4" thick it's a bit heavy for light work..... I think I can get by however.....

    Thanks a bunch!

    Slob,

    One table at a comfortable stand up height and one a comfortable sit down and work at height would give you some good versatility to cover a pretty wide range of projects.

    This was my solution for a sit down and tig weld at table when I first set up in this shop. It's a 3' x 5' piece of 5/8" plate. IIRC it's 30.625" high. And I've got a fairly decent adjustable height rolling office chair to sit in while working at it.

    Tore that hoist apart last evening and well worth the cost of shipping to acquire it. The friction clutch facings have worn away from use and the rest of the hoist is very sound, and tight. What should take about 30 ft. pounds of torque to twist I can do with my bare hands holding the two sections together. There are friction discs which are worn much like a motorcycle and readily replaceable.

    Looks like I won't be upside down with this after all.
