    I saved your picture to my ipad and used my image rotation tool and if on my pc I would have saved it on the pc, opened it up with ms paint and used the rotation tool as well. Then save the image after it’s rotated.

    That's a beauty camfab! Bet that puts a nice dent in the ol' coinpurse, but if you think about it your fab/work table is often the most used tool in your entire workshop. Now comes the joy of the first grinder gouge in that beautiful top! ouch, I can feel it from here

    Resaving them won't help if the program you're using keeps the orientation bit intact.... I use a program called irfanview, it's small been around forever... and free it has an option to disable the orientation data in the file header and it's has lots of other features!!! there are other programs some of the guys on here use that work as well.

    Your right, the fully gridded and dead flat table is like a whole new world. The funny thing is that while not cheap, this table is not that much more than the Stronghand Chineseium. Where they bend you over is the tooling, none of which I own yet. Waiting to see how deep Uncle Sam is going to reach into my savings account before I get any tooling ��. Ya, let’s not talk about grinders....

    Thank you, makes sense.

    I chopped the end off Strong Hand sliding clamps and welded a 5/8” bolt for the 5/8” holes in my table.

    Scored another cast-iron table, almost directly matches my acorn table. It has been ground in the past, not sure how they did it, The grind is parallel lines straight across, side to side. It is super flat .
    Will need just a little shimming to get it level with the acorn top, but I’m just happy it fit perfectly in my space.
    Now have 14 x 3 cast-iron top

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    For those of you that built a table with a top made of flat bars or slats if you will...

    What kind of spacing between the bars would you use if you were to build it again?

    My idea is a 50" wide table made with 3/4 or 5/8 x ~6" slats placed maybe 2" apart to allow room for all the different clamps I may use...

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    My new welding table. Height adjustable, easy to level and easy to take apart.
    I stole this idea from somebody on a forum. Don't remember if it was this forum or another, might have been the Miller forum.
    4 pipestands and some C-channel. When you clamp the outer C-channels together the two bottom C-channels centre themselves in the V on the pipestands.
    When the 4 outer channels are clamped it's solid as a rock. 4 more pieces of C-channel on top which i can put wherever i need them.

    I have a nice garage, but it's only 19' x 19'. I've had a small foldable Nomad table for a couple of years which is nice for the small stuff, but I needed a bigger table which was easy to dismantle when I need space in the garage to work on my cars or motorbike.
    I got a shipment of steel today so the bandsaw has been doing it's thing for most of the afternoon and I put up the table at the back of the house for a test because there is not room enough in the garage right now.
    The steel flat bar that's on the table in the picture is gonna be a plasmacutting tabletop which I can put on when needed. Slats will be removable to keep the weight down.
    I was also thinking of drilling holes in the ends of the 4 pieces of C-channel so I can drop in pins to make sure they cannot slide of and drop on my feet.
    Size of the table 2m x 1m (6.6' x 3.3') plasma tabletop 1m x 1m (3.3' x 3.3').

    Made the plasmacutting tabletop today. It's the same height as the C-channel.
    I'm quite happy with the table like this. I'm 6' 3" an being able to raise the table a lot is a good thing for my worn out back. I like to do my welding standing up and the pipestands make it possible to get the top at the perfect height for that. If I have something I want to sit down for I can drop it down.
    After I finished the plasmatable it took me less than 10min to dismantle and store in a corner of the garage. And that was including knocking the BB's of first.
