    Welding Tables

    My Cousin called, he is a maintenance mechanic at an industrial print shop. He says we have some "Machine Bases" we are throwing away, nobody wants them because they are to heavy and they have no way to truck or unload them, do you want them? I said what will I do with them? He says they might make good welding tables. If you pick them (3) up and take 1 to my house they are yours, I can load with forklift. I said well, I can take a look at them so here goes.

    They are 3 ft x 6 ft x 3/4 thick. Legs are formed 4x 1/4 I figure them at about 800lbs each. So all in all worth the ride for free.
    Sorry for the sideways pictures but you get the point, tops cleaned up quick with a wire wheel and I waxed them. Moving them is a snap with my pallet jack.

    Very nice table, If the lower stretchers are strong enough, I would weld two tubes across the table for pallet jack forks to slide into and replace the wood shelf with expanded metal.

    Weld a reciever tube to a mounting plate, drill and thread bolt holes in the top to mount the receiver mounting plate, weld a receiver tube directly under the top reciever tube to the bottom of the strecher would be handy also.

    Nice tables and will certainly work for a welding bench. Going to be heavy though if you don't plan to keep it stationary. Mine is 4X12X.750 on heavy casters. I move it around the shop with the skid steer as it's too heavy to move by oneself.

    Re: Welding Tables

    Very nice!

    What plate thickness on those tops?

    Not to Hijack- just have a related question

    Also can someone explain to me about welding table top treatments, like this one mentioned wax, and others mention oiling. I need to dress my top up, get all the Buckshot and arc strikes, and tacks off it, but have been hesitating to take the scale off because of rust.

    Slob you need to buy you some casters.That top is a mere 1900 lbs plus legs and stuff. If its too much I'll come over and build you a lightweight model( 4 x 8 x 1/2) with some extensions and haul yours off

    Re: Welding Tables

    what I really like about them is I can put them side by side for a 6 ft square table, or in an "L" or just one alone depending on what I am doing. Yes they are heavy but a welding table should be. Wax is no mystery, just some cheap car wax to help with surface rust. When I weld on them especially mig, I hit them with some PAM cooking spray so the spatter doesn't stick so well. Yes Cousin came through on this one, but I return the favors. You should have been there the day he called me and said come on down they are throwing all the aluminum away. 4x2 x 1/4 rec tube. 20 footers I don't know how many I got, but I built my flat bed and my sons flatbed and have a lot left. Crazy what some of these places toss.
