    Electrical outlets. Hangers for clamps. Tray for marking tools
    It is 4 foot deep so there is plenty of room in the back. I will place a grinder and drill press there and will need that outlet you suggested.
    How many holes do I need for clamping. Some tables have more holes than table. I can’t imagine someone would need that many clamp options and drilling all those holes would tire me out.
    I do need clamp hangers.
    For trays, I can place them under the top frame.
    I like all your suggestions.

    Princess Auto in Canada ( on sale but I think they may have discontinued them). HF May have them. Also seen them on line but pretty spendy.

    Re: Welding table

    Put everything on towing bar (2x2) tube, and weld towing hitch receivers under your table. If you don't have access to towing receiver tube (is expensive here and has no weld seam, or the seam is in the corner, usually 2.5X1/4 tube) you can grind a notch in the "tow bar" to clear the weld seam. Use stop bolts (weld on a nut) to keep reciever and "tow bar" tight. You can put things like vises (that you want at the same height as the table) on risers. People have also used the receiver tubes to hold table extensions when they need them, so use your imagination. SO handy - especially for a small space. A vise on a small table will end up getting in the way often. I also have a portable band saw mounted on a tow bar tube. cheers!

    Two inch receiver tube is expensive. Full stick price is cheapest by the foot of course. Outside dimension is 2.5” and I don’t recall the actual wall thickness. The inside seam has been removed by a broaching process I believe. Receiver tube for 1.25 square tube is also available.

    The only way to go.

    You would need one on each corner to level properly though.

    Agreed. If you’re looking for character, these are the type of parts boxes I’m always on the lookout for. No bulging plastic part bins for me.

    Welding table

    I know it has been mentioned, but a holder of sorts for clamps is handy.



    I made this hanger for an angle grinder but I have NEVER used it.



    Mig, plasma cutter or tig torch holders are a must




    I’ve posted this elsewhere before but I made my own clamps to use in my table’s 5/8” holes.

    Pic should be self explanatory.






    Another home made one using a cheap drill press clamp

    Switchable magnetic squares are a must have. These are from Mag Switch.

    Re: Welding table

    I may as well bore ya some more while I’m in the zone

    Fireball Tools makes excellent cast iron and aluminum set up squares. Spendy tho.....

    I came across a pair of cast iron table saw extensions FREE and made my own.








    Okay I’m done for now. Hopefully you may get some ideas to use for your table.

    Re: Welding table

    Those are nice ideas. I could spend years upgrading this table. It will give me something to do and the frame is heavy enough to weld anything I wanted.
