    I fabricated a hydraulic scissor lift table for my rebar bender (weighs about 300 lb):

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    My first post in this thread. A new welding and fabrication table. I've been welding on a 1/8" thick piece of sheet screwed down to a 2" thick wooden top, and I've caught the thing on fire a few times in the last few years, so it was time to get away from the multipurpose bench, and build a proper dedicated welding/fabrication table. I do a fair amount of welding and job shop type repairs for my own business, repairing and building my own equipment.

    I started the tedious process of drilling the 3/4" top with grid of 5/8" holes to accept the hold down clamps and fixturing tools I purchased. I made a jig on the mill to keep the holes aligned acrossed the table as I go.

    looks like you are using a filtered breathing apparatus that connects to your welding hood. Is the metal you are welding very toxic if you breath in the fumes while welding it?

    made me laugh

    It's just standard stainless steel, but for some reason, welding for hours on end gives me a tickley throat and feel a bit crap, so I invested in my health with the powered air hood.

    I'd sure like to know more about the process. My experience with manifold repairs is the shape change inevitably causes stress & new cracks.

    I used 3/16 mild steel plate for the patch. Preheated. Used Mig to tack in place. Stick welded with Ni Rod. Peened with hammer and buried it in kitty litter. Im no expert so Im hoping it will be okay.

    haha, no I bought the airfed setup around a year ago. I don't bother with it unless I know I'm welding for hours on end, or if I'm welding galv.

    No no Vaughn ! I cant take credit for that. I bought the shelving used 25 years ago and they were labeled by the previous owners.

    Looks impressive but truth be told everything is in the M section for miscellaneous.

    Built folding handles for my recteq 340 pellet grill. I got tired of stubbing my toes on the leg while pulling it across grass and it's near impossible to push it across grass.

    Always good work ^ ^ ^

    This - is a clinical not critical - question . . .

    Why dip when welding steel - vs - running stringers.
    I understand the necessity with Aluminum . . .

    I ran stick and wire professionally for fifteen years, before
    'self taught' TIG - so I'm stringer trained, it comes easy.

    I consider dipping akin to MIG like TIG, and generally not
    necessary . . .

    I do: non-spec. welding on Steel, SS, and Bronze for looks,
    and dipping seems extraneous labor -

    What am I technically missing - by not dipping . . . ?

    I don't know, I dab with aluminum, figure each pulse of melting filler has an equal & opposite reaction. When it melts filler it freezes the last dime. Brings the temperature down where it gains strength.

    Other metal may or may not be dabbed.
