    Good idea. Use a 1/4” transfer punch.

    Oh no. That'd be far too easy and sensible. Can't have that!

By the time you lay out and accurately drill holes on an 8 foot guide bar you may as well just layout on the table itself.
    The thickness of the plate is your drill guide. With an annular cutter in your mag-drill, there's nowhere for it to go except where you want it. You're table's 4x8, so you only need a guide bar that's 4' long. Depending on your spacing, that's no great number of holes.

    Here's a vid that shows the guide bar in action on a big table.....

    That seems like a like of drilling... kind of boring if you pardon the pun.... my plan is to use the guide bar to clamp to, and avoid drilling all the holes.

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    I got tired of moving a small (2x2’) 3/4” plate I had around and decided to make a small welding table.

    I’ll just post pics as I go along. No plans as usual. Just winging it.

    Got a bit of a start on it yesterday. Cleaned up a section of heavy wall 6” pipe for the pedestal..



    Cleaned up the plate, radiused two corners with the oxy-acetylene and dressed them best I could on the 12” disc grinder. Heavy sucker.

    Here it is upside down on the welding table ..



    Tacked up square (hopefully)

    Dam... you're ahead of me again. The sewer grate thread a while back had me looking at the cast grids that came out from under the sow crates when I dismantled the raised flooring. My oldest grandson is getting into welding at school and is starting to do his own projects at home. We might have to make 2. I know for small projects I really liked clamping things to my post anvil... a little higher than most tables ( I think it's around 39 or 40") and the ability to walk around it as you work is nice for small items. Even with your fancy new table, I think you'll find that a very handy size.

    There is always a need for a small table for exactly the reasons you mentioned. I have had so much use out of the one I built when I was 15. LOL




    I am using this cast iron wheel for the base. Cockshutt Plow Brampton Ontario. I assume it’s a seed packer wheel or?

    I just tapped the holes to accept 5/8” NC bolts and drilled matching holes in a spare sprocket.

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    That is an odd one. Most of the early Cockshutt grain drills I am familiar with would have used double disc or hoe openers with no packing wheels. Most packing wheels on earlier hoe drills tended to be lighter construction, round spokes with a flat face. That pointed face would be better suited to something directional, but at 24" it's too small for the front wheel of a tractor. I'm thinking something like a harrow cart? Or maybe a front set of wheels on something pulled by horses?

    Hmmm.

    Thought for certain you would know. A friend had it in his stash and gave it to me when he moved. He wasn't sure of if its use and me being a "row crop" guy didn't have a clue.

    Its configuration is similar to packer wheels on our Brillion equipment but way bigger diameter.

    LOL... I'm old, but I'm not THAT old! Horse drawn stuff is a little before my time. I know I pulled some similar wheels off an old piece of my Grandfather's equipment, but I'm not certain what that looked like in it's entirety either. I think it was similar to the photo above but I'm not sure if the dolly was on the front of a plow or a disc. I'll try posting your pic on a farmer's site and see if anyone recognizes it.

    Are you hooking up a drive motor to that sprocket to have a rotary table?

    I thought about it but ideally the top should be round and it seemed like too much work

    Yep! My "welding table" consists of my Ultra Jig from Yesteryear Forge clamped in the bench vise. Only 12x12, but I don't do much of any large pieces and it's really nice to be able to get all the way around the piece.

    I've been thinking about getting one of those drill press tables from Fireball Tool to use as a welding table in the vise. Lots of holes for clamps and a little more surface area than the Ultra Jig, but not much more weight since it's got so many holes through it!

    I rolled up a tool hanger today. I'll have another look at it in the morning to see if I like it or not.

    Thanks Shootr. The “spokes” bug me. They would look better if the were all aligned to the center of the column but then the load bearing area looked too small.

    I’m not sure what you mean by “load bearing area”. I agree that the spokes look a bit off. What about just a single spoke in the middle and then the curved holder just cantilevers on both sides?

    That’s a thought....maybe I’ll try making the single middle spoke more substantial and see how it looks
