    I picked up a nice airbrush at auction once for $5. Auctioneer's assistant held it up and said he thought it was some kind of dental equipment. He didn't know what it was. Worked out well for me.

    Welding table picture thread

    Iíve been doing most of my welding on the floor or using a 2íx2í scrap of 1/4in plate on a black and decker folding table. But itís time for an upgrade! I just brought home a 40Ēx96Ē piece of 1Ē plate. (It was free, but I had to cut it down from an 18ft piece with a Milwaukee cold saw - didnít go super well.) I got to try out the new SSQA on my tractor with a set of forks and was impressed - huge improvement in ease and capacity over the old bucket forks:






    Most of the materials are surplus/leftovers. Hereís the plan:



    I was planning to use some 6in formed angle that I have under the table to stiffen it, but it turns out they arenít super straight. Probably overkill anyway. (If there is such a thing!) This version uses some very straight 2.5x0.5 cold rolled bar I have that seems a little light, but the price is right, itís only a 6ft span and I hope itís enough to help with any potential sag. Thoughts?

    If worried about sag why not build an adjustable truss rod or 2?
    Bolting the top to the table is always less risk of warping than welding it, even with minimal but enough welding.

    My brother has a welding table around that size. His has 3” channel at the top and bottom, but nothing in between. It’s a nice setup.

    3in channel running right under the plate, where I drew the 0.5x2.5 bar? And at the bottom, where my lower shelf is? I debated one shelf vs two. Iíll probably throw scraps/cutoffs on the lower one and clamps/grinders(?) on the upper. But I debated only doing one. I have a 5ft wide piece of flattened expanded that is big enough for two so that was the deciding factor so far. I think I have some 3in channel leftover from trailer ramps so Iíll think about that under the top instead of the bar - might be a little stiffer.

    Thanks for all the suggestions so farÖ

    I have a 3/4" by 48x96 table. There is no sag in it. The only reason it is not straight is the previous owners were beating on it. I have about the same spacing for legs you have except for the diagonals you see in the pic attached The legs on mine are made from 2x4 channel doubled up.

    In my opinion, a 1" top is not going to sag by itself with just the four legs in that span. But that also depends upon what you are placing upon it. Heavy machinery, sure. Typical shop welding you see on here, I doubt it.

    Agreed. I've put over 2000 pounds (on a pallet so under 16 sq ft footprint )on a 3/4" 8'x4' table with NO bracing.

    1" would be a non issue.

    Thatís good to know. I wonít sweat it until a problem arises. Nothing on my little kubota is heavy enough for the table to even notice and I canít afford to build anything that would weigh enough to be a problem!

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    I was thinking along the same lines... one inch material is pretty strong so basically anything under it for support in the center should make it bullet proof. I have mixed feelings about the dual shelves. I have 2 under one side of mine, and they both get used, but it makes it more awkward to get things in and out. You're going to be getting down on your knees for that bottom shelf, so your age may help determine how often you want to be down there. If I was going to do it again, it might just be a single shelf slightly below knee height.

    As Lis has said 1" will be a non issue. When this 3" slab was well over 3500lbs it has been in the center of this table with out an issue. Plus another 500 - 1000lbs of crap along with the plate. Granted it uses wore out 1" curved screens as legs.

    One advantage to not having shelves under the table is welder storage.
    I roll my Miller 252 under the table when not in use.

    Now that is a bitchin' piece of art! Probably need a wall like the containment vessel of a nuclear power plant to hang it on, but those things need a little sprucing up anyways.

    Coincidently right now it is almost shaped like the state of South Carolina. But man that hunk still weighs well over a ton. lol

    This welding table is off to its new home today. A fence and gate building business purchased it.

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    So if I buy the rough ones off my Craig's list for a grand, can I still turn a healthy profit on the resale with improvements?? We were talking about the potential for that style sagging in the center... it seems to me tying the legs together close to the bottom would add strength as well and wouldn't require as much steel as a built frame.

    As well as creating a shelf support.

    And yeah I picked up about $1400 after allowing for a few improvements and trucking.

    Welding table picture thread

    I bought this last night for a new welding table build. Itís quite a distance away so I will need to get it shipped to my friends warehouse in Vancouver and worry about getting it home later.

    It weighs about 800 pounds and is in a residential area with no forklifts around.

    Pics:




    Fully raised height 45Ē



    9Ē lowered





    110V hydraulic power pack






    36Ē x 48Ē table top. 4000# capacity

    I will probably make removable work surfaces including a 48Ēx60Ē welding table top (or?)

    Just more stuff to think about..

    Looks like a well built unit... think you'll need something to keep the sparks/grinding dust away from the hydraulic rods/seals?
