    Welding table picture thread

    Ok, I'm getting ready to build a 4x8 table and surfing through the various table builds using the forum search function kinda sucks. I'm guessing there are a lot of guys in the same boat...

    So.... lets have a welding table pic thread! No step by step builds necessary, just show off the final product you have come up with. If you have a build thread somewhere on the forum, post up a link with your pic.

    Lets see whats out there...

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    I'm in the same boat, just not as big. I like the idea of one condensed thread as it seams everyone is starting single threads for the same project with a different twist.
    I have no pics but mine is going to be 3'x4' with a slat top out of 4"x.625" flat bar as my metal supplier has about 20 cutoffs he I'd giving my a deal on as he has little use for the in 3' lengths.

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    this bench has been going strong for 25+ years. it started as a medium duty work table and i added a 2x2 & 4" tubing frame to the top to support a 5/8" plate. used more 2x2 to re-enforce the legs. it's pinned to the floor.

    Here are a couple of pics of the ones we have in the school shop. We put receiver hitches on all of the tables so the tools are moveable.

    still haven't bought the top I want for it. I placed the bottom channels closer together for a chair to tig weld.

    Here is my artistic table with receiver pockets all the way around. And I made a way of moving as you see down below with the wheels.


    And another vise I added to it.

    All these wimpy topped tables.

    Mine's 1 1/2" thick 3' x 12'. I need to attach the receiver on the far end one day. It's certainly solid when you need to work on things in the vise, and a wonderful thing to beat things on.

    This is going to be a great thread. Artistic is Outback forge. And what DSW has, I'd definitely call that a table and vise

    DSW, one thick table and vise. I would move that inside to the kitchen. Too nice to be outside.

    It's a 5X Parker. I've seen bigger. I'd like to get a real nice 6" or 8" post vise so I don't have to beat on this one at all. When my friend and old boss passed away, his wife asked if there was anything from the business I was interested in having. I got 1st dibs since I'd worked for him the longest and was his friend. 1st thing I said was I wanted the vise and the table. When the scrap guy came to haul off a lot of old scrap steel, he was just drooling over the table. He must have asked 5 or 6 times if she wanted to get rid of the table, I guess hoping she'd change her mind or forget. I've had any number of other guys he knew say they want the table as well.

    When we moved the table to that position initially, it was so heavy the 941 track loader could barely lift it without tipping. We ended up piling a lot of solid block on the back of the loader and I was hanging off the ROPs as a counter weight so we could move it from where it was to that spot. Trying to lift it with the backhoe was a joke, All we did was crush the front tires and the table never moved. Getting it inside the shop where we wanted it was on the on the "to do" list, but 1st we needed to get a decent floor poured. We thought about moving it inside while the 988 loader was there, but once we moved it straight in, we wouldn't have been able to turn the machine to get it where we wanted, and getting it back out to pour the floor later would have been a pain.

    It still sits outside up at his old shop. I rent out some space up there for storage. If I ever have to move for some reason, I'm not sure where that table will go other than in the side yard of my house. It's too big and heavy to go in the current garage. Door opening is only 6'6" and the floor has major cracks and is hollow under some areas. I'd have to rebuild the whole garage ( on the "around to" list) to be able to get it inside. It will probably cost me as much to move the table as it would to just build a new one, less the vise.

    Table was originally longer and wider, but someone cut it down at some point. I think when it was originally sold at auction, they cut it down from a bigger table and sold either 2 or 4 tables. I wasn't there when he got it originally.

    "I'd like to get a real nice 6" or 8" post vise"

    I was reading some old posts regarding welding benches and saw your line about post vises. I thought I was the only one that new their value when it comes to saving the new style vises from the untimate death by hammer. Contact me ... I have a few post vises. 8" are hard to find 6 there are a few. I have at least (8) 4" right now.

    DSW- Have you done the calculations to find out what the weight of that monster is?? I was about to say boat anchor, but I think ship would be closer to it's category. The Titanic comes to mind. How'd you get it home???

    Re: Welding table picture thread

    Here's my welding table. It's an old shaft line driven shaper. Solid cast. The table is about 36" square. I need to put a steel top on it and cut off the shaper shaft. What do you think of that vice? Great eh? I'll show a picture of my real vice that I refuse to put outside too. It's a Wilton Cadet. I've built a base for it so it sits on the garage bollard that protects the furnace and H2O heater.

    It's been brought to my attention that I may have offended someone with my "wimpy" table top comment. Sorry I though I'd put the laugh smiley in the original post showing it was all just for fun. I'll add it to my original post.

    To any members who have anxiety issues brought upon by feelings of social inadequacy due to a small or undersized table top, I apologize. They say size doesn't matter. I have heard they have a solution for that now...

    A word of advice. If you wake up at night, look out the window, and a couple guys are carrying that table off ? Put the gun down and go back to bed.

    The red legged one was given to me from Walker. I added a 1/4" top (had an 1/8" originally), put expanded metal under the top for a shelf. Works pretty good.

    With the new move, I lost my 3 car garage. In AZ a person needs to keep the vehicles inside, so no big welding table for me. (No mill or lathe either )

    great pictures and lots of ideas, I'm just using a strongman portable and or a pair of foldable steel trussel benches...for now.

    While this thread is gathering steam If you do a google search for welding table images there's plenty to look at all in one place.
