    Whats your opinion on this table?

    32" tall
    30"x28" top / 2" thick.

    I don't need another table but for $125 .... I'm awful tempted...

    I'm just wondering if my electric hoist will lift it off the truck....

    How much you figure this thing weights?

    I don't know what it weighs, but that is too good of a table at too good of a price to pass up!

    Re: Whats your opinion on this table?

    The 2 inch top alone is approximately 450 lbs based on 81.6lbs per square foot for 2 inch plate weight. Subtract a little for the holes, and add in another ~200 lbs for the legs? I am guessing it is an easy 600 lbs. Unless you have a specific use in mind, I would probably pass if it were me. There's probably only $50 worth of scrap value in that table. Seems kind of small for a welding table.

    Looks like a good beater table. Mount a vise to it for rough work. I sold one approx that size a month or two ago for $175. A thick table is great for clamping down and beating stuff straight.

    It's eighty lbs per sq foot. Know any girls that bowl ?

    When you snooze you lose. You can always use another table, especially one 2'' thick. Sorry.

    I bought a harbor freight 2 ton engine hoist just to have for situations like this. They have been on sale for $150.00 .

    I have hung a one ton chainfall from a tree to lift stuff.

    Nothing like a thick table for straightening some things. I have one with a 1-1/4" thick plate about 46" sq. Wish it were bigger but I get a lot done on it.

    Agreed. Pretty hard to beat a HEAVY table! Great for anchoring manual benders also.

    Yes.

    Originally wanted to make some kind of usable table.... But turned out to be quite the challenge to get them welded without warping...

    I flame straightened it a bit today... but it's still not right.... It will be a coffee table for the back patio.... I plan to shorten up a bunch of railroad spikes... like the one in the pic... and paint em different colors...

    be a conversation piece.

    Interesting table John. What's the story with the bike in the background. Is it original or a cobbled together thingy-mabob?
    Lincoln, ESAB, Thermal Dynamics, Victor, Miller, Dewalt, Makita, Kalamzoo. Hand tools, power tools, welding and cutting tools.

    The table is actually holding the slab together. It's the latest in no mechanical or chemical attachment fasteners from simpson strong tie. Quick, clean, easy, and gravity does all the work! That table is a BEAST for sure, it looks beautiful and functional - like your other tables, love that post vise. That little table would have been a super handy beater/grinding station, and the holes looked pretty useful. The rail plate table looks useful as a beater table too but imo would be MUCH better served as a little coffee table covered in clear - tons of character in that top, I dig it

    I wouldn't say it's cobbled together but it's definitely a thing-mabob.

    78 shovel / hardtailed original frame/ ZX10 front forks/tank shift ... I need to rewire it.... simplify everything.

    pretty much built it to scare the neighborhood children and embarrass my yuppy neighbor on his big Harley FXZBGfvckU Screaming Eagle dealer approved $30k pile of crap.

    Gets a lot of attention at the watering hole.

    Maybe you can invent some new sort of board game, but instead of a king, Queen, and a bunch of pawns, different colored spikes, traveling around the table finding their appropriate hole for points??

    You know, kind if like when you were young, and in the bar scene?
