    ArcFlat Welding Table

    I bought one. Liked it so much, I bought another. https://www.langmuirsystems.com/arcflat





    Sure beats my self-made uneven table. The clamps and etc from Strong Hand tools make assembly so much quicker.







    Together the tables weigh about 320 pounds. Added casters and can roll it around with one hand. Very happy with this.

    Langmuir is local to me - saved $200 on shipping.

    Was in a hurry to set the first table up and use it, so I bought the leg set. I needed to shorten the legs and add casters to match the table height of other benches/tables in the garage. The legs are 3" square tube. When I cut them down, the wall thickness was was only 7 mm and the inside of 3 of the legs were rusted. They do seem to support the weight, however I would make them myself if I was to do it again.

    With the first table I bought, the holes were too small on the top. Not wanting to exchange it, I drilled them out to 5/8". Probably not the most elegant solution as opposed to reaming them (no reamer), but the clamps and etc seem to work fine as they operate on a bind system. The holes on the sides of the table are sloppy at around .041" in diameter plus or minus. The second tables holes in the top are fine. The holes in the sides are the same as the first table. Am not sure if the holes in the sides will present a problem. So far, haven't needed to use them.

    I purchased their special bolt kit to join the tables together. I carefully followed their instructions and double checked the setup before injecting the fast set epoxy and clamping the bolts down. Where the tables join, they aren't totally horizontal about the last 9" of the seam. Shee... It's very slight - maybe 1/32" at most and not really a problem to me so far (I put that part of the table to the back). A chunk of aluminum bar stock 1 x 2 x30" set across the tables show the joined tops as flat. Am not sure if I messed up in assembly, but think it's a machining issue. One table edge "slopes" off starting about 3" from it - about the width of the machining bit.

    Re: ArcFlat Welding Table

    I need to correct a few items in the original post since I can no longer edit it: The wall thickness of the square tubes was .070" not 7 mm. The holes in the sides (random sampling) range from .0629 to .0641" in diameter - not .041" diameter.

    Re: ArcFlat Welding Table

    I am thinking of buying an arcflat table. but i need to be able to roll it around in my garage. has anyone added casters to this table? if so, can you tell us how you did it? i am not sure if i should use casters with a post (threaded) or if i should weld on plates so i can bolt on the casters. any suggestions? recommendations on casters? can you provide some pics of your caster installations?

    it seems to me the table is priced reasonably and fixturing should help with my weld projects. any feedback is appreciated.

    I used these: https://www.amazon.com/tonchean-Leve...167176&sr=8-16

    They work very well. Can easily roll the table (on cement) with one hand. Gotta keep the floor clean - they don't like welding bb's etc.

    robert-r, thanks for the feedback. i ordered a single table 24 x 36 and the legs. once i get it i will give more thought to what kind of casters i want to use on it. your choice is interesting.

    did you give thought to step down casters? step on them to raise the table on wheels and lift them to set the table back on the floor.
