Building a Weld Table

work table

 

table 1

 

Size is 24" x 48" by 34" tall (before casters) kind of around a larger Snap-on box. A bit on the high side for my old tall (and heavy) made in China vise.

Goobered-up the welds, never welded 1/8" tube before. Put .030 wire in the machine and cranked it up so I think they are strong - just not very pretty (more grinding). Hard to judge penetration on that dark square tubing with no experience. Probably weld a 1/4" steel top/shelf and attach whatever material, removable tops to that. Still need to weld caster plates to the bottom.

Never mind the photo perspective, top/sides seem square within an 1/8".

It rolls - ready for a top and shelf. 

That red Rustoleum is not exactly powder coat but hey it's just a work bench after all.

top mount

 

Disposable maple plywood top and shelf in place - maybe brush on some linseed oil so the dirt and grease don't soak in as much. Good for now, I'll make some accessories as I go along. Back to the 40!
