Welding Table

Hi Guys,

I watch Power Block TV on Saturdays, and on Xtreme 4X4 the host has what looks like a folding, expanded metal welding table. Does anyone know where I could get the same type or at least plans to build one myself.

Thanks, Ed

I would contact the Shows web site and ask them.

Welding Table

Thanks for the quick reply. I've seen the one in Northern Tool, and I'm not sure if it's heavy duty enough.

I took your advice Craig and e-mailed Xtreme's web site, I'm waiting for an answer.

Thanks again, Ed

I made a nice table out of some 2 inch angle and some 1/4 steel.
Expanded metal is nice if you do a lot of cutting so the sparks don't jump all over the top of the table but for welding I like a nice solid surface.

2 foot by 3 foot has been a good work surface for home use. I don't see why you couldn't make it where it will fold down on a wall. Sounds like a good idea when I make my new table. That way it wont turn into a catch all.

Welding Table

That's a great idea Pepi, with the table unfolding from your work bench. I would love to go with that but it wouldn't be practical for me. My work bench is roughly 14' long and all my underneath space is taken up with tool boxes, plasma cutter, and an engine. Maybe someday I'll figure something out.

I need something that I could hang on a wall when not in use. The toolup.com web site that welder4956 suggested is probably the one I need, but at $160.00 plus shipping, I think I'll make it myself, just need a bigger picture.

Thanks for the help, Ed

I store stuff under and below the table. I do not use often like parts .
The space that is holding that engine, dead area for the most part not like your tool area.
When I need access to the area, the table can be lifted up and tilts back , leaning back, over center ..... so it cannot fall .

Welding Table

The engine that's under the bench, it's already in a dead spot. I have two cars in there that I can't move, a 61 Vette and a 69 Chevelle on a body cart. Once the cars can move on their own, I'll be able to consider what you've done. Until then it has to hang on a wall. My floor space is 24x24 which doesn't give me the room for a permanent folding table. I need to place it wherever I can.
Thanks for the suggestions, Ed

I picked up an outside work table a while back. Roughly 5' x 4' 3/8" steel plate table top and 1/4" steel angle frame. It has an axle with steel wheels on one end, and steel wheel casters on the other. Grease fittings on all wheels/casters. Its really heavy but I can roll it around on the slab behind my garage. It will roll out into the yard too, but you better make sure its on solid ground or it WILL sink.

Since this pic was taken, I have added a piece of 1/8 plate steel in the bottom frame to make a bottom shelf.





It does spit sparks when cutting on it, but you cant beat it for welding or for clamping something to it while you beat the snot out of it with a BFH.

Mike
