Diamond Plate Weight
This is a bit of a random question but I thought some of the pros here might know... http://www.turnersteelcoinc.com/html/plates.html ... what makes diamond plate heavier than smooth steel plate? Is it really just the weight of the diamond pattern on top of the same thickness plate or is it something about the materials typically used? Just bought a chunk of 1/2 in diamond plate scrap for the top of my welding table and it came in about 20 lbs heavier than I was expecting for the size (3'x4').
