Lets see some pics of those welding tables. I like to see what people have done to make their projects easier.

I saw this one ealier, http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f37/w...oject-1451797/...

This one is more of a fab table than a welding table. I got tired of cutting tubing on the floor. The sander swings out of the way for longer pieces. Welded a socket to the clamp so I could open close it with a speed wrench. It works well. I'd like to make a table that with multiple clamping locations.

Here's mine. It's made from a scrapped machine table top of some kind. The top is 1 1/4" thick with bracing underneath and sits on 4" square legs. It weighs close to a ton.

Here is one I built for limited space but still portable. Receiver hitch front and back for securing the table to the wall and the other for vice, 2' sheet metal bender, joint jigger etc.

I like the idea of being able to fastening it to the wall. That'll be added to the list...

Here is a double-duty welding table I built recently. It has a 3' by 6', 1/2" steel top, 4x4x3/16" legs and 2x4x3/16" and 2x3x3/16" rails and supports, all sitting on 6" dual-locking casters. Since I also do a lot of wookworking I needed a bench with a wood surface as well, so I also build a 1.5" maple overlay edged in oak which fits over the steel surface. It is a bit overkill as it weights close to 1000 pounds, but it is definately sturdy.

Is that a jig for frame rail ends you have welded down to it?

No.. it's actually a pair of 2x4 stubs that serve to hold a bumper in place for grinding the ends smooth.. allows me to flip them over easily.

In the upper left corner, you can see a little of my other "fixture".. it's a rotating stand that holds the bumpers while I weld them up. Allows me to easily spin a bumper around 360deg for quick welding.

For "bumper building", I have actual pieces of Jeep frames that I use.. YJ front/rear, TJ front/rear, CJ front rear, JK front/rear, and a XJ front. Picked 'em up over the years...

I build this table. I went with a 4x6 top 1/2 in thick. The plasma chute works great. One modification was that I used a 30 gal steel barrel instead of fabricating square chute.

Its a very stable table.
