    I've needed a decent welding table/workbench for some time. I've always managed the best I could with what I had but this is going to make work much easier and more accurate too. I've not seen anyone fill the gaps in on a welding table before but it made sense to me as I'll probably be using this as a general workbench 75% of the time.
    A big thanks to Jason from Fireball Tools for his tips, which were extremely helpful! You can view his video here www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PQLb...
    I bought the steel from steel-mart.com
    As always I'm happy to answer any questions.

    It's the attention to detail that makes these builds and videos so amazing! Going back and putting extra tape on each bar rather than fudging it. Keeping the sides square, grinding the weld/installing screws replacing with rubber stops so the spacers sit exactly right. Not to mention thinking about the fact the rubber should go on the bar not the table. Then removing the mill scale, waxing it etc ... Amazing!

    That table is a thing of beauty. I don't even weld and I was still drooling over it. Fantastic design and work!

      @Pask Makes I love centimeter of this thing. It's a work of beauty that I would be proud to have in my house. Not sure at all if thinner steel would improve upon that :)

    First off, great video. As a helpful idea. When your tacking any square together try just tacking the inner edges together first. This method in conjunction with your gaps between your pieces will allow you to measure, squeeze, and pull the cross ends together and apart to make everything nice and square. Then when you tack the outer edges it will lock everything into place. That's how we trued up the ladder skids I built for a pump company. You can pull your measurement cross ways then use a ratchet strap for big stuff or push it on end against a wall until both measurements are the same then tack the outside and check for twist like you did. Hope that helps.

    brilliant mate! from inception to design, to execution, absolutely brilliant! its more than heartening to see a craftsman find and implement a solution to a problem, small or large, instead of "making do". so many just let it go half-arsed and live with it, using the initial flaws as excuses for substandard results.

    Nice job, the slats are a great idea. I couldn't find any decent sized triangles like the Fireball tools ones when I was building the framework for my solar panels, so I made my own out of 30mm angle iron, spent a bit of time to make sure they were accurate, I am still using the four of them three years on and now not looking to buy any. The Fireball ones are much better looking though.

    Fantastic build, I've looked at a variety of welding table on VNclip and this in my opinion is by far one of the best designs....just one question and I don't know whether it was asked in the comments already but what's the dimensions of the table

    You have definitely have given me a lot to think about when I will be ready to build a bench. I especially love the removable thin bars that you put in between the plates and your stops that are movable around the outside of the bench.

  • Jason R
    Jason R 2 năm trước

    I like the design Neil looks like it'll work well for what you do. Did you consider bolting the slats or some of the slats to the frame at all to make the bench a little more flexible? I'd be interested to see what the steel cost you to build the project. I hadn't seen those casters before either, they look way useful, where did you purchase them from?

  • Mr Johnny Drinkard
    Mr Johnny Drinkard 2 năm trước

    Thanks for sharing...honestly after trying many different designs and styles , I found the best is still the solid plate. Holes slits may look cool , but the plate you just weld your jigs right down , and you can use that space underneath with no or much less over all clean up. From slag and spatter you won't have that space for storage. Over time you'll see that ,that little time you save clamping ,you'll spend cleaning in cracks. Blowing out the junk just puts it in another hard to reach spot. My opinion stick to the biggest piece of solid steel possible.

  • Dan Rozwood

    Being in a similar wet environment, I would love to know how the wax on the table top works out. How often you have to reapply it, effectivness, level of effort, would you do it again, etc. Great build!

    • Gottenhimfella

    Mate, I'm probably biased because I've just bought a new welder but my favorite videos of yours are the metalworking ones. I'd love it if you kept adding to the inventory of metal fab and iron working. Loved the forge and this one. The anvil stand was tops. So, at least this guy from Oklahoma USA loves watching an Aussie with similar interests down in OZ. Thanks for making these. I know they aren't easy and you do a good job.

  • Billybob09871
    Billybob09871 2 năm trước

    That thing looks amazing, and hefty. Have you weighed it by any chance? Those edges look ideal for some kind of clamp-on metal bending jig, maybe a piece of angle iron with a hinge either end that could be clamped to the table, and a second angle iron to clamp the work down.

    I have to admit, I watched all the way through and wondered why you were doing the slats, when it would be easier to just weld a big bit of plate on the top, then you showed the clamp part and I literally said out loud "i'm an idiot" - excellent work as ever :D

    • J DeWitt

      Another method people use is a solid top with holes drilled and special clamps for the holes. But with the slat method, there's no holes until you remove the slats.
