So i made myself a welding table the other day, and had some time to kill today so i made a few upgrades to it. Added a hanger for the chipping hammer, and a rack to hold my grinders. Also added the remote ground tab.











Now that the table is organized, maybe I should so the rest of the garage.







Real problem is I don't have any place to put most of it. I might have to many toys. Wink Wink

I know, they came from my mom's house when she sold it. She wanted me to try and sell them. One is a 15pt the other is a 10.

I like the table very nice work. Very Happy You need some casters so you can roll it around.

Thought about that, but the garage floor is not real flat, I have to shim one leg.

If you put a turnbuckle on one end you could adjust the height. Like a third member on a three point hitch. Just a thought.

You can always do something like this.



I did this for my drill press stand. Just go to HD and find some nice big nuts and bolts and then weld the bolt to the frame and you then have adjustable feet to stop rocking for less than 5 bucks. I added a second nut so I could lock the bolt in place so it would not turn in or out from virations.

just relooked at your table and it was a tripod Laughing all you have to do to fix the shim problem is weld a 1/2 inch rod coupling to each side of your rectangle tube and put a capscrew thru it and snug it to the ground and when you move it just adjust accordingly .....we weld a rod coupling to all our pipe stands for fine tuning pipe layout hope this helps
