Small portable welding table

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Small portable welding table

Postby AndersK » Mon Nov 07, 2016 5:51 pm

Been fabricating a small fixture table lately.
Plate is 600x500x8 mm.
Have wanted a decent table for long but dont have the space for it so I made this to be somewhat portable.
The rollers will not engage until its folded and tilted a bit.
Made some stronghand type clamps to use with it.
Just the handle to weld on and its completed.

Nice job Anders. That looks like 1/2" plate on the top...how many drill bits did you wear out drilling those holes :lol:
Ooops just read that the top is 8mm..pays to read the wholepost sometimes :oops:

8mm is 5/16, give or take a few thousandths....

Okay, 8mm is .3149" versus .3125" for 5/16... After I said it, I had to do the math. :roll:

Thanks Jeff
Actually the bit is still like new after 50 holes. Used an Alfra Rotabest core bit with plenty cutting fluid.

Roughly 2" between rows and 4" between holes. First hole is offset 2" from previous row

Made a torch holder to fit both a 9- and 26-torch.

My uncle just gave me a smaller roll around metal table with no top on it so I bet you know what I'm thinking now. Man that's a good idea! I really like the table and clamps. Been wanting a fixture table myself so I might give that a try too. Nice work.
