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?

Thx Jeff, yes my design. Some "engineering-on-the-fly" and hand bending the wire.
I really hate the ones one can by where you need to tilt and twist to release it. Almost like one of those metal puzzles :mrgreen:

I am taking my time and looking for a small lathe to play with. I don't know alot about them and haven't used one since Highschool but more and more I am finding the need to make small parts.

:lol: What I lack in ability, I make up for in tools. I need a lathe like I need a hole in the head but I will still get one and then sit and look at it 6 months later and wonder why I bought it...Can welding fumes cause that? :lol:

I need a lathe for dozens of reasons.


* Spare knurled footpegs for rearsets

* Spare connecting rods (shift, brake) for rearsets

* Wheel spacers

* Swingarm spacers

* Disc spacers

* Frame bungs...I could go on.


...I could go on. The fact is, virtually nothing I need to make on a lathe would be very technically challenging or complex, yet all are items which, if I had to approach a local machine shop to create then, would cost me proper money.

Time to get a cheapie Siegl or similar.
