Well they say a person has to start somewhere. I decided to build me a stand for my 10" drill press. It is not quite finished yet but I wanted to share it here.
I used some free scrap metal that I had laying around. It will have two swivel castors in the front and 2 small wheels on a welded axle in the rear.
I am going to cut out a section in the front for a handle.
The electrode I used was 1/8" 6013 and my machine set @ 80 amps. I ended up blowing through in some spots at the edge of the tubing.
I have included a picture of two welds = 1 weld is horrible and the other is acceptable. Not sure what I did wrong so maybe you can help.
Please, let me have it = Any suggestions/comments are needed. Thanks
