    @theamcguy, i did use a pneumatic die grinder to fix the hexagon shape. If i use a file it would take forever 🙂

    Some more progress:

    Very nice work, Ivan. Your welding skills are impressive!

    Thanks. Still working with the legs of the welding table. I have never done a design like this, so 50% of the time is thinking and measuring. If i do one mistake i have to do it all over again.

    Your welds are awesome, mine are pretty poor by comparison, I know it comes down to practice, but I am still impressed.

    Thanks guys. I used to work as a industry plumber many years ago, at ship yards and chemistry plants. I fabricated piping of most material at that time. I can do all welding types such as: Stick, Mig, Mag and Tig welding, but tig is my favorite welding metod.

    I finally got my own welding machine a while ago. I can use this for stick and tig welding. I’m very happy i still know how to use it, but i’m not a pro anymore. It takes practice practice practice. I whish i got this setup years ago. It’s very funn to make projects in my home garage.

    The legs are now completly done. I can now adjust the height up or down by turning the nut at the top.

    Here are some pictures:

    Nice work, Ivan. What will be the travel in the legs? What height will the table be?

    That ought to cover all of the adjustment you will ever need. Very nice design.

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys. I really love to work with this projekt.

    Me and my family are going to Thailand tomorrow for 3,5 weeks vacation. I will continue when i get bach.
    I also need some parts for the table. I need star knobs and plastic end caps for square tubing. I think i know where i can find that in Thailand.

    @madman_us, Tig welding needs a lot of practice, but when you get a hand of it you can weld nice welds. I’m not a pro, but i try my best. My best advice is to try to be comfortable when welding, and use a tig finger. Then you don’t burn your fingers. You can also find good tig welding tips on http://www.youtube.com

    Yeah you only get better in something when you keep practice and never hesitate to ask or watch others for improvements.
