    I don’t have a fancy one like the above ones. The one I have at home is just a piece of 1/2″ thick on angle iron legs that I have set up outside in the weather. Now, what I use at work is another matter. The top is 3″ steel plate set on top of 6″ pipe legs.

    It doesn’t have to be fancy to do the job . Today guys were working on a bridge . Had some cut offs , 16″
    I beam , weighs 84 lb per foot . They gave me 2 – 4′ pieces . this should make a good anvil an welding table . I just finished unloading , sure would be hot welding today .

    I just bought an old beaver table saw for $60 because i needed the motor. I stripped off the extensions and had it sitting in my shop…..next to my welder, didn’t take long to put two and two together, instant welding table! Cleaned up the top and it actually works pretty good!

    A narrow table can be handy , i can also shove these 2 beams an get 4’x32″ surface .

    Just in case your driving by a construction site an see some cut offs .
    See if they will take scrap price . Most time their hauling it off anyway .

    Here’s a simple new addition to my welding table . I also use my table for cutting granite with a track saw . Problem I had was moving granite around after loading it on table with my tractor . Poor photos but I drilled a 1/2″ hole in center of table . Next welded a 5″ x 1/4 ” plate on 1/2″ all thread . Welded a nut on a small bottle jack . NOw I can spin granite around to a new cutting position on top og 1/2″ in sulation . Hole in table can also be used to secure thing etc.

    Gerald,
    Great ingenuity there with the bottle jack and using the styro sheets for a bit of fall protection for your granite.

    what track saw do you use with what blade to cut granite? I didn’t think the tracksaws could handle that.

    The saw I used is a blue ripper jr. the blade is just a 7/14 ” continious rim for smooth cuts .

    That Blue ripper is a nice system – setup. I’ve seen it used a lot over here.

    Nice bench , I need to make my power tools easily accessable
    Grate was a little goofy as I had to pound it in with a sledge hammer (why the bars are bent) but I think it will be nice. The shoot with drawer actually catches stuff.
