Ok... I am to that point where I think I need a welding table or two. What do you guys use? I see that cheap one on Northern Tools website, and it looks ok I suppose, although not very big. I suppose it could be workable if paired with some roller stands or a roller conveyer to work with longer stock.
How about a stainless steel food prep table? I know most have rounded edges, but you can find them pretty big sometimes, and I've bought them in the past for my folks grocery store at auctions pretty cheap. (right place right time).
I've seen a few metal work benches, but almost all of the new ones are wood, and even those few that are metal are pretty thing stamped steel sheet. I can't see welding on that without blowing holes in it eventually.
A local welding shop I looked around at seemed to have 1" steel plate supported on what looks like junk metal left over from other jobs. That is heavy and expensive I bet.
Any other ideas?
I did a bit of work on a plastic table (looks like food prep plastic cutting board material) today, and amazingly I didn't melt the table, but repositioning to not do that certainly cost me some time. It did get me thinking about getting a regular welding table.
I know... just work on the floor. LOL.
How about pouring a concrete table? It would be heavy as all get out, and could not be used as a ground or a heat sink, but it would not melt through either.
