Introduction: How to Make a Low Cost Welding Table

Dimensions
The table top is 147cm x 80 cm with 7x3cm-x2mm rectangle tubing

For the legs I used 6cm x2mm square tubing

Casters is 100mm with wheel locks

The hight is adjustable from 90cm to 105cm

Step 1: Start

Here you need 15 pieces 80cm of 70x30mm rectangle tubing and 2 pieces 147cm of 60x60 mm square tubing and Clamps.

Weld it every 3cm at the middle with spots.

Step 2: Legs

For the legs you need 4 pieces 60cm of 60x60mm and 4 pieces 50 cm of 60x30mm ot 60x60mm.

Be sure everything is square and weld it.

Step 3: Casters

Weld one piece of 60x60x5mm plate for each one leg and drill a hole to the center for m20 thread rod then weld a m20 nut.

Next weld a nut to the plate of casters and then weld the all-thread to the nut.

Now you have to place the casters to the plate. In my case the casters is 100mm.

Step 4: Paint

For paint you need to cover the working surface and paint it with primer first and the color.

Step 5: Done!

Your welding table is now complete and ready to use!

    Question 10 months ago on Introduction

    Will painting the table interfere with the ground conductivity from the welder?

    Of course it will. It'd be best to run over the surface of the table with a belt sander to get a shiny bare metal finish. Even mill scale from unpainted hot rolled steel is not great, that should be removed as well.
