Gotta keep the thread updated Omar! I think Harley black and orange would suite you well. Are you going to make a water table?

Finshed cutting and welding all my cross supports. The whole table is bolted together so i can tear it down if needed. I just need to prep for paint and then final assembly. Sheet metal is getting dropped off firday to be bent for my water pan. Complements of the Marine Corps AirFrame Shop. Stay tuned ladies. I think you will like the end result.

Omar, the table looks great! Since you are going to have a water table, obviously the table needs to sit as level as possible. I noticed your table is one wheels. Any way to adjust the wheels to level out the table once you have it exactly where you want it?

I dont need any level pads on it. Its pretty damn level. Overall the whole table is within 1/16 of in inch. The gantry moves so smooth. I took the die grinder with a 3m pad and polished out the cold rolled guide. it makes a differance. And its way cheaper then buying precision made guides. I need it to be mobile just do to the fact i need space depending on if a roll cage or frame repair comes in. Im really pressed for space right now. Its been so damn humid i cant paint my table. First chance i get the black and orange is getting layed down.

The table may be perfectly square and level, but concrete never is--so depending on where your table is sitting, it's likely you'll need to be able to adjust the casters to level the table.

I would add some leveling feet next to the wheels. If for no other reason then trying to load material on the table and having it slide around on you. I made it so I could raise the swivel feet a good inch off the ground to move the table around since Im also lacking space in the garage. Look at McMaster part number :6111K52

The feet can take a load of 3750lbs each. Little over kill but I wanted the bigger studs plus then I have room to grow for total weight if I ever find the need to cut 1" plate.

Alright !!!! you guys twisted my arm. I will install leveling pads in the near future. Finished up some welding and prep work for paint today. It was a real pain trying to track down some bright orange paint for the table. Let me know what you guys think. I also polished out my guide rails with some 220 grit. Its as smooth as glass. For Some strange reason I cannot post pics right now. I will try posting them later.

I hate using a level. If you built your table and say it's level and you did it on your garage floor or work bench. I'd bet money it's not level or truly plum if you were to put it on a frame table or something on that nature. Using a basic level will get you as level as what ur working on. I prefer to use angle finders or the levels with the floating ball that give you an engle measure. Match your work surface angle to the piece your building and it will belch more accurate If not dead nuts. Best thing is either a laser or string.

Just doing some up dating. Traveling for work really sucks.Building this machine is taking me to long. Everything is working good on the table. Gantry runs smooth. Just cleaning up the wiring. Still need to calibrate the machine. Hoping to cut my first file saturday. Stay tuned.

Wow! I've been to old threads for months to get enough information to make good decisions on my table build. I've mined, it seems, 5 or 6 build sights doing this. And here is a new up to date table build, hard to find.

This is is a great looking table, thanks for sharing, Omar. And yes, I'm building levering legs. I don't like the idea of having to clean a water table, got my own ideas. This is my build web sight. Table Build

One thing, I want a strong table, no aluminum rails, no V rail stuff. I got my ideas from many, many builds. Oh ya, Very inexpensive!

I hope I'm not hijacking the thread here. We are all on the same quest.

I hope I can help others,
Vern
