I was just curious what people are using for welding tables. What about work benches or work areas.
Let's see what you got.

Here's my Bad Ass table.



It has a 1" thick blanchard ground top that is nickel plated. Yeah, I hold my breath when I grind on the table to knock welds loose and so on. :flipoff2:

It was a Machine Base for a company that was discontinuing a line from their manufacturing facility. Got it for $300!:p

It has leveling feet and is heavy as hell! I have 6' by 7' of workable surface. The hole saw holes were already there, but work real good for hooking a clamp on or a machinist clamp set to keep my stock clamped down for welding.

I will be building my Henry J chassis on this table - so eventually there will be a car sitting on top of it.

That table MUST be heavy as hell! Mine is has a 1" top plate but its only 3x3. Totally overkill for me but it came with my bender

Nothing built yet, so all I'm usually using is either a bench vise or material set across a couple aluminum saw horses. However, I've come up with what I hope is a decent table/work bench. 32"x60"x0.5" plate top, 1.5"x.125" square tubing, 1.5"x3"x.125" tube across the front edge.. If/when I build a new garage I'll make one or two more to serve as benches across one area...


I'm thinking about using .75" bolts/redi-rod and hockey pucks as adjustable feet. Anyone have any pictures of their setups to add to this thread?

Big Reed vise bolted to one end.. smaller old wilton columbian bolted to other end.

What's the model number on that vise? I just snagged a 204 1/2 and a 104 (IIRC) from C-list. According to Reed they were both sold in the early 1930's. They are the nicest vises I've ever owned too.

I don't remember the model # . I'll check next time I'm at the shop.

Just curious, how much did you pay for both of your Reed's? Any pictures?
