Heavy-Duty Welding Table
James L. Cotner, Danville, Penn.: "I built a heavy-duty welding table that's unlike anything I've ever seen. The top is 7 ft. wide and 42 in. deep and is made out of 1/2-in. thick steel steel. It mounts on 4-in. dia. steel pipe legs. A large vise is welded to a larger 4 1/2-in. dia. piece of pipe that slips up and down one of the legs so it can be positioned wherever needed by simply tightening set screws. It's useful because I can raise it up above the table or align it with the top of the table.
  "I mounted a seat on one leg using another piece of 4 1/2-in. dia. pipe. The seat bolts to the pipe so I can raise it up or down as needed. It's great for working on small projects. My welding leads are on a reel under the table and the welder is on the floor off to one side.
  "Altogether, I spent about $150 in parts, mostly from a scrapyard."
