Welding table

Im going to be making a welding table. What do you all think of the c channel tables vs a flat plate top?
And I think Im going to make it 3x5,does that sound reasonable?

Might be worth looking at the Certiflat tables. They use a torsion box design with pre-drilled holes for a pretty reasonable (imo) price. If you go diy I would just do a plate top for simplicity.

I work in a laser shop so when we built ours, we just took a sheet of 1/2" steel and cut a 4'x6' rectangle. Works great, every once in awhile i'll take the flap disk to it and grind off any spatter. So far it's held up a good 7 years and is no worse for wear.

3x5 sounds good. Like Hp609 says, make it as big as you can. I built mine with expanded metal on the top of a fame. But its too small for mr now.

Welding table

My son just bought one from Snap on. 2'-6"x3'-4" with a 3/8" top plate. Drawers and storage.
Best upgrade was from old Clark MIG to the ESAB welder. MIG/TIG/Stick. Changed our welds from passable to excellent.
Table gets used for everything.

Is that a welding blanket in your pix? Where is the best place to get one and what do they usually cost? Thanks

Believe we got it at Harbor Freight. Was a ways back. Their site says $22.99 for a 4'x6' blanket.

I built one out of an old steel government desk. Reinforced it and built a lower frame to put it on casters. Covered the lower frame with expanded metal to act as cord storage.
Bought a sheet of 1/2" plate, cut it to size and added 2" receiver tubing (like for trucks) to both sides. Mounted my vices and grinders on receiver plates so you can move them around easily. Made a frame to hold a plasma, my Esab and (3) gas bottles. Added handles and grinder pockets to hold clamps and grinders. Wired the whole thing to where it's all running off of a single 220V cord with (4) 110V outlets and the plasma and welder wired in 220V.
