BUILDING A PORTABLE WELDING / CUTTING TABLE

by
Bruce Bauerlein


I needed a small metal table that I could carry around to various jobs to use for holding weldements and for cutting. I wanted the table to be small enough to be easily carried and put into the back of my truck, but strong enough to hold heavy metal parts for welding and cutting.

I came up with the following simple design which works well for welding and cutting and the table doubles as a small step stool. The size of the table I built is 18" BY 12" BY 20" high.You can make the table any size needed to serve your particular need.

MATERIAL LIST FOR TABLE SHOWN
( All Material Mild Steel )
The pictures will show how I assembled the table. I left spaces between the top pieces which allow material to be clamped to the table and room for dross during cutting. I alsoused two pieces of angle iron to make a welding rod and chipping hammer holder.
