Welding tables make me happy. Seriously, I love them. I love it when shops have old ones with 1/2 thick tops on them that weigh so much that they came with the building. I love the new trend toward fixture tables for everyone. I just think that tables specifically designed to be used for welding, fixturing, and layouts are incredibly useful and something that you will quickly fall in love with once you have on in your own shop. Of course, I’m talking about something that is useful for metal working, but I suppose you could easily set this thing up to be used for wood working projects as well, with just a few tweaks to make it even more handy. But why hydraulic? You ask.
Well, how many times have you wished your work bench was either taller or shorter so you could do something specific on it? Or how many times have you been annoyed by having to bend over to weld something? Or better yet, how many times have you had to stand up on a box or stool in order to reach some spot to weld, because you just weren’t tall enough to comfortable reach AND weld it? It happens all the time, but with this table you can adjust it to any level you want, at any time.
I hate having to get down on the floor and work when I don’t have to, but there are times when I’ve built things on a table and had them, at some point during the project, get too tall to reach comfortable. That’s why the hydraulic table will save you. It will also save you by allowing you to raise the table up to comfortably weld things right in front of your face. I dig it. You will too. Yes, I know this one is recessed into the floor. Yours doesn’t have to be. Watch.
