    Small swivel welding table

    Hi all
    A few months ago I design and built a small swivel welding table.

    As I had not a lot of room that time I choose a rotating design over an ajustable foot :

    To fix easily pieces to weld I choose to use a table with oval-shaped holes with the right size of T nuts for mill :

    I bought a laser cut steel plate (10 mm thickness), the circular hole plates was laser cutted too.

    Here is an exemple of the T nuts I use to fix pieces to weld :

    The current swivel mechanism is made of steel (notice the grease) :

    The maximum stroke is a little above +- 50 °.

    I have also manage to potentially add a rotating shaft in the future below the swivel plate to help me welding pipes or circular beads.

    The table is adjustable in height : I used 2 squared pipes with a small clearance (100 and 90 mm).
    And I glued 4 PE sheets to ease the displacement :

    The whole structure is designed to be stable and I used wheels (with brakes) to move it easily.

    As you can see, all beads are not nice, but they are strongs.
    I made tests with offcuts and also made beads cuts with my mill or manual disk grinder and see how deep the beads was !

    I used this new table these last months to improve my welding skilness.

    I appreciate a lot the "Steve Bleile" welding lectures in Youtube : very nice to analyse and see precisely what happens and what are the consequences of current, gestures, electrodes,...

    Now I am using 7018 electrodes which I was unable to use a few months ago !

    Enjoy and don't hesitate to ask me questions.
