    One asked plans for the table:

    Location of the welds matters.
    Otherwise it might produce distortion and prevent mounting / extension / vise components to move inside the frame.

    Idea is that you can easily mount / unmount vise, bending-, extension, grinding-.. or any other tool from the table, and get more room for it when needed.

    Table also has built in vise ( moxon or how its called ? ) that also works as an extension part.

    This can be also replaced if needed.

    Mounting has made using 30mm x 30mm x 3mm square tube. Its strong and gives firm connection inside 40mm x 40mm x 4mm tube ( frame )

    Bending brake and vise / extension part has been connected to 30mm square tubes with 4mm thick plate, then those comes to same level with table top.

    Thanks.

    I actually thought the same, this kind of stuff could be done for sale, and one could even earn something.
