    Welder ruck with a couple of cantilevered tables

    Hello gents, I am a newbie to here aboard from Yokohama, and a hobbyist welder. Last summer I got an old but a refurbished TIG welder made by Hitachi Co. that weighs nearly 40 and some kilograms so made up my mind to make a ruck for her so that she should not accumulate much metallic dust from the floor. I designed her on a 3D CAD, Spaceclaim provided from Designspark;
    https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/home

    This is the one I did on this CAD;

    This ruck has two tables jointed to the main post at the back cantilevered, so that this can provide me a lot more utility in operation.

    Now it looks like:

    At the front ends of each table I put a couple of wooden hooks that can slide in the horizontal arms.

    The wooden hooks in the ends of the shelves is brilliant!

    Thanks Sossol, that's only because I will get a lot more aching when I bump my head on it if it were made of steel, lol.

    I understand that. My skull is scarred from stubbing it on things.
