OK! now you have some material to make a table out of. To make it neater, drill a pattern of holes in one end to bolt things down to. Also drill holes around the edge about 1 1/2 inch in for the same reason. There will be times that clamping to the table is not enough and a direct bolt down is a real help.

The first picture you can barely see the holes on the left hand end of the table.
Also the table is adjustable for height with the jack and the pins on the legs. Just some ideas for you to mull over.

Heh, I forgot I posted a question here I was at the scrap yard last week and saw 1/4" plate about 30" X 60" Seems like scrap prices are about .31 cents around here. Guess I should grab it.

yea, scrap is going at .20cents here, but i doubt i would ever see something so nice at the scrap yard here. If there was i wouldn't get it anyways. (to many scavengers that hang out there more than me!)

Bender,

At that price I would jump on it, up here anything of that size would be at a preminum and they would get extra for a clean piece (no holes or weld marks). I just paid $88 for 4' x 4' x 1/4", with a edges that looked like they were cut out with an axe.

3/8" plate is what I used for mine and it works great. I built a framework out of 1 1/2"X .120" square tube for the underside of the top and then built the lower section and I haven't had any flex or distortion at all. The dimensions of mine are 30"x60". Mike.

Hey Bryan did you ever get ahold of SSS for the going rate of new plate? I paid $.37/lb New for mine last time and the north store usually has a ton of scrap for $.20/lb as long as they don't have to cut it.
