From the way you had it tacked together I thought you were gonna use square tube for legs and thought hey thats a good plan, the way you have it will be plenty strong

Frame looks plenty strong. You will only have to worry about it if you pull it around by one leg.

When you put the top on, be sure to only stitch weld it in. 1/4” long tacks will hold it. The longer they are, the more it will warp it. And nothing sucks more than a warped top. Definitely take your time with this and shim if you need too to keep it flat.

First I had to roll the table to get it upright to do some welding and grinding of skme welds before the top went on.

Then the forklift was called into service again to set the frame on the plate for the top.

Next sequence of pictures is rolling the table upright after welding the frame to the top.

Much better in the shop. No pile of beams in the middle.

I added two reciver tubes to the table. These are to hold future table accessories and change things out or remove all together for a flat table as needed. The tubes welded into the table are 2x2x.25 wall. I got some 1 1.5 square tube with .25 wall. This will make my pins that will drop into the tubes. Had to mill it down a bit for it to slide in easily.

The first pin will be welded to a 12x12 3/8 plate that will bolt to my big Reed 206R vise I want to restore.

The heat index was 97 today. I need more fans in the building just to be able to work in or on it.

October is coming, or at least that is what they tell me.

Hey Tim,
I'm watching your progress, wondering if you have moved into the shop living quarters yet?

No I haven't. To make a long story short life and stress pushed me very close to the edge of a cliff. For right now im taking some time away from working on the building its self ( a huge factor of why I was at the point i was) and decided till I get myself back to my normal self and my head back in a better place I'd tinker around with things that don't seem so demanding and overwhelming.

Also despite how things look from my posts...money is very tight right now.
