Default Shop Table the BEAST!

If I had the equipment to handle such a monster I would buy it. The 5” thick plate steel top is ideal for the type of work I do (hammer forming). They told me it weighs 6000 pounds.

Here's a 3000 pounder for your consideration.

This table is not good for hammer forming, there is not enough mass directly below the hammer, especially for larger jobs with thicker sheetmetal.

It looks like it is made from 1/2”-3/4” plate welded to structural beams underneath. This configuration will absorb too much energy which will tire the worker sooner than later.

Looks like something I'd drag home
