I have a king cab pick up, that extra lngth makes all the difference, espescially for carrying long stuff, over the roof!
my mate has one of the L200s with just the 2 front seets the tub is massive in comparison
My actual bench is an angle iron top frame , this is 40x40 by 6mm
Some wood 20 by 120mm
And a 3mm sheet metal
The legs are just 30x30 box tubing
Is strong enough for the purpose
The next bench I will build I will use
The same design or just some modifications
As adding some T section between the frame and the sheet metal to give more rigidity to the top
Nothing more than
For what I do is enough
The author of this topic could use 6mm and add a sub structure to give more rigidity
Useless things. Never owned and wouldn't bother. Stick with a decent sized van.
Ive Owned 3 just love them , When racked they are racked they are really good, comfortably slide 8x4s in with tail gate dropped, ive always had a trailer aswell makes carrying ballest easier plus legal. Max tow is 3t braked
Change of career will make it more sensible.
Plus i think they look the nuts even just the rear quarter
The welding table is in i may get a small broach and bolt it down in a few places.
But I could have some issues to welding there
To MANY(I wrote much so corrige) things that could catch on fire
That's what the fire extinguisher is for.
That bench is just for tig welding. The rest happens in the other workshop.
These made in 6mm worked surprisingly well
sexy I like that is that 2 smaller tables
Yes a pair of 6’x3’ ish
I had one done for a pal but his mrs said no so the mad farmer on here had it
good idea keeps the weight down and makes them more manageable
so fire extinguisher in one hand and Tig torch on the other
its not like mig or stick welding where there is lots of splatter
Yep I know was just joking about
But I'm little bit on the safety side
I don't like to weld,cut , heat metals where I can cause a fire
But yes Tig is way more safer than other processes when talking about fire risk
i have had fire on my other bench when stick welding! teach me to be so messy
I had fire various times when stick welding
The worst of all it's been when I put fire on a boat
I was welding a little stainless part and someone didn't advise me about what was happening
I figured out what was happening only once I had to change rod
Other times welding on farm equipment (oily greasy fuels etc)
Also grinding but in this cases I was the combustible source
