    Due to space issues I've not really had anywhere to mount my pillar drill, so following on from my space saving welding table and welding cart/trolley, today's project was a fold away stand for my pillar drill. Again this is built from what I have laying about, most of it reclaimed !

    Starting to get a better feel for the MIG as well so good practice 20200428_142850.jpg 20200428_142743.jpg 20200428_142857.jpg

    Was worried it might pull the garage wall over

    Do those bolts go through the wall to a backing plate on the other side ?
    If not a fold down leg would be a good idea.
    I like your fold down table.

    Can't get to the other side but they are in the wall solid, I did the obligatory hang on it and bounce test lol ! I'll see how I go I've got a bit of tube left that will do it if needed.

    The blacksmith who had the workshop next to mine had a wacking great vice hanging off the wall on a similar bracket. Not aware of it ever moving. He didn’t baby it either.

    Only had it a couple of months but done all sorts of stuff with it, I'm new to MIG welding but found it really easy to get the hang of ( well enough or what I want to do). Better with the big bottle on it.

    Good idea but I wouldn't trust my welds to make one.
