    Got a sweet new welding table.

    Hey everybody. I got a new welding table recently and I figured I would give a quick review of it cause it's just amazing. I just got tired of fighting to make stuff square and flat so I got a 36" x 72" Buildpro table and fixturing kit.Simply put yes it is WELL worth the money. I am only sorry I didn't just get one sooner. What a time saver.

    Man I would love to have a table like that. I really think I would love being able to use all of the little fixtures and clamps with that thing.

    Oh yes very sweet setup ... Mine is shop built ... Best move I did on it was to "slat" the top ... I left a variety of spaces for the purpose of clamping.

    I've had a couple guys pm me about this table always the same or similar questions. I hunted all over to find a good price on it. The best price I found at the time was at Industrial Tool Crib. They are somehow affiliated with LeHigh Valley Abrasives. I bought the table and some discs about 2 weeks apart and was surprised when I got confirmation and shipping emails form t he exact same guy... then I noticed his email signature referenced LeHigh Valley. Anyway they are the same. I got the biggest table, caster kit, leg brace kit, and the 128 pc. square tube fixture kit. It's everything I need to do all my stuff. One note on the fixture kit I got is that it does not have ANY round tube fixtures.

    Notes on the table after 8 months of use. Worth every penny! I spent $6,700 on this thing and it paid for itself in ~4 months. At the same time it's not a necessity for most hobbyists. It is a necessity for guys who are doing heavy hobby/light production where accuracy starts to get critical. For furniture builders some form of platen table, this one or another style (like Acron or Bluepoint), is fundamental to success.

    I loved the fixture kit I got. I agonized over which one to get for weeks. But in the end I am VERY pleased with it. Buying the fixtures a la carte is expensive. I recommend getting at least a 70-100 piece kit to start off. You will save a lot of money by bundling and you will learn what you need without having to buy too many of the pieces you use the most.

    I have also formulated a plan to build your own table which uses the Buildpro plates and fixtures AND is very flat and square.
    Best regards,

    Justin
