The LIFE TABLE build

So I built my self a 4ft x 8ft x 1in thick A36 plate steel table .

I got a deal on the new plate . Then c-list score all the rest of the frame work from a guy who had piles of these cut scraps or screw ups .

10in c-channel 1/4 wall . 5in x 3in 3/8 lower brace & shelf support . 3in x 3in x 1/4 wall square tube legs . 5in x 5in 1/4 plate for feet .

She is named ROSIE after the AC/DC song . She is 36in off the ground and moves with the help of a pallet jack . . . Cause she is just over 2,000 lbs .

Waiting for a stick of 2in x 2in 1/4 wall seamless square tube to add points around the frame so you can add the vise / bench grinder / drill press / or other stuff any corner of the table you need .

Going to get the top blasted at the local media blast shop and leave the rest raw and rusty . The top will get sanded fairly smooth and a light light maybe to protect in the shop .

She kicked my but over the last 3 days . Lots of heavy parts and design plans .

And the real crazy part is there is 5 more now to build waiting in the line up . But they will be easy since I saved my info for the cuts . And when I was cutting parts I cut multiple batches for the legs and feet already .

1 more 4 x 8 and 4 4 x 6 to do .

No.2 is now done . It's trying to show dominance over no.1 but no.1 is not going to have any of that crap .

And some action pics of how I flip them by my self and no fork lift or crane .
