Mate, I've been a boilermaker for years and that's the first time I've ever seen or heard of the "Texas TIG". Brilliant! I'm definitely giving that a try next time I have a gap to fill when stick welding! Top job on the bench, too!

My son is building a 4x8 plasma table. He used 120' of 2x3 rectangle (with our design and layout, there was 12" of scrap left). It is solid. We had no gaps to fill. He measured everything and I cut it with an angle grinder. Only took one blade. We were out 1/16" on one diagonal. He was going to use 4x4" for his welding table but after seeing the performance of 2x3", I think he decided to use that.

as for blades for your chop saw, I would suggest d&r saw in Dallas ( just up the road from my shop). they can probably resharpen your old blade for a fraction of the cost. they also sell new 14" blades for about $50.

Hi Chcke2009. Many thanks for sending me how to make this product, I like the way you re-inforced the table you had to buy, and it was lovely to know where you come from, I think you might have a great video to wait for them to call again and get some footage of that, by doing that I think in future they wold leave you alone as it can't be a problem, I think you can have on your farm anything you like, plus it would be nice to ask you to open it for them instead of not getting you, to open it without your concent and that is my view of it.  I love the place yo live and I love everything you make. I wish you a long and happy life and I hope you will always keep people that realy love what you build wanting to see more of what you bild. Great work and take care working as I wold love to see much more of what you do. Kind regards James.

Wen you say "affordable" what range of $$$$ does that include? From a starting to weld, hobbyist, garage mechanic, farmer, small job-shop, fence-builder, professional prototype manufacturer perspectives those figures change (trying to learn and get good at it before investing too much money on something that I could have spent less to get to that point) hope that made sense.

Hello all. I'm new to welding. About a year into the hobby and I love it. So as my fabrication ability and imagination increase I've been buying more and more metal. So my question to you guys is this. I paid $153 for a 24' 2"x2"X1/8 square tubing. I don't have a trailer so a piece this large required 2 cuts which they charge for so it would safely fit in my truck. 2 cuts and 3 pieces at 8 foot a piece I feel like I got robbed. Any thoughts?

Just found your channel. Really cool. One question. What is the large blue boom arm with the yellow dish on the end that you keep moving around as you weld the table frame. Is it a vacuum or fume evacuator of some sort??

Fume extraction unit. Lanse got it back when he was on the farm working in his Mum's garage.

Did you  use a circular saw to cut those gussets? Metal cutting blade, I take it? The circular saw looks a little different than the standard woodcutting models.....
CavemanJoe (9 months ago)
STEVE Milwaukee metal-cutting circular saw with carbide blade.

Strech what happened to the videos of you making the portable welding table I can't seem to find it and would really like to base a welding table off that one.

New camera is good, videos have been much better with the voice over.

Never heard of Texas Tig welding, damn good idea though.

LENOX makes a good bi-metal hhs steel blade for the portable bandsaws for about #22 for a 3 pack. they last last forever

I'm surprised welding the casters didn't fry the fuck out of them, that's happened to me a couple times when you get them to hot, sounds like popcorn

Great videos keep it up me and son like to watch them

Not non stop welding. Duty cycle is 10 minute increments.
Donnie G (3 years ago)
Nice useful build Stretch. Be careful with the large 1/2" steel plate. Broken a few fingers and lost several fingernails trying to handle heavy metal stock by myself over the years. Still a big fan after following you almost from the beginning.

You should have mitred the square tube to get rid of open ends, instead of putting those caps on. It would have looked a lot cleaner in my opinion.

It's a Welding Table, not an art piece.

Hey Chuck, won't the plastic on the caster wheels melt from sparks hitting them?  Locking metal casters a better choice?

Loved the texas tig technique !! I will have to try that !!
Bulete Aurelian (3 years ago)
You can have the carbide tooth blade sharpened  (not realy a diy project)... some people/shops have the machines needet to do that.
YCM30cnc (3 years ago)
Nice work, especially liked the 'Texas Tig'. Always lots of "woulda, shoulda, coulda" options, but the work that gets done now is usually far more useful than than the 'best' work that is put off until 'someday'. Keep using what you have access to in order to get done what you want to do, Harbor Freight or not. Looking forward to the next one, :) :) :)

Gorgeous table!!! from my own experience, if you pair the diagonals, but you measured badly the sides it'll be a mess! I missed one centimeter one one side on my project and I ended up with perfect diagonals, but a new dimension of geometrical figure! hahahaahha!!!
Zach Morton (3 years ago)
I would've done the same thing with the wheels
Basilisk [KH] (3 years ago)
You asked about blades for your dry cut saw, and I want to say I've seen you with one on your saw already, but Ti-Tech blades are all we use on ours...but the draw back is they aren't cheep.
Ian Little (3 years ago)
That is a nice size for a welding table, we have 3 that size at our shop and they are invaluable. It nice being able to jig things up by just tacking them to the table, especially on bigger projects. Looking forward to the next video. Ian Little

Can u make a video on "Texas Tig"
NashCustoms (3 years ago)
Im likening your new vids and how you talk on you're computer after but sometimes it gets a little drawn out and would be better if you still said stuff at the moment.

Why haven't you tried any miller welders
jeremy love (3 years ago)
+jeremy love and Mr Tig has 26 000 so gues it has nothing to do with your subscribera huh ?
jeremy love (3 years ago)
+Grandpa Bill hate to break it to you but ALL the millers and lincolns he has reviewed are his own borrowed from friends or on loan from a store, mr tig is lincolns utube welder
Grandpa Bill (3 years ago)
+jeremy love Case in point: "Weld Tips and Tricks" = 132,433 subscribers. Jody reviews "ALL" welders including Millers / Lincoln  / Hobart. The fact that they are the top of the line is why you need those high number just to get them to look at you.
jeremy love (3 years ago)
+Grandpa Bill well grandpa i feel like u should look at how many subsrcibers he has befire putting out a lame number like 2500, and companies like miller and lincoln dont give stuff to people like lanse as they are not entry level, have been around for 50+ yrs and dont need this kinds of advertisment that fact that every welding rig out there has a luncoln or miller in the back of it is all the advertisment they need for people to knkw there the best
Grandpa Bill (3 years ago)
Then start doing at least one video a week and build up your subscribers to 2,000/2,500 and then some MFG'R might take a look at you. (If you want Miller stuff you might need 5,000 or more subscribers because they are a top-of-the-line brand name.)

Do you know what the old welder said to the young welder. "I got welding rod older then you." Lol
Brandon S (25 days ago)
Do you know what the younger welder said to the older welder? Wow, you've been doing it wrong this whole time?
DanteGTZ (3 years ago)
Very cool video!  I built my table using similar techniques.  I also use Harbor Freight casters/wheels and have not had any problems with them.  Looking forward to see the remaining parts.
Smokey Eagle (3 years ago)
You should see the work bench I use. It's a 4 x 8 with 3/4" plate on top with I Beams as the legs. Its huge but weighs a lot.

The welding table of awesomeness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like a monster table. Gonna be badass. Looking forward to pt2

Good video stretch i love these build videos
gary mathews (3 years ago)
great build . you could've used a come along to draw the table top on to the table base .you mite be able to file your chop saw blade sharp again .or find a place that sharpens saw blades .
Gee Dubb (3 years ago)
steel wheels have served me well after rubber/poly/composite wheels got flat spots due to the weight. Hope you reconsider before wasting time with these
Brandon S (25 days ago)
That's a good point... never considered flat spots. I was always worried about the bearings.
Hmm Lance , after thoughts the chop saw  stand could of served   as weld   table if you built off it ? Oh well looking  forward to part 2 Tu .   
Leo Watson (3 years ago)
I've used similar to Texas tig but with mig But I just used thin strips of scrap for filler

aserta (3 years ago)
One way to tell if a surface is square is to cross (from corner to corner at equal rise) two pieces of thread (plastic wire is perfect). If those two touch then the 4 corners are in the same plane, if they don't then you have a twist, also based on it you can tell which way you have the twist, how much etc.

Check out Wide Vision Metal Fab I think he is useing a diablo wood blade on his metal cutting saw. He has a video on it, now he did say that only the diablo would work.
Hasan Redzic (3 years ago)
Nice
Cool project Lanse.  I changed out the casters on my welding table a couple months back and did the drill / tap thing, welding would have been much quicker, here is a vid of it on my channel...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-Sje7OaHTA&list=PLp-xyMuBRWa87PrCbHow0QBF6ur_yB8O4&index=2

I have the DeWalt 14" Multi cutter . I just used a Harbor Freight circular saw sharpener to give mine some new life. I had 3 chipped teeth but it still cuts.

youimtube (3 years ago)
Return those casters. They won't hold up to the weight of the welding table. I used those for my 3'x5' 1/2 " thick welding table and they only lasted 6 months or so. I ended up getting G a HF 40" tool box for misc storage and took the casters off of that and am currently using them on my welding table with zero complaints.
Brandon S (25 days ago)
Oh yeah that's a realistic option...lol. How about telling people where you could just buy casters.
Any chance your going to post anymore tractor type vidz? I miss your old vidz lol.
