Each table is 100% custom made for each client. You get to pick your size and options. After discussing your color preferences, we will search and email you photographs of raw sheetmetal until we find the perfect color for your home or office.
Before any cutting or welding, the size of the welding table will need to be determined. The amount of room needed to work around the welding table and the type of welding work to be performed will both need to be considered to make a workable welding table. A welding table consists of a top that is at least 3/8-inch thick carbon steel and sturdy steel legs made of I-beams or pipe.
Our new welding project plans called Killer Welding Projects Vol. 1 are all original and come with detailed step-by-step directions (138 pages of detailed plans and easy-to-follow directions). These welding plans were created by an engineer with a specialty in Aerospace and 3D CAD modeling. I guarantee you will be impressed by the detailed drawings, directions, and images that were created for each set of plans. All of the welding project plans will challenge veteran welders but they were created with a novice in mind so that anyone will be able to competed the projects and be happy with the results.

The Mini Mighty II forge: "Mighty hot, mighty quiet"
Making a forge is a project most smiths undertake for a few reasons. First, building a forge is much cheaper than buying one, though finding one to buy that suits the needs of a particular smith can be difficult. Suitable forges are often not available commercially. Thus, secondly, a smith can build a forge based on his or her particular needs. Lastly, if a forge is ever in need of repair, fixing it should not be a problem because the user built it and is familiar with its construction and use.
Usage. Open the valves on the propane tank and the torch and ignite the torch end. The model of torch I have uses a locking feature so that you don't have to hold the trigger down continuously. Push the lit torch into the forge and look into the forge FROM A SAFE DISTANCE to observe the flame. When I am using the forge, I push the torch in to the point where the flame follows the circular profile of the forge and produces the most hollow sounding note.
The burner holder is made from a 1 1/2" standard black pipe nipple 4 1/2 " long and two 1 1/2" conduit lock rings. I cut the threads off of mine to make it look a little better, but it is not necessary. The pipe nipple and conduit lock rings can be found at any big name hardware store. Using a #7 drill bit I drilled and then tapped the burner holder for three 1/4- 20 NC bolts that will hold the burner in.

Edit Edited by Sondra C, Tam, KnowItSome, Viral and 3 others Blacksmiths have heated metal to hammer into shapes for centuries, using fuels like wood, charcoal, or bituminous coal to heat their metal. For a modern day hobbyist, a simple fire pit and bellows will give sufficient fire temperatures to allow for small forging projects.

This project was inspired by finding a couple buckets of large nuts and bolts at a junk yard, and then deciding that i wanted to learn to weld. This project is great for your first welding project because if the welds are a mess it won't ruin the piece. There is not much measuring to do and if you make mistakes they are easy to fix or else they don't matter.
