    How did this thread get from mill scale removal all the way through the "snip snip" and finally to its current position of making grilled cheese? Talk about getting side tracked.

    That way, if you drop yer sandwich on the table, ya kin still pick it up and eat it!

    i like the way you think.

    George,

    Definitely use the anti-spatter. That way, if you drop yer sandwich on the table, ya kin still pick it up and eat it!

    I will, but be forwarned it's just a regular table, nothing fancy.

    Biggest I have is a 5" grinder (DW831) and I am getting to old to horse one of those big ones around. However I am in the process of doing what you advised, only with my 5" grinding wheel, and 5" flapdisk, and finishing off with 80 grit sait sanding disks. Most of the work is almost done, thanks for the tip on the anti-spatter I was going to use wd40 but that sounds like a better idea.

    I have finished putting the new weld table togeather and just need to get the top surface done. The 30" X 40" X 1/2" plate I have is HRS and has some very heavy mill scale on it. I cleaned the bottom with a grinding wheel, then flap disk, and finally some Sait sanding disks. I tried my belt sander with not very good results. My question is, is there a better way to get the mill scale off the top surface than the way I did the other side? and if I have to do it the same way, what can be done to dull the finish so I have fewer reflective problems?

    Laying around is getting kinda old though
    truer words were never spoken, after my back sergerys i still have days that my med's just wont do it and thats my only option. drives me nuts, cant stand being broken. 100 chanels on the TV and nothing to watch so all you can do is lay there thinking about what you want to be doing out in the shop.

Even at that it will most likely sit in the box where the FedEx driver leaves it through next week (since it weigh 85lbs. )
    Kevin I had my “V” done when I was 27. I was working on a project getting ready to go to Alaska. I was installing H-beam columns on the deck of a barge. Lots of grunt work. Come-a-longing things into place, crap like that. I took Friday afternoon off went into the Doctor’s office for my snip, snip. Went home laid around all weekend, right back at it Monday morning. Not one problem . But like you, I have heard some horror stories .

    I would consider it more like contamination in the mrs's pool or flow rates.
