    Photobucket works great

    I got a tip from one of the readers to use photobucket. Photobucket is free. I just download from the camera into photobucket. At the bottom of each picture is three lines on image size. If you check the bottom one it will say copied. You then go back to your post put your cursor where you want it and paste it in. If you open two browsers you can jump back and forth and it works really well.

    Modela,
    thanks for the pics, great job!!!
    Question: how do you get your pics to just come up like that, so we don't have to click on a link? Nice job!

    Here are some more pictures of the bench. The H frame is made of 4"x7"x1/4" sq tubing. We bought this for fork lift pockets and cut off a few for some carts we were building. The leftover piece was just enough to get 2 48" pieces and one 55" piece that form the H.

    Notice also a piece of the orange colored steel tubing I used for most of the bench. There are also rectangular supports under the 3/8" top and the top is overlapped on two sides for clamping. Notice some holes that were in the old tubing. I thought I would leave these for future additions.

    The bench works nice for setting up a chop saw (see pix). Notice in one shot that the top extension piece of 3/8" is removable and I am thinking of making additional "pop in" attachments like a firebrick or vise attachment. I left the ends of the 4" x 7" tubing open thinking they might be handy to bend things with or to rack some rod.

    More Table

    No problem copying. I will post some more pictures of it. My idea was to build it like a car frame with a body on top. The frame (H) is heavy but all of the tubing is 1/8". I doubled up in some places where I thought I might be adding attachments.

    I always like big casters and fortunately I had some around. I still need to add on some things on it but I am making a list. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Anvil

    I don't know what brand it is, only that it was my dad's and probably his dad's. Where is a brand marked?

    The anvil is just sitting there looking for a place. I was thinking about raising it up on a block of wood or mounting it independently on its own.

    Very clever mounting the anvil right there. Do you know what brand of anvil it is?

    Welding space

    I made it so that I can roll it out more into an open space. I worked with a fixed bench before but was always working on something that did not fit.

    I am sure it is going to get its character nicks and dings but I thought that I would preserve the flatness as long as I could to help in layout.

    I have a paint booth that I put down cheap 1/2" plywood as a floor cover. One tip from the people on this forum was to use plywood to keep the floor from being destroyed. It worked in the paint booth and hopefully it will work on my new epoxy floor.

    I have an older beat up cutting table that I will probably leave alone and use for the rough work. It is on casters too.

    Anyway, I found out years ago that if you paint something up you tend to respect it a bit more. Sounds good to start up with, anyway.
