Need a cheap welding/cutting table?

Try an old burned out gas or charcoal Barbecue Grill. (You know the one your neighbor shoves out to the street with the free sign on it) Makes a great little practice table for use in the garage and controls sparks easily enough. You may want to take the top off for welding ease but you can also preheat small parts if you need to if the thing still works...........


A few tips and a word of caution from old jody...

clean up the grate with a grinder where parts will come in contact and attach the ground directly to the grate so you will get a good ground.

get rid of the tank for safety sake. you can always hook one up for those rare preheats. and remove it while you weld.
