    Woo Hoo!!
    I'm fabricating! - making my new work bench.

    The welders were simple.

    I no-brained the TIG - put the electrodes in the wrong sockets. Switch plugs, welds perfectly (or as well as I am capable). I realized this one early this morning.

    The MIG was also stupid simple - just had to switch two legs on the hot lines. It fired right up and I'm sticking metal together.

    I knew it was simple, just wasn't expecting it to be that simple.

    Nah, I didn't. I ran out of room.
    I sold it and the lift.

    I did bring the build table, though.

    I've had a new Titanic in mind for a while - the old one was good, but I wanted to do a couple things a little differently on this one.

    First off, this one will be air tight - I'll be able to plumb my air into the top and then have a couple quick breaks on the front. The last Titanic's air was cobbled and flimsy.

    I'm also plating the top with 1/4" instead of 1/8" steel.
    The edge of the top plate will go all the way to the edge of the table instead of stopping at the round edge of the tubing - this will let me use the table as a beating surface with a sharp edge, so forming things like the upper arms on the XP will be easier.

    I have a beast of a vice now and it will get mounted on it's own pedestal on the side of the table. No more bent faces on the vice!

    I'm also moving the TIG over to the right side of the table instead of having it on the left. It was always a pain in the butt having to bring the cords around my back.

    I'll be starting a build thread on it in a bit (and stealing most of this text) - only have one pic, but hey, that's better than none and there will be MOAR tomorrow.

    I use 7/8 road plate. 5 x 9 , 4 x 6 x 3/8 legs. Hasn't moved a inch.
    A contractor came back 5 months later and looked for it.
    Hadn't seen it.......??

    Well.....
    I already bought the plate, so that's what's getting stuck down.
    I survived with 1/8" for 8 years, so doubling up is good for me.
    My main beating area was on the edges, so this should work.
