Re: Building a steel workbench

It depends on how you are supporting the 3/8 surface. I would recommend building a frame that supports the entire perimeter of the 3/8 steel top. This woulf eliminate your concern depending on what your span is between your uprights. I would think a leg at eachend and one in the middel would work. I would definately build the table with an overhang for clamping purposes.

Re: Building a steel workbench

My table has a 6"" though, and I have wailed on that thing. Go thicker on the top, I actually woud have gone thicker looking back.

Re: Building a steel workbench

My plan is to put stainless skin over the 3/8"" or so under the top.

As for overhang, I just revised and made it 3"" on the sides. I feel that would be adequate for my purpose as a general workbench including welding. The bench will be stationary so no overhang in the back. There actually would be a backsplash which I am yet to add. I gave it some more thought and have decided that I would add 1/2"" thick, sounds good? I would think the thickness of 1/2"" x 18"" steel top without too much deformation from working on it? The upper horizontal plates are 3/8"" both sides on each end which is the same thickness of the square tube members.

Re: Building a steel workbench

That sounds like it''d skip the stainless.

Mine has an 11 gauge hot rolled, mild steel top that sits on a sheet of 3/4'' mdf. You need to do that to deaden the sound otherwise it will clang like a big bell.

I''m curious how you can keep mild steel top nice and clean? I know it is a bench to be worked on; however, sometime you need a clean surface for a certain task. I''d like to do this once and right

If I am understanding correctly, I should go with thinner plate with wood under it as a general purpose table ... and thicker plate (no wood) as a welding table? Is that what you are implying?

This has been helpful so far ... please keep it coming. Thanks!!

Re: Building a steel workbench

Jack, that is a very nice bench. That vise looks very similar to mine ... is that Wilton 1765?

I could try and consider going to 1/2""images/smilies/eyecrazy.gif""0""""Eyecrazy""inlineimg""good"" plate?

Re: Building a steel workbench

3/8"" plate is going to make noise with a hammer no matter how much wood you put under it. It will also transfer the blows to the concrete and depending on how well they compacted the soil you will get an echo sound as well.
Any stationary bench should be bolted to the wall and / or the floor for stability This will also correct any wobble due to heating of the metal when welding.

Re: Building a steel workbench

Why not make the bench all steel and then make a wood and stainless cover for part of it. That would take care of the clean surface. Make the wood and stainless section hinge at the back so you could lift it off and secure to the wall. Or make a storage shelf under the table close to the top so you could slide it off and push it under.

Re: Building a steel workbench

Just a thought here...after reading some of the comments. I think we are venturing into analysis paralysis. We might be over thinking things.
