Today I decided to cut to cutting some steel. I just finished painting my single car garage I set up as a shop (I should have taken the two car garage in reality!!), and also got my electrical all installed. So before I clutter it full of tools and equipment, I wanted to get my cuts done. I made a cut list for the .120 wall 2x2 and 2x3 material. Yes it's over kill, yes it's expensive, butI plan on having this around for a while. Recommended with 16GA 2x2, and I'll only be using that for the lower shelf support which will be roughly 4x5 to hold the plasma cutter, etc. All I cut today was the top frame, lower water tray supports, the legs (using 5" 1000lb locking casters), the gantry risers, and the gantry rail support tubes. All my cuts were made on my Ellis 1600 which cuts this stuff like butter. The made a stupid mistake though. I was cutting three 59" pieces of 2x2 and marked my cut location. Then I realized I had the saw set up for my 2x2 pieces that were 3.25" long as my risers. So I'm like "I better cut that first" and slid the tube over and made the cut. Then I slid the tube down and cut on my mark. Hmm... why is my tube 3.3" too short? I saved the day and fired up the Miller 350P and "mended" the tube. Guess I needed a third cup of coffee. I'll begin tacking the table together in the next couple of days.
