    Nice looking frame! I really need to learn how to weld. Can you post how you are attaching the cable chain on both ends? That looks like a nice solution for routing the spindle cable.

    Thanks on the frame. I will be fabing up some sheet metal brackets. Once they are finished I will post pictures.

    Thanks,

    I have the prefab factory built stand and thinking about running like four beads on the corners to lock it to the machine. I know from experience make sure ALL the 120 volt cords and grounds are disconnected from wall. Plus bond the machine and stand together with heavy grounds so they do not try to ground back to the welder. Then I will run a 2 inch bead in each corner. If I need to take apart in the future, cut off disk and angle grinder time.

    Why do you want to weld it to the base? Is it because you couldn’t bolt it? Just curious.

    The bolt holes are the size of the bolts, with threads in the stand. Not enoungh clearance. I have one in others are very close but very little room for fingers. I hope the newer one have larger holes. I would feel better if it was welded.

    That’s what I figured, I had to use my plasma to slot out the holes in the table since the drawing I got was way off and unfortunately I had already built my table, I even used 3/8 bolts lol (1” on the length not sure how they ****ed that up so bad since the width was correct). You could jack up the table and use a die grinder to open up the holes. That way you don’t have to mess up the paint. Just a idea so you don’t have to break out the welder and probably the same amount of work since you’ll have to grind the powder coat off anyway to get a good weld.

    The stand isn't hardened, is it? Can you just drill the holes out larger?

    Holes in stand are threaded. The holes in the frame are the size you would make for the bolts.... IF you had a perfect alinement. No way I could get those bolts started without a way to get the holes perfect. Hence they needed to be much larger. I tried the die angled die grinder with a carbide burr but gave up.

    A dermal with the small cutoff wheels they have should work. That’s if you have a dermal of course lol. That’s why I just broke out the plasma cutter on mine, it literally took me a minute to slot mine out. I obviously notched out mine when it was off the stand when it first showed up.
    Good luck I’m sure you’ll get it figured out.

    Looks nice. Yup I have a shop full of tools. welders and even a little metal lathe but sold my plasma cutter. I never used it, and you would be surprised at how fast a 24x24 shop can fill up.
