Default Layout / Setup / Fixture / Tslot Table - 4' x 8' x 6" Thick on stand

I have what I call a layout or setup table with 3 T slots in it. It is 4'x8' and is about 6" thick hollow cast iron with webbing underneath. It was ground when new and is still in very good condition. Two slots were milled it in at some time in it's previous life and there is at least one hole drilled and tapped in one corner. This could probably be used as a bed plate as well.

I bought it for a welding table but can't bring myself to ruin it.

The plate is on a support table with jack screws to level it putting it about 3' off the floor.

I'm guessing it weighs in the 2500-3000# range.

I'm asking $1200 for it and can load on your trailer. I can be talked into delivery for a fee if you live within 100 miles and can prove you have a safe way to remove it from my trailer.

If you know what this is and need one you know this is a screaming deal. If you don't know what this is then you probably don't need it anyway.

I will take pics on Tuesday and can email or upload them then.

Very nice table!

Your price is pretty fair considering what machinery resellers sell these things for....

The nice thing about this one is; you can bolt a sheet of 1/4" to it and use that to weld to and keep the table nice and smooth, when you want to use it for fixturing or somethign more precise, pull the sheet off and you have the best of both worlds.

Thanks for the reply.

A local equipment reseller came and looked at it last night. I'm hoping to make a deal to trade for some equipment he has for sale that I need/want.

I looked at his website and a smaller table in similar condition was listed at $4800.

I almost went with the flat sheet cover but found a good price on an 8x5x3/4" welding table on casters.

I will take a 4' or larger finger brake or a vertical metal band saw on trade or partial trade.

What you have is known as a surface plate ! These are commonly used for model making and fixture building ! The groves in it are to anchor fixturing tools , such as angles and risers ! You can buy the anchors at "Presision tool" or other tooling suppliers ! Most shops swithed to Granite surface plates because they were not afected by tempetures as much .. steel plates will flex , shrink , and grow !
Who ever buys it .. sand it down with some 220 wet/dry on a good flat block about 8" x 8" and some mineral spirits ... It will take all the surface rust and burs off .. then paste wax it ! "Johnsons furniture wax"
Good luck !

Thanks!

There's no surface rust on the surface. Just some discoloration.

When I got it it had a very light flash rust that came off easily. It's waxed with Johnsons Paste floor wax. If buffed it would shine!
