Texas Metal Works welding tables are computer designed, CNC cut, and professionally assembled to give you years of service in demanding environments. Our 40″ x 40″ weld tables are the best bang for the buck in the industry!

Welding Table Description

Texas Metal Works offers fully fabricated tables shipped FREE – saving you time, hassle, and money! Our 40″ x 40″ welding tables offer over 11 square feet of surface area, covered by standard laser cut 5/8″ / 16mm fixturing holes.

The surface is a true 40″ wide and 40″ long, and the 6″ sidewalls allow for additional fixturing outside of the table dimensions. For even MORE room, you can always add one or more of our welding table extensions.

Table Top Features

  • A full 40 inch wide x 40 inch long work surface.
  • Standard 38″ surface height (can be customized for $100 charge).
  • 6 inch table sides also allow fixturing.
  • Over 500 precision CNC cut holes (5/8″ / 16mm).
  • Accommodates Stronghand and similar tooling.
  • Fabricated from 1/4″ A36 structural steel plate.
  • Professionally assembled and guaranteed forever!

Optional Table Base Features

  • 2 in x 14 gauge heavy tubular steel framing and legs.
  • 5″ swivel casters with Total Lock Brakes rated over 800 pounds per wheel.

Welding Table Components

Complete tables are built from dozens of laser cut parts, which is just one key component to the overall accuracy of the finished product. Sure, our CNC machines can maintain accuracy to within .002″, but let’s face it – a stack of parts isn’t going to perfectly fabricate itself!

Welding Table Construction

Read our full article: How We Build Super Flat Welding Tables

The strength of a Texas Metal Works weld table comes from the interlocking series of ribs supporting the surface. These precision cut ribs lock together and also interlock with the table surface.

As you might guess, fabricating a huge table with precision requires extraordinary effort and a lot of practice. But we also augment our fabricator’s experience with the best tools available. In addition to using 142 bolts, 132 feet of threaded rod, 63 fixturing plates and making hundreds welds – we also fabricate all of our table on a heavy duty milled reference surface!

You can read a complete discussion of our welding table build process here, but the short version is that we start out by securely bolting every table top directly to a precision milled surface.

Only after securing the top to a reference surface do we add the ribs and sidewalls and secure them by bolting everything firmly in place before locking it in with hundreds of weld points.

At the end of the day, we’re not happy until we can lay a level across the surface and visually verify that there is almost no (or none whatsoever) daylight peeking through.

Notes on Shipping

As you can imagine, these massive tables can be a little challenging to ship and receive. When we ship any of our tables the carriers require us to put them on a pallet. But normal pallets won’t work, so we manufacture custom skids specifically for shipping these bad boys.

Each table is bolted directly to a custom skid with heavy duty hex head screws to ensure it stays put during transport. If you choose the option with casters they’ll be placed in a box and safely strapped to the skid.

These skids are then loaded onto a truck at our end via forklift, and we use long fork extensions to put them in the truck from the end of the table. Shipping companies only carry a small pallet jack on the truck, and those jacks absolutely can’t move these tables. So on the reverse end it’s going to require a similar setup for unloading purposes.

At a bare minimum, you’ll need 48″ forks to lift the table out of the truck. However, we recommend 72″ or 84″ fork extensions. Amazon sells a bunch of extensions in case you need them. We’ve used these 72″ fork extensions to get the job done, and these 84″ fork extensions work even better. When buying forklift extensions pay particular attention to the width of your forks to make sure you get the right size!

If you can get heavier duty fork extensions we HIGHLY recommend it! Especially if you order your table along with several accessories that will ship on top. The tables plus accessories can often exceed 1,000 pounds, and the light duty extensions may flex or bend. Please contact us if you have any concerns about receiving, or if we need to make special plans to get things delivered safely!
