Even if you aren't a married guy who is going to get in trouble for taking the house vacuum out to the garage, a dedicated shop vacuum will do the job better and faster. And if the clean up has to do with spilled liquids, safer too. Household vacuums are easy to clog and ruin when you start trying to suck up metal shavings, rust, body filler dust, and the random accumulated detritus that is always found under the carpets of old project cars. Shop vacs typically have larger hoses, and less restrictions to allow them to suck up bigger chunks without clogging, plus larger bags and other features making them perfectly suited for their job.
When you're working with hot metal, an ordinary workshop table is apt to crash and burn under the pressure - sometimes literally. Eastwood welding tables and work stands are designed to handle the heavy loads and heat that are common with welding or plasma cutting projects. Made of heavy-gauge steel, ssthese welding benches have elevated work surfaces that you can set doors, fenders or hoods directly on while working. You'll be more comfortable and more effective than if you're slouched over on a concrete floor.
We carry several styles of welding tables for DIYers who need a good place to work. Eastwood has folding welding stands that store easily when not in use, adjustable welding tables that can be set at different angles and slatted plasma cutting tables that make it easy to clamp projects in place. Turn your fender stand into a welding workstation with a work stand welding top or get a fixturing set-up table for precision fabrication. In addition to the welding stands and accessories developed by our R&D guys, Eastwood also carries a number of CertiFlat modular fabrication table kits for projects of any size. Customer satisfaction is 100 percent guaranteed on all of our welding equipment.
