Dewalt quietly launched a portable welding table earlier this year, the succinctly-named Dewalt Adjustable Height Portable Steel Welding Table and Work Bench (model DXMF4618WT, SKU 92796).
The Dewalt welding bench features all-steel construction, and has a weight capacity of 1000 pounds while only weighing 40 pounds.
Its top work surface measures 46″ x 18″, and has an array of 3/4″ holes and slots to fit clamps and mounting fixtures.
The table legs folds in for compact storage, and also feature a double-locking mechanism to prevent them from retracting under heavy loads. One of the legs has a convenient cord-minder to take up cable slack.
When fully extended, the adjustable legs bring the free-standing working height up to 36″.
With the legs folded in, the base measures 8 inches tall and can be used on top of an existing wood or metal workbench. (Note: the 46″ x 18″ specs refer to the table top; Dewalt does not specify the dimensions of the welding table’s footprint.)
A large handle on one side should make the 40-pound table easier to transport.
There are grounding studs on the sides, so you don’t have to find a convenient spot on the material to clamp your welder.
I have recently gotten into welding. I started by buying a Hobart Handler 210MVP, and signed up for an excellent evening class with a local company.
It soon became apparent that my impeccably designed woodworking benches where not at all suitable for welding.
Dewalt perfectly timed this release – I discovered it just after I started shopping around for a welding bench, and promptly ordered one from Amazon.
Stuart’s Note: At the time of this posting, Amazon sold out, but you can find the Dewalt welding table at other retailers. The Amazon link is provided in case anyone wanted to see more user reviews.
Assembly was straightforward, and I was immediately impressed by how sturdy the table was.
I had a few spot welds to do on a 4-foot wheel arch, and the table was certainly up to the challenge. I particular liked the attached grounding studs and how quick I could get everything set up.
So far, I’m really happy with this purchase and am looking forward to using it extensively over the coming months!
