Have not finalized which model I will purchase but leaning towards the 4x8 table. I do have an issue that I will have to address no matter what table I purchase after the first of the year and that is:
No matter what size I buy, it has to be mobile. Reason being is, at times I have heavy construction equipment in the shop (front end loaders and once in a while a excavator and that entails moving equipment around and whichever table I end up buying, it will have to be mobile to make room when I have equipment in the shop and we are working on it.
My question is, are the frames on the tables rigid enough to add heavy duty casters without compromising them, or do I need to add additional bracing to the table legs and will having casters on the legs compromise the operation of the tables at all. The shop floor is dead level, has to be with the machine tools and the shop is climate controlled as well.
I really at this point don’t want to put up an addition just for the machine. Building costs are through the roof as it is and an addition would entail not only the physical aspect but additional wiring and possibly a larger heat and air conditioning unit.
