The Fabricators best friend

It's said that necessity is the mother of invention, as Toolmakers, we found ourselves in need of a quick accurate way to produce large fireplace grates with multiple bent and welded parts. Each grate had 5 tangs made of 3/4" square steel bent at 60 degrees in the back, and 45 degrees in the front. Not being welders we did not have the many tools for producing such parts which resulted in the need for a table that can be used for bending and welding. As a result, what would become the Fab Pro Layout table solved our problem. Its unique geometric pattern gave us numerous angular possibilities for welding, bending and cutting. The clever clamping system was simple and fast, making part changes quick and easy. We continue to use the table today for custom machine frame building, and work we would never have accepted before.
