    I've been meaning to pick up a screw jack and welding either a nut or socket to it to use it with a ratchet or with my 3/8" impact. They are pretty awesome when your building something and need to level it or set pinion angle on an axle.
    I like that last idea. As far as the mounting the table and making it removable I think a receiver hitch set up for the welding table would be nice. Then you could weld some mounts on your trailer or whatever and throw the saw in the toolbox for big trips and whatever else you had mounted like a vice.

    Was on the phone with Dave last night and he found portabands on CL for 120-180 when we were talking about it. Might grab one over christmas break and get to work. I have just been slacking lately because I don't want to cut with the angle grinder anymore.

    In atlanta I mounted a vice like that to the table with a reciever hitch. It was pretty damn handy.

    Company I work for makes these pipe horses which the top part is these roller clamps for pipe up to 38". I got two of the upper parts I'm planning to make some horses out of them.

    Also have a hanger for my grinders that's pretty nice. Swag offroad also makes some grinder hangers that are convenient.

    F'n tapatalk won't let me upload ****. I'll post a pic in a sec.

    I need a swag gift card haha. I want a few things they sell. Love their clutter catcher, but once I get my torches up again might just make something like this.

    Grinder rack. Just laying on lip of the cart for now but I'll eventually mount it somewhere.

    Older air tool rack that I'm about to cut and make room for a 4" grinder and leave at work. Air tool racks are awesome if you use air tools, a lot easier to find then having them laying around

    I've also recently acquired about 5' of acme rod I'd like to build something with, pipestand maybe but it's not that burly enough I don't think to put much weight on
