Strong Hand Tools Nomad Welding Table with MagSpring Clamp and Mini Magnet Twin Pack, Model# TS3020FK
Seems solidly built
Ordered this a while ago, and just got around to assembling it yesterday. Assembly directions were clear (for the most part). Outer box and one hardware package inside appeared to have already been opened, but all parts were complete. Fasteners were of good quality, and appropriate to the design (some "assembly required" items I've purchased had junk fasteners, which I just threw out and replace with better quality/size for the application. That was not needed here.)
I've only used this for one relatively lightweight project so far, but it seems sturdy enough for most of my needs. I would not be using a small folding table for a large project anyway.
Bought on sale. Good value for the money. Noticeably better quality than the knock-off a friend purchased from another company.

The stand is adequately sturdy and a good concept. However, the top is definitely not flat. Mine is out by over 1/8", approaching 1/4" inch across the diagonal in the middle and one corner is over 1/4" out. That makes fabricating something flat a challenge. That is after taking care to make sure that the table is not warped after adjusting height or angle. One can easily warp the table if care is not exercised in adjusting the angle after folding the table. I've been thinking of ways to add a flat top to the stand and am considering a square tube frame (welded on the concrete floor to ensure it is flat) with a 12 gauge top tacked to the flat frame. I'll lose the convenience of the slots, but given the dip in the middle, those slots aren't doing me any favors.

Baught this welding table for smaller projects where I have limited room and cannot set up a full size welding table. The mobility, adjustable height tilting top and slotted tabletop for clamping work in place all work well and have proven very useful. Come with 2 mini magnets that I really haven't used, but the small spring clamp is very useful. Recommend buying at least 1 extra spring clamp right away.

Bought this table for my garage and am extremely pleased with it. Assembly was a snap and the table is sturdy, adjustable, and not too heavy or clumsy to move around.
With the additional clamp and magnets, welding is easy and enjoyable.

Nice Solid Table!
Very pleased with this table...solid, compact, and adjustable.
Went together in about an hour and is perfect for weekend welding projects or in areas where space is limited. The side rails are a nice option that make squaring your projects easy.
Top is heavier gauge than I expected and I'm sure will hold up to years of abuse. Nice that they offer a replacement top if you need it.
Really like the clamps and magnets Stronghold makes as they are far superior to the cheapo ones I have used in the past!

The table is just what I needed to begin welding. My only complaint is the packaging which was partially opened when it was delivered and when I did an inventory of the parts I found that only one part was missing. Still waiting to hear from Northern for the replacment part. Otherwise I'm satisfied with the product self. Instruction could be better.

Well Built and Made for Welding
This table is well built, sturdy, and designed for welding, as the top tilts, and it has some other features that make it easy to use clamps and magnets, which come with it. I gave it 4 stars because it is in my garage and the painted supports are already rusting,. The paint just peeled off. Otherwise, it is a fantastic welding table.

Nomad Welding Table
I have OXY welded with this table, used it as a workbench for many indoor and outdoor projects, and a coffee table while basking in the sun in my driveway. I left it sit against the house for 3-mos during the winter and the only thing that showed any adverse exposure were the retainer key rings on the height adjustment pins rusted.
I folds, transports easily, adjusts for uneven environs, and it's strong.

Great hobby welding table for small shop
This table by no means is meant for large scale projects but for the person working on smaller projects, within minimal shop space this table is perfect.
The slats throughout the table are perfect for situating clamps to hold your work piece to the table. I guess they could also be used to “vent” when performing cutting applications but since I don’t use a cutting torch I can’t speak to that.
Table seems to have good conductivity, and adjustability.
When collapsed for storage the footprint takes up minimal space. Adjustable height is a plus for those that prefer to weld standing or sitting.
For the hobby welder with minimal space this is a must have!

1) The assembly instructions are weak but any DIY'er can muddle through it.
2) I was happy with everything (overall design, features, portability, etc) EXCEPT the tabletops are NOT FLAT! The metal is too thin and can be twisted very easily. This makes no sense to me why they used such thin metal. Another 32nd on the table top or perhaps a 1/16th around the edges would have been much better.
