    Default Marking out table

    I know it's broken and stupidly priced but what a pretty table, Victorian or Edwardian?
    I have a Webster Bennett with a single tee-slot, the chess board layout must be a bit of a nuisance sometimes?

    Overpriced? Think about what it would cost to make a duplicate of equal quality and sophistication !!!

    I'm guessing that the side slots are specified to be perpendicular to the top, within some tolerance, and likewise the ends are specified to be at a right angle to the sides, etc.

    A scraper's challenge, to say the least!

    That's not like any other marking out table I've ever worked on. Having so many tee slots isn't an advantage when you're marking out.

    Regards Tyrone.

    The vendor is a scrappy , Ive spoken to him before and he hates to destroy good stuff. Unfortunately he over values things so its impossible to buy

    I am not so sure ,big T slotted tables are expensive things ,fabricators buy them.

    It is a beauty ,I would say it is more likely to be used as a test rig rather than a marking out tabe ,where I used to work they had quite a few similar things which they would bolt parts of Turbine generators and similar such mechanical things like train motors and gearboxes ,the T slots were vital to tie everything down while tests were performed ,this Daimler table was probably used for erecting engines ready for test. Certainly wants saving ,a piece of history.

    In that case it's not a marking out table then. The way things are in the UK I can only see a fabrication shop buying it to weld on.

    Regards Tyrone.

    Regardless of what it was originally used for, or the fact that I would have few uses for it, like above, if it were anywhere near me I would gladly pay that price. What a find!

    I might find out what the Daimler link is, just out of curiosity of course
    Perhaps it was a Daimler they dropped on the corner....

    Thats £ not $

    When a bae/marconi factory near me closed in the early 2000's the local scrappy(he cleared it) was offering 10x5 and 16x8 grade a tables for £800 to £1000. Naturally the only takers were light fabrication firms who make gates and the like.
    At the time I had a tiny 1000sq ft workshop and couldn't justify it or llift anything that big onto it

    I worked at a place that had fallen on hard times and the work force had shrunk considerably. They had top class marking out/inspection tables all over the place. Labourers were using some them for painting machinery on and they had paint all over them. Very sad.

    Regards Tyrone.
