    This is why a good weld bench should have a roll-out wheel, bonus points for a torch rest.

    But if the work is directly grounded I don't see how there could be any damage?

    No interest in felling trees, mainly because I don't own any.

    Set your table saw to 45 deg then rip a 2x4 down the middle. Screw it to the wall, a bench, whatever....hang the wheels off it.

    Use wood because it's cheap and won't scratch anything.

    I'll go one size smaller, I'm working to remove a 1/16" roll pin from a blind hole. The part is expensive and rare, it's worth my time to remove it.

    Have there been any developments in this arena?
