What grid pattern should I get for my welding table?

Fixture welding tables are a massive timesaver. You no longer need to waste time tacking work pieces to your welding top or making jigs! But how does this all work? The holes allow your table to be transformed in a multitude of ways, including the use of extenders, right angle fixtures, flat stops, round V groove supports and more.

Your flexibility and versatility opens up in terms of how you use your table and how you can clamp your work pieces.

All of our tables offer the same levels of micrometer precision making alignment of your fixtures easy:

Both options use our 28mm diameter holes, but the difference is in the hole centers:

Hole Distance: ±0.05mm
Hole Diameter: ±0.05mm

So now it’s a choice of choosing what grid pattern that is right for you.

K16 Welding Table Grid Pattern

If you’re looking to buy one of our K16 welding tables, all you need to know is the holes are 16mm diameter and positioned at 50mm centers. For the hobby welder or many professionals, with our versatile range of accessories this will be all you need. Before you know it, you’ll be clamping your work pieces however you want in record time.

Diagonal: 50mm hole centers

So if you’re buying a K28 table, which option should you go for? It really comes down to flexibility and options with the table accessories. The Diagonal option (with 50mm centers) allows for more precision with clamping/fixture positioning since they can be positioned closer together and at a 45 degree angle to other holes.

The cost for the Diagonal grid option ranges from $200 – $550 (excluding GST) depending on size of table. If flexibility and versatility are important to you, then this is a small price to pay.

Alex - KO Welding Tables Owner
AlexKO Welding Tables – Owner

Born and raised in Ocean Grove, Victoria, I’ve always loved working with my hands. During High School, welding became my passion. For over a decade, I’ve been at the heart of the welding industry, mastering techniques from structural steel to custom fabrication. My expertise led to the creation of “KO Welding Supplies” in 2018, a trusted supplier for welders and fabricators across Australia and New Zealand.

Recognising the need for a superior welding table, in 2021 I innovatively tested and launched the KO Welding table. Its precision and adaptability surpassed anything I’d used before. Drawing from extensive feedback, we realised one-size-fits-all wouldn’t work. Thus, koweldingtables.com.au was born, offering customisable, top-quality welding tables with transparent pricing.

Today, we’re reshaping the fabricator’s experience, one tailored solution at a time. You can read more about my experience here.
