Build Your Own Vibrating Table

Building your own vibrating table can save you hundreds of dollars!  The purpose of a vibrating table for concrete is to eliminate air bubbles and primarily help achieve a professional smooth finish.  This blog post will show you how to make your own vibrating table for around $250 .

Having a vibrating table for larger heavier projects such as (baluster railings and columns), can really help ensure that your pieces consistently have a professional finish.

How will this work for you??

The motor that I recommend will sufficiently vibrate between 150-350 lbs of concrete per application.

You can apply a dimmer switch to control the speed for lighter projects below 150 lbs.

For  large concrete projects above 400 lbs. add another motor (possibly to a larger table.)  I hope this concept is helpful for some of you!  I know it is a great option for a lot of people who do not want to spend a lot of money on a vibrating table.

 

Supplies:

♦   Mountable Vibrating Motor  —   ( the orange one in the picture is different than the link.  We sell both however the one in the link is more powerful and less expensive.) History Stones offers a one year warranty and free shipping on this motor.

♦    Plywood–  2x 2ft or 3x3ft

♦   Hardware-  Carriage bolts, washers, and wing nuts.

♦   Tire–  Any standard size tire

 

Instructions:

 

Simply attach the tire to the plywood with the carriage bolts and mount the motor in the center of the tire.  Create a hole in the side of the tire so you can pass the motor power cord through.
