    Aluminium cuts on my bandsaw just as easy as hard wood, it's no problem to work with in that respect, it goes a bit like chewing gum when you start machining it though, at least the way I machine it

    LOL..

    Yer we do have the kit to cut Ali no problems. Unless bolting this stiff together is good enough then its the welding and joining that going to be the problem.

    I can't imagine you would need to weld the aluminium but that's no bother too, take a look at these;

    gobo why not just go the steel route,i could lend you a 210 amp stick welder and auto mask..im local so could drop it off and get you started welding bits within minutes
    you wont need to be a coded welder to make a table.im not great at it but managed to make this with the same welder.

    Wow, thanks for the offer. I may just take you up on that some time. I think thats just a little beyond me at present.

    Your machine looks great BTW! What do you cut?
