    That is a lot of money for a table, but if you want it I say get it and enjoy it!

    Definitely expensive , but it seems that it will last forever. I would probably end up spending that much on 3 wooden tables in the time that this one will last .

    That's a nice table, with the wood table horror stories that have been posted, you will have peace of mind with a metal table.

  • If you decide to get it, don't leave the DFMT or similar object on the table.

    Just called and tried to go direct .
    They have Canadian distribution now so that won't happen .
    Also they quoted me $1900 for the 48 inch table
    You got a great deal

    Our large reside in a Southern Speciality Table.  Going into its third summer never have had a problem.  Got a great deal after the last Texas eggiest.  They had used it as a demo table it for 4 egg fest and I purchased for 1/2 off.  Has held up well with no problems. Would not hesitate to order another or the Challenger.

    Note I use both the pavers and the feet and never felt any heat transfer down to the bottom drawer.

    I am getting a nest and mates for my XL tomorrow. Poor thing has been sitting in its table in the garage for a couple months in our new house which doesn't have a fence yet. Congrats on the table that thing looks nice.
  • jllbmsjllbms Posts: 371
    Yep. I would if I could. I may regret not pulling the trigger on $1200 stainless table, but I'm not in too deep with the nest and SS work table.

    I absolutely love my table but, by no means could I have imagined they be that expensive even for ALL SS.

    Thanks a big one for sure. Looks nice but I'm sure they are charging a big price...
  • NPHuskerFLNPHuskerFL Posts: 14,498
    If you have some patience and a little searching you could likely find an existing prep table for sale that with a lil spit shine and a skilled welder to modify you could have what you want for about an 1/8-1/4 of that $$$. FWIW

    Meaning while searching you may not find the "right" table right away. It may take some time to locate one with the dimensions etc you are seeking. Patience.
