Good table for 2 enclosures next to each other

Hello,

I just ordered a MK4 with the enclosure and I already have an Mk3s+ without an enclosure. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good tables that would support both printers next to each other. I thought about getting the trusty IKEA BROR but it is only 850mm across which won't fit 2. 

The enclosure is 530mm across, so I'd need at least 1060mm or preferably more to comfortably fit 2 next to each other. 

Does anyone have good recommendations for a table to host both printers?

I went and bought a Table Desk for my two printers. It is 24in. (610mm) x 54 in. (1372 mm). It is solid as rock. It is wide open underneath for storing whatever you have. 

When my MK3S+ starts moving around  that table does not even move, it is solid as a rock. This is just a suggestion, but I am glad i have it.

I have 2 IKEA tables next to each other.  I think you can get a version of the Sorcerer 3D enclosure that shares a panel between the two enclosures.

Don't really need the enclosure, although I wouldn't mind one just to keep the printer from getting dusty!!!

I see this is on sale right now and I’m debating on grabbing this because it looks sturdy and is long enough. The only downside is the printer control will hang off. A small added bonus are the drawers for storing misc things.

Also, take a look at this table.

Metal under frame , with chipboard table top.

Size is perfect for two enclosures with the LCD on the outside.

I use Seville Classics UltraGraphite workbenches 4 x 2 feet in size for my printers, 2 LACK enclosures side by side. They're expensive but the most solid thing I've seen.

Consider the depth as well as the width. The enclosure is 25" deep, not counting the control panel (if you mount that outside). Curious how well they sit on a 24" deep desk, as the feet for the enclosure are set back slightly.

Might that be Seville Classics UltraHD workbenches?  I don't see an UltraGraphite offering on their web site.

I do come across some with Graphite in the name.

The name UltraGraphite has now probably become UltraHD.

Manufacturers may change names to generate new sales that way.

When I do a search with UltraGraphite workbench I frequently come across the type with the two drawers on Amazon.

@Rene - looks like Graphite is the name for the color of the legs.  I like that better than the brushed steel finish on the Seville Classics roll-around tool boxes that I have.

Quite possible. All I can say, I have four Seville Classic workbenches (with and without pegboards), and they are all super high quality.

I didn’t post it originally but I’d also prefer a shelf above the table so I can put my Repbox up there and feed the filament down. Apartment living is tough because I cannot do much room customizing so I need to use tables and benches wisely to fit my space.

I got myself one of these, I have some rubber matting underneath my printer to prevent vibrating, I have my printer on the second hollow shell, on the shelf above the I have some filament boxes that allows me to keep two colours in each one & I feed them down through the gap directly above my printer so when I want to chop and change mid print I just cut the filament that's going in wait for the printer say that it's out of filament before feeding on a new colour. All the other shelves are good for storing other filaments that are still brand-new & your tools & whatever else. Mine is also on wheels though it's movable very rigid solid frame
