    Wheel Rims !

    Hey Bob, That's Exactly what I did !

    I had an old Deep Rim, I tacked a small plate across the hole, then welded on a piece of 2"x2" HSS. Vertically for a Post. Then Tacked in a couple of pieces of Rebar, and filled it up with Cement ! When it dried I welded on a piece of plate to bolt my Bench Drill Press !! Now I have a Drill Press on a Stand, Works Great Too !!
