    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 !!

    No problem build away.

    Most of the pipe guys who have to grab a grinder a go, merely cut out a plate kinda like a reversed "m" Grinder wheel slides in holding the grinder in place and pops out for easy use.

    I don't have a hand grinder stand but it sounds like a cool idea maybe.
    yes FK, I meant a stand for 4-1/2" and 7" disk grinders. Sorry for the confusion. I think I saw one that had like a tripod legs welded to the vertical trunk and a horizontal bar/angle on the top. This way you can just "hook" your grinders on it. I forgot what else they had "added" to that....
    thanks Bob and FK,

    Hand grinder/utility stand

    ok...so I went through some old posts...tried to...couldn't find NOTHING
    Anyone got pics of their hand grinder/utility stands? I think the few that I saw was random, on different threads that had nothing to do with stands...
    thanks again,
    bert
