Relating to an earlier post on another topic, I have had bad experiences
with my F250's brakes. The good news is the wasted rotors make nice
heavy bases for different kinds of tool stands, including a grinder. I
welded a plate to the bottom of a 2x3 inch tube and drilled holes in
that plate to bolt to the rotor. Another plate welded to the top of the
tube serves as a base for the grinder. The heft of the rotor keeps it
firmly planted, easy to stand on for more stability if needed, and easy
to move around.
I made a similar one to hold a mailbox to win the war against the city
plows. It falls down, I stand it up. A greatwinter survivor.
