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.
