Heavy duty grinder stand
« on: March 19, 2022, 07:58:02 AM »
Ths thing is a monster, made by Jet, tips the scale at 80lbs.

I've had the grinder for some time now. The way I had it mounted, was not allowing me to use the vacuum port on the rear.

 I would roll it outside to use it and was ok. With a wild hair and some spare cash, went looking for the stand.

 FWIW:
Here is what I found, with a tip for anyone interested

1 found @ AMAZON
2 can be had for a 100$ discount
3 apply for the AMX AMAZON business cc
4 something I will never use btw
5 shipped from Tenn arrived the next day, but I live in GA so that's not a given

I agree, good looking setup.  Are you going to anchor it to the floor?

No need to the mass supports itself, I don't push the work. Let the wheels do the work, ruffly 150lbs sitting there.

Its all cast, except for the upright.

Thats tough to beat at a price like that!

I built one from a truck wheel, and tubing. My main complaint with most pre made grinder stands is they are too low.

I capped the end of the upright off and stuffed it full of steel swarf and dry sand, I intend to pour the wheel full of cement, but it turned out heavy enough.

LMAO, I bet it is  :)  Being too low was a thought that crossed my mind. Especially when I lifted the upright out of the box.

The contour of the legs and the grinder itself ended up good, I'm 5/11 and some change. Standing in front of the machine my arms are at a 90 to the platen.
