Just finished this stand for my slow-speed grinder and Oneway sharpening jig. The stand is on wheels and is very stable.

I like it. Wish I had floor space and could get my grinder off the crowded bench.
Is the top big enough to prevent stepping on the base when walking up to the grinder?

The top and the bottom are the same size, but there isn’t an issue of hitting the base when using the grinder. I wanted to keep the entire stand as small as possible without sacrificing stability.

I like it, what casters did you use? I assume they lock.

The casters were purchased from Home Depot. Both the wheel and the swivel locks on all four casters. I wasn’t convinced that the casters are necessary since the stand and grinder are not that heavy, but I am glad that I used casters since it makes it much easier to roll over to my lathe when I am working on a project, and then roll back to storage when I am done.

I really like it. Mine is on a stand that was given to me that is based on an old tire & rim with a piece of 1/4” square metal stock. The tire & rim take up too much floor space and I’m always kicking the tire when I use the grinder. Can you give me the dimensions for a cut list?

Josh,
I like your stand. I was going to mount mine on the workbench however I like your idea.
