There are some things I like to grind using the Veritas tool rest and some things that are better with the Wolverine…this is my solution. I have a small shop, so I like things to be portable and easily stored. I mounted my grinder and Wolverine bases to this base with a cleat, so that I can clamp it to my workbench in my vise. To accommodate the Veritas, I added some t-track in front of the grinder. Works like a charm!

I like that. I just got a bench grinder a few days ago and will have to make something like that.

That is a great idea to add the cleat.
I just bought the same grinder last week, and use the wolverine system for my lathe tools. I was trying to figure out where to put it in my small shop, and would like to keep it portable. Using the front vise on my bench will work out perfectly.
Thanks.
