I recently purchased an 8” slow speed grinder and a wolverine one-way sharpening clone.
I am working on mounting it to a plywood base that I can clamp to my bench when I use the grinder. The instructions that came with the one-way clone did not say anything about removing the rubber feet from the grinder, but I saw another set of instructions on the Internet that specifically says to remove the feet. My thought is to leave the feet and lag screw the grinder through the 3/4” spacer into the plywood base and if there is much vibration then add a layer of rubber to the bottom of the base.
So, my questions are:
1. Do you think the rubber feet should be removed from the grinder?
2. How do you attach the grinder to the 3/4” thick spacer to the base?
3. When I finish the assembly I am planning on spraying it with Minwax Polycrylic water based finish. Will this finish hold up to the sparks coming off the grinding wheels?
Thanks in Advance for your replies.
