I've had a plan to mount everything on plates with 2" square tubing that can fit into various stands and fixtures (including the stake pockets on my trailer) so I came up with this. (See pictures)
All the material is salvaged from what was laying around. I'm happy with the way it turned out, now the plan is to build a heavy base and mount my bench grinders on similar plates.
looks pretty good from here... I did something similar, but to where they will mount to my welding table and to a place on my Gantry... it is nice to be able to remove and change vise grinders and benders, like that. for being in use or just out of the way...

Nice Job. Rusty...
