Thanks.
You get to see the final iterations, only. I never show the fails.

Re: WHAT DID YOU DO IN YOUR SHOP TODAY

I have yet to come up with a pleasing design for a mobile base. I want something that looks vintage appropriate and works with my inverted "fifth-wheel" transport handle. The base of the Sterling grinder is not square, but, more of a parrellegram with curves sides. I will go to The Metal Supermarket on Monday morning. I often get my better ideas when I am looking at a warehouse full of possibilities.
I am an old POS and I really put myself at risk of physical damage when I try to wrestle the 380+ pounds of grinder into submission.
I am expecting a package of replacement parts from Sterling/Macdonough in the mail tomorrow. Cross-border shopping combined with our Canadian dollar buying 0.76 USD can change affordable into "I think I will pass." for some persons.
A person in Michigan contacted me and offered his Lisle 91000 drill grinder. In a return email, I demonstrated how his price more than doubled, to me, with the exchange rate and freight added. When I bring something into Canada from the USA there is always the taxes. If the item or items are transitioning through the USA and not made in USA, there can be an added duty based on origin of content. Vehicles and electric tools may face an inspection.
