Today, I built a rolling stand for my bench grinder and belt sander with pieces I had laying around the shop.

Nice! Can you lock the wheels somehow? Or have other means to stop it from rolling away with some heavy grinding, etc?
Thanks!
I will once I get some locking casters for it. I threw on some cheap plastic casters I had for now just so I can move it around.

Scored these at an estate sale; I have no specific need for plastic bar at present, but the deal was too good to pass up.
56' of 1 1/2" Lexan
8' of 2" glass-filled PTFE
5' of 2 1/4" PTFE
3' of 3/4" PTFE
12' of 7/8" PTFE
Most suppliers list the 1 1/2" Lexan @ $28/ft, and 2 1/4" PTFE @ $100/ft.
Paid $55 for the whole pile.

Next, Miller 130 wire feed, 1 ton folding shop crane, Craftsman 6" Horizontal Bandsaw, (currently down awaiting repair machining task) and the 9x20 Enco lathe that the 12x36 replaced. (which is now for sale, ad posted later tonight)
Great setup! We had one of those Craftsman band saws in my Dad's hardware store. It replaced an electric hacksaw I don't remember seeing used. We cut steel up to 3x3/8 angle for 20+ years . I drug it out a couple of years ago to cut the steel for my bridge project. Slow but steady.
