    has anyone made a rest that bolts to the grinder?

    Pics would be god I have bent the thin crappy ones up and was thinking to make something a bit more sturdier, although the guard they bolt to is thin and bent too!

    Make a base for the rests and mount the grinder to the base.

    It does. All mounted to 18mm ply.

    Can move from rough to fine without having to set another rest.
    Kept meaning to improve it but works fine as is.

    One of 3 bench grinders.

    I only have one, its a bit rubbish..
    Made this up so it bolts to the wall and clamps in place via the 2 threaded L screws into the wood block cutout, some rubber strips and does not vibrate at all.
    The wood block clamps up nicely in the vices and also the workmate when doing v dirty stuff outside.

    That's got me thinking - I have bits of the chassis of an electric recliner chair lying about, just waiting for a chance to be useful......:whistle:
