I inherited an old but unused casting (centrifugal, broken-arm type)
machine. It came with just about everything, including a table built
of 2x4s and plywood. The safety wall around it was pretty lame
though, so I bought a metal wash tub (27" diameter) to replace it.
The table it’s on will not do though, it is too lightweight and isn’t
bolted down to anything.
I don’t have room in my workshop to bring it indoors and mount on a
wall-stabilized bench, so it’s outside on a covered patio. I don’t
want to drill into a concrete block wall of a house I’m trying to
I’m pretty handy, so I’m thinking of making a better base for it.
Any advice on working height, type of base, type and mass of the
object(s) used to keep it from dancing around the patio?
thanks very much,
