A solid cast iron pedestal stand suitable for almost any bench grinder or other lightweight machine. It comprises a three-legged base with securing holes at the end of each foot, a heavy column and a substantial mounting platform some 265mm by 185mm in size. Some of the smaller Axminster grinders will fit directly. For larger g rinders and different brands simply use a thick MDF top sub-base. Height is 810mm.

Acceptable but not universalAs the previous reviewer stated the mounting plate is too small to accommodate a larger (e.g Trade) bench grinder. Rather than attempt to drill extra holes near the edge of the casting am making an adaptor plate from birch ply.

Sturdy but NOT UniversalI bought this stand for an Axminster Trade series bench grinder assuming that it would be designed to marry perfectly. Unfortunately the mounting plate is smaller then the base plate of the grinder. On top of this the fixing down holes on the grinder are further apart than the widest setting on the stands mounting plate. The plate is just about big enough to allow me to re-drill it so that i can bolt the grinder down so i am keeping the stand. The stand is in fact surprisingly sturdy but i do feel that it needs a bigger mounting plate otherwise it should not be classed as 'Universal'. It would also be helpful if either the grinder or the stand were supplied with fixing down bolts, or these bolts were offered by Axminster as an accessory.

Grinder stand just the jobalthough a little shorter the other models this stand is robust and sturdy just the job for attaching the grinder/polisher to.
