    Default /Or For Free: Used large Brake Drums

    Looking for a pair of used large brake drums from a box truck/semi to use as bases for pedestals for a vise and a grinder/polisher. The bigger and heavier the better (to a point)

    Ive seen alot of people just use steel wheels for this. Not sure it would work with your application, but its a thought.

    I may have to resort to that.

    Was thinking the same thing as I've seen others do this with old semi rims.

    You can also go to just about any semi repair shop who will have rims too far gone to have repainted that they would probably sell you for scrap price.

    Yeah, I might do that. I'm not in a huge hurry, though, so I'll hold out for drums since they're a smaller diameter and a similar weight. A guy I work with that does side work on semis just scrapped a half dozen of them a week before I asked him.
