I'm reminded of a table someone provided a link to, a couple months ago,
that incorporated a brakedrum in the design...
And, "hired man" is better than "slave"... unless you like to kick
yours, or want to sell it. :)

I've got about 3 of these things, in different sizes. I'd be absolutely
lost without them. Making your own with a nice heavy casting at the
base (brake drum is great) is much better than anything lightweight you
While you've got the welder out though, put a T bar handle on that
thumbscrew, not just an oval.
When on the farm we had a number of these, Dad called the "Mates".
Instead of brake drums on the base we used plough disks.
Thinking back, plough disks where indispensable. They made BBQ's,Bases
for all types of contraptions, chook feeders, dairy heaters etc.
