Ghetto buffing station

I found a small grinder for $2 at a garage sale last year that I just couldn't pass up. Earlier this spring, I got the parts to make my grinder in to a buffer for jewelry and now I am using it wherever I find room. Hence "the ghetto buffer". Usually I'm on this chair in my kitchen. It doesn't work so well, though, since it bounces around and I end up using one hand to hold the machine in place while the other hand is holding and buffing the jewelry.

That's not so safe. So. Today I will be mounting this .... somewhere sturdy. And possibly making a backsplash type shield to stop the flying bits from escaping all over the room.
