I'm not sure if our rotors are a large enough diameter or heavy enough,
but I've been in quite a few independant shops that have used them as
bases for stands for assorted shop equipment.

Weld a length of pipe to the rotor and a piece of steel to the other
end, and you have a great stand for a bench grinder.  Use a shorter
piece of pipe and some angle iron instead of sheet steel and you have a
homemade jack stand or third hand to help install that exhaust pipe.
