    I have one just like you pictured. I will have to say that it took a LOT of modification to make it work correctly. It now serves my purposes just fine.

    As to the solution to your problem : Put it in a corner, but make sure you have it far enough from the wall to clear your largest tires. Once in a while, I have to reposition the tire on the machine to finish what I'm doing, but I usually don't have to.

    Unfortunately I don't have the room to do that. Thus, my dilemma. My shop is so crowded that I don't have room to do much work. If I had room to "put it in a corner" I could just leave it where it is. I'm desperately trying to clear some space and one of the solutions is to get this thing off of the pallet it's on now and have it available when/if needed. In storage this thing won't take up any valuable floor space. I can store it on a shelf without losing that floor space I speak of.
     
  7. I prefer the glue in style of anchors. We use them in rock climbing and I have retrofitted them to an existing floor. There is no risk of blowing out the hole like with a mechanical fastner. Fastenal and other industrial places should have them.

    Any decent hardware store will have them in the mini hardware drawers.

    1 did not read all the responses but use a commercial insert like the pictured hilti it expands when you thread into it, you drill the hole with a concrete bit and and make it a little snug and push the insert in the hole with the bolt attached and get it tight before you take it out to attach the stand..when you take it out just put a carriage bolt in the hole when you are not using it. the insert is used for attaching hangers for anything in concrete construction.this might help???

  11. I used Redheads when I mounted my winch in the floor to pull in non runners, I just use the shop vac over them when I want to bolt the winch in.

    What flatford said^^^. I have a bunch of those set in my floor. When I need to use 'em I just blow all the crap out of 'em with compressed air and thread a bolt in.
