I bolted mine to a 1/4" steel plate. Same with the band saw. I can move them but they won't tip over.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Bolt your heavy vise to a big piece of 2X12 or 3X12. You can move it to where you need to use it, or c-clamp it down to your bench when you need it there. You'll find it's seldom used inside the shop.

Great find for $10.

With a drill press - typically - most of the work is left to right of the tool. It's not very likely that you will have deep set to a project that you cannot set it up left or right. I anchored mine with 2 (two) 1/2 inch by 6 inch anchor bolts set into the slab. Just drill and pound them in - they have never given me a problem in 7 years of moderate use.

Thanks so much for replying guys. Looks like two good options. Not sure which way I'll go. I like bolting it down and have the anchors to do it. But, I also like the option to put a plate on it so I can move it if I need to. Until I get this figured out, I may just bolt a safety chain to the drill and connect it to the wall so if it does tip it can't fall completely over. I sure do not want me or anybody else to get hurt.
Thanks again,
Joe
