Re: New Old Baldor Buffer

And don't forget that the base has external flanges with bolt holes which are visible in your photo so that you can bolt it down, they aren't there just for aesthetics :D

Thanks for another guess.

I guess someone who doesn't know their buffer should be bolted down shouldn't be using one :mrgreen:

Because the air temperature in the engine compartment is only a couple of degrees from the water temperature outside.
Such a setup would have no benefit.
