Bench top wire cutters

I bought a bolt cutter with the intention of turning it into a table top wire cutter.
I took some 1.5″ x 3/16″ mild.steel scrap and fabricated a base plate.
After the base plate was complete. I welded the bolt cutters directly to the plate then screwed the whole assembly down onto my workbench with the holes I drilled out when making the baseplate. 
Now wire and chain up to 1/2″ can be easily and accurately cut to any size.
Here’s a few pics and a video I took.
