Nice idea! Those wire racks are a dime a dozen, and it's kind of nice to not have to build or hack anything - it can go back to being a regular wire shelving rack between brews, or if you decide you don't need it.

I hold the base of my crusher on the bucket with one hand and operate the drill with the other. Haven't had any stability issues yet, especially once i get a few pounds of grain into the bucket.
I use a relatively heavy corded drill for my BC and I have stability issues before I get several pounds of grain milled - and even then the whole mill can topple off the bucket when the hopper isn't full and my back is turned. No, it's not tough to hold onto it, and if you measure out all your grain before milling (or have an assistant) then it's no big deal, but I can see some appeal to having it be more idiot-proof.
