Iirration is the real mother of invention. I have a lot of stationary equipment stuffed in a large, detached garage work shop. The shop only has two 15 amp outlets, one on the back wall, the other on the ceiling for the garage door opener. I used to crawl around on the floor plugging and unpluggings tools in a tangle of heavy power cords. “What the hell doz zat goto??”
Enter my unpatented PowerWacker! (Info-mercial moment!!!) Now, power is conveniently fed from the celing into the middle of my L-shaped arrangement of stationery tools. I can move from TS, to BS, CMS, Planer, etc. without fighting the tangle. And my vac-automator isn’t getting kicked around on the floor. Special features? Pull the handle up and it’s easy to move. Push it down and the entire building explodes. Good enough for now, makes me laugh. I will adequately wire the garage when it isn’t the dead of summer and causing the collapse of the Midwest’s power grid will be less disruptive.
