I was drilling a hole to attempt a method of mounting shop vac attachments. Used a hole drill I picked up at Harbor Freight real cheap. The hole saw worked okay… not the best grant you, but okay… the bigger issue was that my drill chuck fell off of its shaft. I was using my Delta bench top drill press and the chuck is a pressed on fitting. I cleaned up the conical shaft and the inside of the chuck to assure real clean… no oil or grease. Went back to drillin’ and it slipped off again. Did that a couple of more times before I got good and aggressive with a light sledge hammer. That seemed to do the trick.
I am happy with the Delta… fine for my small shop. I think the chuck was originally packed in grease, and with use, it lubricated itself off. That, and the 2 inch hole saw did get it in a bind of some kind.
Point being, how do folks store their shop vac hoses and accessories? HELP!!! The snake keeps wrapping around my leg. Surprised that I had a hole saw that fit just right. I’ll attempt some kind of mounting… where I can slip it in and out and the stuff won’t fall over or out. I don’t have much space in my shoppette… http://lumberjocks.com/dustyal/workshop
