Easy to make Vacuum Hose Holder

I am always trying to find ways to keep my shop clean and control the
dust, so I came up with this idea. A vacuum hose holder with magnets that
can be usrd for machines with metal tops and with it’s large base can be clamped
on a workbench. I made something similar a while back but I find this one is easier
to set up and move around.

Nicely done! I made this holder for a 4” hose; I couldn’t get away with just gluing/screwing rare earth magnets because of the weight of the hose, so I used switchable magnets from Harbor Freight.

You are off to a good start, although I like redneck versions!

The magnets I used are from Lee Valley and they claim that the 1” size magnet will lift a 30 lb block of steel. I use two so that will work fine for my project. I also have the switchable magnets and they are strong as well. I am glad it works for you, your design is interesting.
