My first post. Like most of us, room is at a premium in my home workshop. I came up with this solution that I wanted to share.
I started with a stand on a rolling base. I attached a piece of hard maple with a frame to the top. I then made bases for my smaller equipment and mounted rails on the bottom that fit inside the frame on the table. (The only exception was the router table. On that one, the rails on the router base slip on the outside of the rails on the base.)
I picked up a Delta portable dust collector for $80.00 on Craig’s list and added a 4 inch to 2 1/2 inch reducer. I then added a shop vacuum hose with a three piece adapter kit. As the pictures show, it hooks up to all the portable tools.
Since the dust collector is on the moveable base, it I move it an hook it up to the band saw, the table saw and the miter saw.
When I retire, I would like to have a fully outfitted shop, but for now, this solution works well in my garage.
Thanks for looking.
