This is the first project I have posted here on LJ. This is the setup I came up with for my Dust Deputy. I wanted as small a footprint that I could get, so stacking the DD on top of the vacuum made sense to me. I also wanted the stand to be all inclusive and hold the vac tools and extensions, so I mounted a toolholder I had saved from an old vac on the back of the setup. I also made a rack to hold the extensions.
I cut a hole in the back of the stand for the hose of the vac could be easily removed and reattached. To keep the hose running from the DD to the vac from collapsing I attached an extension at the top of the back so the hose was supported. A power strip was added so the vac would be controlled at the top of the stand. A hook was added to hold the front hose and power strip cord when not in use. A chain was attached to the front middle shelf to help move the stand around the shop.
I know some of you are wondering what that round disc is attached to the bottom. My very smart son-in-law came up with the idea of filling a old brake disk (this one is off of an old Volvo) with concrete, drill through the lug holes and mount it on the bottom of this stand as a counter weight to offset the height of the stand. It works great, in fact, the whole setup works great.
Let me know what you think.
