I modified the plans from ShopNotes
http://www.shopnotes.com/plans/shop-vacuum-station/ to build this for my garage/shop.
The station is made of 3/4” ply on 3” casters. The centre holds the vacuum wand, broom and dustpan. The other accessories fit right onto the base of my Ridgid vacuum. The handle at the top makes it easy to wheel around. The hose that came with the dust deputy is too short, so I’ll be shopping for a longer hose and a variety of connectors so that I can easily connect to my bandsaw, table saw, router table and CMS.
The cut-outs were a bit of a challenge and were done with my jigsaw. While I had this half done before my bandsaw arrived, I still got to use my new Rikon 10-325 for some of the cuts.
While my shop will always be ‘under development’, everything is now mobile. My goal for my next project is to make something NOT shop related.
-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.
