Ok, sorry, made you look.
The thing in question is a half-baked idea I had for my shop. Wondering why I haven’t ever seen it done in any of the shop photos/videos I’ve seen.
Basic idea is a hanging multi-purpose “shelf” above the table-saw. I’m thinking I would like to have some strong task lighting hanging down above my TS/router table combo. Would also like to have a hanging air-hose with a blower on it for frequently blowing all the sawdust off. Also want a place to keep all of the pencils/tape/push-blocks/featherboards/digital-angle-thingy/calipers/adjustment-wrench…you get the idea—the dozens of things that wind up cluttering the top of the TS.
I got the notion of combining the task-lighting and air-hose thing with a shelf-thingy.
Problem is I couldn’t decide how high it should be…then it hit me. I have an old 12V winch that has been just taking up space on a shelf for years. Why not over-do this whole thing and have the height easily adjustable with the push of a button?
So, why the heck have I never seen such a beast?
