This forum has been kinda quiet. Must be everyone is out in the shop working on something. Just wondering what everyone is up to so I might get some ideas on projects. I built a stand for my chopsaw. Got the idea from somebody on this forum but can't remember. It swings out from the wall and locks in place to hold long pices of steel. I fabbed an attatchment point for my come-along on the ceiling. I attatched a 4"x4"x6' angle along the trusses in the rafters. Attatched to that is a bracket with two bolts that protrude through the drywall where I bolted the mounting bracket. It has a big hole in it (3") where a chain or my come-along can attatch to. I'm thinking about fabbing a shield for my vacuum motor so debris can't clog the air intake and cooling intake. Big problem when I back up to a leaf pile and empty the bin. I'd also like to hinge the vacuum motor so it swings out of the way when I go through tight spots. Hoses need some sort of quick release for it to work good. Well, I think the garage is warmed up enough. See ya.
