    Vac Nozzle Storage

    I've had some long days (and therefor short evenings in the shop) lately. Not having time to get into anything serious, I have started a list of "that's the last straw" items. We all have those cords or hoses we constantly bump into, the small item we can't find, etc.

    I took care of the BS fence and such on another thread. This time I was digging for the right vacuum hose end . . . again . . . Checked my list; sure enough, that's one of the things that I have just about had it with.

    Grab a 2 x 4.
    Joint, plane and rip it.
    Set up the circle jig (easy with this little storage/setting jig).

    Cut a couple rings and screw on some old spray can lids dug outta the recycle bin.

    That's a great idea, Glenn. Mine are all in the side compartment of the vac. I have to take them all out to dump the canister though, and it's a hassle.
