Wet/dry vac rack reins in wandering attachments
One of the most valuable tools in my shop is the wet/dry vacuum. However, like lost socks in a dryer, I had a serious problem keeping track of the various attachments. My solution was to build the wooden rack shown below to provide a stable home for the wandering attachments.I cut the curved rack parts for my 1 1⁄4"-diameter vacuum accessories from scraps of 2x4; for 2 1⁄2" accessories, you may need to go with 2x6 stock. (Thearc of your vac canister also figures in here, too.) Your best bet is to create a cardboard template to fit the contours of your canister. After assembly, secure the rack to the vac with stretch cords attached to the dowel rods.—Charles Beach, Morganton, N.C.
