Shop Tip #269

My home shop is small (18' x 18'), and is it crowded!  There's no way I can wheel my shop vac around, so I switched to a long 1-1/2" hose and I have the vacuum parked square in the middle of the shop.  To avoid tangles and tripping, I hang the hose from a ceiling support.  My hose reaches easily anywhere, and it's always right at hand when I need it.
