« Part 2: Previously Ugh.... now Done... Part 3 of Cleaning series Part 4: Preparing for phase II »

The past couple of afternoons I put in a 220 plug for the soon to be obtained Sawstop. I also put in a dust collection pipe and duct for the saw. All my other tools are connected to a collector but my table saw never was as it was across the room. The base was enclosed with a door for clean-out. Since the Sawstop has a port beneath it I ran new piping today.
Here’s a section of it installed. Notice the hangers I made.

My hangers are made by cutting a trough down the center of a section of 2×4 and angle the ends of it. A square of 3/4” plywood is cut and a 4 1/2” hole is cut in it.

A small hole is drilled into both parts and a nail is inserted to hold them together

The base part is screwed to the wall or ceiling, the plywood inserted over the pipe and when putting it up all is needed is the insertion of a nail to hold it making installing it fairly easy for one person. Go back and check out the first picture to see that they are decent looking and very secure. It’s easy if making a bunch at a time.
