Clamp Storage: Dust Collector Not Included

I have a small shop with a large dust collector turned clamp rack and storage center. Instead of positioning the collector off in a corner I left it in the middle of the room close to my large machines. I only have one long conduit and the rest are all short runs. Essentially I have a race track around my table saw, bandsaw, jointer, planer, and dust collector. The race track is bordered by swim lanes separating assembly and work tables, storage, Festool items, and a miter saw station.

The side panels are connected to the dust collector’s frame with “u” pipe fasteners and the two sides are connected with a back panel and top shelf which both allow additional storage. The filter has room to breathe and I can easily reach the crank to clean the filter.

We need to do everything possible to help our lungs out.

Yeah, I’ve become a connoisseur of grabbers. I’ve got them all over. And magnet pick ups too. :)
