Combine table saw and workshop vacuum cleaner: cleaner

Ricc - I blog for you

My table saw is already quite a long time housed on a mobile cart. And although planned for a long time differently, my workshop vacuum cleaner was also somewhere in a corner around. In short, he should finally be housed under the table saw. The height of the teat and the available space proved to be problematic. The teat is seen from the ground, just 5cm smaller than the available space. By that I do not mean the height of the box under the saw, but really from the ground. Simply put it in fell out. The workshop vacuum had to be mounted so that it "floats" just above the ground and remains under the top board. As favorable proved the rubber ring on the sucker, which (really coincidentally) has exactly the right height to hang him on the bottom board and to let the sucker hover so just above the ground.

Of course, I would have preferred to slide my nipple from the front into the already existing opening of the car. Unfortunately the rollers are too tight and the sucker simply does not fit through. So there was nothing left for me to do but use the closed page (it was also scarce).

For this I first had to determine the necessary diameter of the opening. Of course, this is not easy without a large caliper. And those who have no tape measure at hand, just take a twine or cable. This is placed once around, held the end and then measured the length of the twine with the yardstick. So you have the scope and can calculate the exact diameter or radius.

I set this on the cutting circle (self-made) and off I went. Unfortunately, without suction, which is always a hindrance in such work and thus my depth of cut was no longer sufficient.

fits perfectly

If the cutter was well adjusted, there is little rework. However, if everything is milled out from one side, the lower edge must be reworked with the trimming cutter.

Of course, the milled hole alone is not enough. somehow the nipple has to come in as well. For this, the hole must be opened to the side. But this should not be done in full size, the sucker should not migrate by itself back out. However, it should not be too tight, because there is not enough space to insert the nipple from above. So try something and always expand slice by slice. For me it was left and right unfortunately not more than about 1.5 mm, which could stop. Good to see on the second picture under "sawing side panels".

little travel

Even more and I would not have got my nipple in it anymore. There was just not enough room to go up and the angle at which the case got smaller down was just too steep.

Since my saw carriage was once upside down, I put the nipple upside down to see how much freedom of movement I have. That's not much, as you can see in the picture. But if necessary, I would have unscrewed the handle above. That would indeed create much more space, but makes the nipple also unwieldy. So I wanted to avoid it and it was so synonymous.

Saw side panels

The next step was a bit more time consuming. The side board had to be sawn so that the nipple fits in perfectly. However, as much as possible should be stopped, so as not to unnecessarily weaken everything. So I first touched the center line, transferred necessary diameters and topped a little bit. Since I could have probably transferred the dimensions a little more effective but according to my motto: "Anyway, I leave that way now." Finally (yes I was in between when assembling) were still notched out the corners, so that the rubber rim fits through.

But now I could finally grow everything again. And in fact, the nipple fit in. Even though I have to twist it a bit to get past the lid clamps or the suction hose connection. Now I have gained some more space in my workshop. Next, I would like to accommodate all the workshop vacuum cleaner accessories. I would like to have attached a flap at the front and inserted the tubes from above, but unfortunately they are a bit too long. So I'll fix 50s KG pipes horizontally, in which I can push the suction pipes. The individual jets come then but behind a flap.

Epilogue:

If I look at my pictures like that, I'll probably close the hole in the page with a single flap. That just does not look good. Is that just the question, do I put piano hinge on the outside or do I prefer to invest in nice hinges, which can also be fixed from the inside? Questions about questions... ?

Until the next project
