Creative metalworker extraordinaire Ron Covell loves his 5 gallon shop vac. But the model he has offers no way of stowing the power cable or the hose. To remedy this, he created a looped cord and hose holder out of metal. Being Ron Covell, even this simple shop hack is well-made and handsome-looking.
Watching this made me glad that my $35 5-gallon vac from Harbor Freight at least has a cord bracket and hook built into the lid that holds the end of the hose (albeit in a manner that makes it clumsy to move the vacuum around).
