Here’s what a little portion on my shop dedicated for electrical connections looks like.

Image

For wire termination I have these.

Image

Pretty happy with the result as it automatically turns on my dust collector every time I turn on a tool and have a decent transmission distance of 40 feet. But very pricey.

But I have alternative solution to beat the cost. Found this shop at T Alonzo and they specialized on electrical equipment purchase some case and magnetic contactor.

Image

The price is cheap compared to the first one I build

Nice to have this for the dust collector too, switches ON simultaneously with other tools like router/sander/saw/etc

Got this couple of months ago the metal tube is collecting RUST on my area. Intentionally I will install this as part of my air system but to the lack of a very good compressor I’m afraid it may took a while before I can put this on used.

Image

Since it is rated to handle water pressure decided to install this as my pressure washer hose reel.
Got reducer to the hardware store to fit the ¼” connector to the pressure hose.

Image


Bolt and install the mainline it will definitely organized the hose from the garage.
