Ceiling mounted boom arm and guide rail storage
« on: July 11, 2017, 05:47 PM »
Just bought the track saw "waited to long" and Needed a quick solution for dust collection and rail storage. I did not want the 116" out in the open. Looking at getting mft table and making a mft bench next when time allows. I still need to finish making a shelf support for the vac and run power on the boom.

I have hardwood racks above my CMS and RAS on the long wall of my shop.  I just lay my long rail on top of the wood.  It is supported but readily available.  Short rails go on the lower layer of my Paulk inspired rolling workbench.

I thought of just mounting supports under a set of cabinets but I was looking at using the rail storage when I need to take it on the job.

I've been looking on eBay for a while for a cheap operatory light. They had two pop up on Craigslist recently that were pulled from a local hospital. $200 was a helluva score. This light sells for 600 on eBay without the ballast, like 2000 new...think you could get a used one shipped for 150-300 for a smaller one. 6000 lumen and I installed a three jack at the end for power -  the light has a 7' reach from the wall mount.. I have a midi so the boom arm wasn't and option.
