Storing Your Shop Vacuum with a Five Gallon Bucket for Improved Shop Safety

Coiling shop vacuum hose in bucket To keep your shop vacuum's hose out from underfoot in the shop, keep it coiled up in a large bucket.

Here’s how I tame the vacuum hose “anaconda” that lives in my shop. All you need is a five-gallon bucket. Make a “U”-shaped bend near the nozzle end of the hose, and push it to the bottom of the bucket. Now, turn the bucket while you feed the rest of the hose around the nozzle. You’ll end up with a nicely coiled hose instead of a tripping hazard. I can fit two full lengths of hose into one bucket.
