I sand a lot of projects at my workbench. The problem is that the power cord and the dust collection hose of the sander are always in my way. Either they’re tugging as they hook on the edge of the bench, or they trip me up as they snake around my feet. I decided to solve this frustrating problem once and for all. The answer came in the form of a swinging arm. With the help of an eye bolt and hook-and-loop strap, it holds the cord and hose up out of the way. The arm swings freely because it’s attached to a disc that rides on a lazy Susan. And, as the photo shows, the lazy Susan is attached to another disc that’s mounted on a post. The stiffness of the hose serves to move the arm back and forth as needed. A base attached to the post makes it easy to clamp to the bench.
