I just got a new (to me) tool for the shop that was a royal pain to dig out every time I wanted to use it. I had no good places to store it. I wanted a wall hanger that I could make in 5 minutes. It consists of a piece of PVC pipe slit into two halves with a bandsaw or jigsaw. Then, one halve is cut into a fork. Then I put 3 countersunk screw holes into it and screwed it to the wall.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Make Two Half-pipes
Slitting the pipe into two halves is easier if you have a good guideline. I rolled the pipe up against the rip fence on my tablesaw and drew a sharpie marker line down the length of the tube. I rotated it 180 degrees and did it again. A jigsaw does a good job of cutting the pipe lengthwise.
Step 2: Cut a Fork Into the Half-pipe.
Again, I drew a grace mark on the half-pipe before sawing a fork into it. Go about 1/2 way around with the cutting of the fork. i used a bansaw for this.
Step 3: Drill Countersunk Holes for Mounting on the Edge
I used a combination drill/countersink to make my holes. I put 3 of them along the edge.
Step 4: Profit!
Screw the half-pipe to the wall and hang your grinder on it. Now it can be hung on the wall instead of plopped on the floor.
Step 5: Thank You!
