Purchasing a bracket for plumbing your dust collection hose can be a costly endeavor. Making your own brackets is definitely a more cost effective way to accomplish this task. I figured if I used a cut off from the pipe itself, I could make a bracket to hold the dust collection pipe

Step 1: Build Ans Install Video
Please check out my build video regarding making and installing this bracket
Step 2: Cut a Piece Off Pipe
* Cut a piece of pipe (same pipe you are using to Plumb your dust collection) to 3 inches long.
If you do not own a miter saw you can use a hacksaw.
Step 3: Making the Bracket
*Make a mark on the side of the 3 inch piece of pipe, then approximate about a third of the circumference and make a second mark.
*Make a cut on both lines.
*You should now have two pieces : One piece should be about 2/3 and one piece about 1/3 of the pipe.
*The piece of pipe that is 2/3 of a ring will be your bracket, discard the piece that is 1/3 of a ring.
Step 4: Install the Bracket
I used a kreg screw to install the brackets. This type of crew has a built in washer. If you do not have a kreg screw a standard screw with a washer can be used.
Locate the studs on the wall and drive 2 screws through the bracket and into the studs.
Repeats this step as many times as needed to plumb your dust collection pipe
Step 5: Plumb Dust Collection Pipe
Once you have made and installed all the necessary brackets, simply place your dust collection pipe where you need it and snap the pipe into the brackets.
