    All,
    I am struggling to come up with a good way to store the attachments and wands in the workshop. Any creative ideas out there? Pics greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance...

    I've never seen a good storage system for all of that kind of crap. I threw most of the attachments away for that very reason...

    Right now, I just throw my attachments in a short file cabinet, but it is setting my OCD alarms off.

    How many attachments? Could you drill a 1x6 to accept 1" or 1 1/4" dowel and hang it neatly in a corner on the wall? Or, beneath a work bench?

    I would have to count. I have a mix between 1 1/4, 1 7/8 and 2 1/2 attachments. Good suggestion about the dowel rods though.

    If you have that many to deal with it might be easier to do a small piece of pegboard with the long(er) hooks. Weight isn't an issue, they could be bent up a little to help hold them on there, and assortment pack of the long hooks should have 2 - 3 different sizes for the different attachments. While I'm not a big fan of pegboard there was a bunch in my shop when I took it over, and I've certainly made use of it as much as possible. Kinda handy in a lot of cases!

    I could post up a pic of how I keep my shop nice and tidy, but I don't want anyone else to keel over from fright. However, I keep all my attachments in the box they came in along with other attachments from other vacs on top of my cabinet storage.

    Here's a sketchup I made of the one I am building as we speak. Plan to put the nozzles and such in the drawer @Tony
