Whether you are trying your hand at a few more DIY projects this year, or you’re already a dedicated fix-it type looking to expand your collection, there are a few essential tools and accessories that everyone should have at their disposal. A garage vacuum cleaner is just one example, and GarageVac has created a design that combines power, efficiency, and convenience into one compact model. Continue reading to learn why our compact vacuum cleaner is a garage must-have and to get a few more ideas for your tool collection!
In part one of this series, we started the conversation with five elements every garage should have, including storage, a fire extinguisher, and a socket set. In today’s post, we continue with a few more garage shop ideas to help you make the most of your space. Review part one for the complete list and explore our blog for more inspiration on how to keep your garage clean, organized, and useful.
1. Bench Vise
Like a socket set, a bench vise is likely to be a useful tool no matter what projects you work on in your garage. It’s better than having an extra hand, because not only is it capable of holding pieces in place while you loosen bolts or make cuts, but also because it can exert force to hold objects together while you wait for glue or paint to dry. Whether your passion is woodworking, building, automotive improvements, or something else entirely, a bench vise is sure to come in handy.
2. Power Strips and Extension Cords
From portable lighting to power tools, there are a lot of garage tools that require electricity, and you can’t always be right next to an outlet. A few extension cords and a power strip or two will significantly boost the usability of your garage, and give you even more options as to how to use it. Just remember that you shouldn’t daisy chain power strips together, or you might have to use that fire extinguisher we mentioned earlier.
3. Air Compressor
Once you get an air compressor, you may wonder how you lived without one. It adds a whole new level of convenience to working in the garage. You can now adjust the air pressure in your tires at home without paying for the pump at the nearby gas station. You can also use air-powered tools, like that pneumatic wrench you’re now eyeing, and clean and air-dry parts. Trust us, it will be worth it.
4. Vacuum and Cleaning Supplies
Keeping your space clean is an important step to keeping your garage safe, with the added bonus of avoiding pointed comments and complaints from your spouse. Lucky for you, GarageVac has made clean-up easy and convenient with our specially designed garage vacuum cleaners. Mount your compact vacuum cleaner inside a cabinet or storage space, or mount it right on the wall with just four screws. Our vacuums are only 9 inches wide and 4 inches deep, so they won’t take up valuable space, but they still have the power to vacuum 100 cubic feet per minute, and come with an extendable hose that reaches up to 40 feet. Tidy your workspace, detail your car, and so much more.
