    I never thought of it either, till my dad pulled a whole mess of it out of a church when they re-did their projectors. Having some 20 odd 10' lengths of it in his garage, I realized it could be used to augment the hooks I had been hanging on the overhead garage door frame.

    I never did install any in his garage, but my paint booth will have several sections of it attached to the ceiling.

    Rather than using angle bolted to the ceiling, you should use electrical strut instead.

    This stuff is super strong, and comes with slots for easy installation on standard spaced studs. HD has it in stock for about 13 bucks for a 10'er.

    The rolled edges are made for a plethora of standard brackets and nuts, but can also work to hook your wire hangers on as well.

    Good idea, I never thought about using it.

    Here's a shot of the bandsaw cart I designed and tigged together to replace the backbreakingly low legs the saw came with from the manufacturer. It can be disassembled into three pieces (apart from the saw) for saw storage or transport. The casters are bolted on (not welded) for easy replacement.

    I use it it for welding fumes, plus my home made paint booth.

    Anyway the vents are insulated, because i live in Wi. But I also use an air conditioner once in a while in the summer.

    This is on the first five pages of this,http://www.1969supersport.com/paintroom.html the pictures are scattered around a little, but you can see the insulated vents. Anyway, for whats it worth.

    The last 4 for now..

    Used some 2" and 2.5" 3/16 wall square tubing to make some brackets for mounting a removable bench grinder and vice on the end of my welding table into a receiver style setup.

    1 is the mount for the grinder

    2 is the receiver portion with hole for the retention pin and 2- bolts in tapped holes that when tightened take the slop out of the system.

    3 grinder all set up

    4 grinder and vice stored out of the way so that the entire welding table is open.

    Thanks for looking

    1 and 2, I've always wanted an older gas pump in the shop ( for looks)..

    I found this one of craigs list for $40, I tore the guts out, sand blasted, repainted, replaced the plexiglass and other broken parts. I still need to get some decals to put on the front and back. It turned out really well. SWMBO has even told me that I can even bring it into my office in the house

    3 & 4 I picked up this drill bit sharpening jig at an auction a couple of years ago. This along with the motor out of the gas pump, an arbor and a grinding wheel turned it all into a drill bit sharpening setup.. It'll do until I improve my freehand sharpening skills.

    continued..

    1 used some 1/2" square tube and PVC tubes to make a rack to hold my tig filler wire

    2 Built a cart out of 1" square tube for our flux core welder that we take out on site for fence welding

    3 Made shelf brackets out of 1" flat bar and 5/8" square tube to put shelves up high in the garage and get the coolers, and other stuff off of the floor.
