This is a great idea. I really like the practical jobsite central dust collection. The multiple tool-actuated outlets is a nice feature. However, 8 outlets seems like overkill. Especially considering you only have 3 vacuum ports. Why not 4 tool-actuated and 4 direct power? That way you have some centralized power without the vacuum turning on. It would also give you the ability to run the vacuum/tools and the second box off different circuits. Unfortunately, I can't see an easy way to accomplish this without two power cords from the box. Would two cord wraps screwed to plywood on opposing sides from handles make it too bulky? What do you currently do with the cord when it's not in use? Also, was there any reason for not installing casters on the bottom?
