Nice machine Mr Joubert
I wanted to show my improvised cable setup . I put all the cable inside a vaccum hose and the extention for the power to the router is tied on the side. The hose fit nicely in a 2X3 metal stud actually the tract used for drywall .It will protect the cables from rubbing on metal .I did the same for the dust collecting system. This was to be temporary but never got around to change it for the last 4 years

Try experimenting with PVC lawn edging , comes in black and dirt brown. 100mm and 150mm widths. Drill holes through it and cable tie flex tubing or cable to it.

Just be aware that if you run an unheated shop in winter (-5c or less), the stuff can get brittle and snap.

Thanks Paco! Your last link needs a log-in . . . . I think it is not available to the public.
