Controlling Wood Dust In A Small Shop
Every machine you want to collect dust from needs to be ultimately fitted with a 4″ male fitting so the flexible hose can attach to it. [Jointer – below]
Many newer machines come with a 4″ port, e.g., most jointers, planers and table saws. My machines did not and I needed to attach specialty hoods [black hood above] to fit to my machines and attach to the 4″ flexible hose. I used self tapping machine screws to install them.
On my cut off table saw, below, I had to modify an area below the saw to mount the dust hood. I wanted to mount it under and close to blade.
