« Part 4: Dust Collection #4 Part 5 of Dust Collection series no next part

Just a quick fix for plunge router dust collection hose that needs to be up and out of the way. It don’t get anymore redneck than this ladies and gents. Works grrrrrrrrrr8! The bungie cord keeps it up, and keeps it flexible. Total cost…. Ohh I don’t know, maybe 3.87…. LOL. Just so’s you’s know’s…........

I do have one long hose that I’ll use for “sweeping” up here and there, thus the longness of it,

my “hot-rod” floor sweep

and having it reduced to 2 1/2” I can use a few adapters like affixing it to my plunge router via a reducer, (it really sux that router dust btw), a brush, and

are just a few accessories that are handy dandy. Thnx for checkin in. You might be heading to Harbor Freight or Wally World to get a few bungies,,,,,,, don’t forget a hook to hang from the ceiling.

What’s nice about this bungee from the ceiling, I can hook up the hose at anytime at that area, because when I’m done, I just take the hose down, and hook the bungee to itself and it’s always there and up high enough where I have to reach for it…, I don’t hit my head or get my hair caught in the hook….......don’t ask how I know that part of the sitchee-a-tion… hahahaha

Bungies are almost as handy as duct tape!

Cool Idea!

Do you know the pound test on the bungee cords? If you get adventurous, you can bungee in your own shop Roger!
