This is new to me and I’ve searched a bit but not found specifically what I need to know. I have a small dust collector, Jet DC650, bought used and this is my first set up. I have the Ridgid TS 3612 with a dust shroud beneath it. The outlet is 4” diameter but it is stepped as though there should be a hard pipe inserted into it. Kinda reminds me of a plumbing elbow where the pipe would be inserted into it.
I also have a Ridgid jointer model JP06101 with a 4” diameter dust outlet, but the jointer has a smooth pipe as though a dust collection hoe should fit just over it with a band clamp.
Anyone having this saw may be able to tell me if the common union for joining two sections of DC 4” hose is what is needed to fit inside the stepped outlet of the table saw.
I have seen others comments saying their TS3612 is fitted with a dust tray that accommodates a shop vac hose. Not the case here – MY outlet is 4” but is stepped inside as though it needs a hard fitting placed within that inch and to which a 4” hose would then attach.
The Grizzly sander has only a 2” outlet and I’m not sure whether an adapter of 2” x 4” is what is needed or would there be a few inches of 2” hose that connects to the sander and then to an adapter that would accept the 4” hose. I’m in a rural location with no retail nearby and want to nail this down before ordering and having parts shipped.
I plan to upgrade my bag, build an accompanying chip collector (dual stage) and have the set up on wheels to hook up (quickly if possible) to whatever tool I want to use. I picture the system living beside my miter saw, which seems to be the most commonly used tool in the shop. For the 12” miter saw, I hope to fashion a hood behind it and attach a fitting for the 4” hose.
Thanks for any advice for these specific applications. I have already read quite a bit about the generalities, but have not found info regarding these specific tools.
Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas to all you LJs!
