So I rescued this fine piece of American machinery from some woodworkingly challenged craigslister for a whopping $300 bucks. She was missing the special bolts that hold the rails on and the motor cover. Although I’ve come to learn that many mid 80’s vintage unisaws didn’t come with the cover. At any rate, after slapping together a few pieces of 1/2 inch birch ply I was pleasantly surprised to to see that this leftover 4 inch OD toilet flange was a perfect fit for my four inch vacuum hose. Now that I know everthing fits and works properly Ill take the cover off and give it some sandpaper love and a nice coat of the finest big box store Delta Gray!

I love that you used something that was available rather than make a special effort to find a dust fitting!
