Having just completed the Shop-Vac Dust Collection cart, my sights turned to the biggest dust/chip maker in the shop, my 2nd-hand veteran Grizzly planer. When I picked up the planer last year, I was handed the Ridgid adapter as a “maybe you can get this to work one day” add-on gift. I made a few cuts and customizations on the bandsaw to the hood, and used some leftover 3/4’ MDF to mount the hood to. The difference is pretty astounding, almost ZERO chips eject out of the outfeed side, the only non-collected chips are few and far between and come out of the infeed side. Really pleased with the results this project.
I used specific part numbers above in hopes of catching some search engine eyes and directing other owners of this planer to this idea.
