Two 28 oz peach cans make the perfect 4” transition from pipe fitting to blast gate to flexible hose. The rest of the blast gate was made out of scraps laying around the shop. The spring loaded lever holds the blast gate in the open position. Nothing fancy but it works. I used a piece of a bicycle inner tube as a gasket where the peach can goes into the pipe fitting.
