Whoever had and used Proxxon srcroll saw knows how it’s blowing hose is irritating, so I decided to replace it with plastic one bought from E-bay for a 1$. Just a small squared piece of beech, 5mm hole from one side and 12mm hole from another and it works perfectly.

A very good idea. I also use the Loc Line on my Hegner scroll saw. The 1/4” size works great on the blower.I also use a 3/4” sized one hooked to a vacuum.
