Here’s some specs:
Rockler 4” Flex Form hose (goes to the drill bit)
4” hose splice (between the Flex Form hose and flexible dust hose)
Rockler 4” flexible dust hose (cut it as I didn’t need the whole 10 ft length)
Dust Right 4” hose connector (clamped onto 4” flexible dust hose)
Rockler Dust Right expandable hose (with other Dust Right accessories nearby for other tasks)
Corner shelf above drill press helps support everything (I secured splice to the shelf with 2 hose clamps)
First picture is all set up for d/c:
simply loop 4” flexible dust hose (with Dust Right 4” hose connector on it) onto Dust Right handle
position Flex Form hose at the drill bit
open blast gate
Other 2 pics are how it normally looks. As you can see I’ve place by Dust Right hose vertically with the blast gate on the bottom. The hose is quite heavy, so I’ve screwed the blast gate to a stud and also just placed a scrap board in front to help support the hose/blast gate. The board is just held in place by the weight of it all. Seems pretty stable with the board. Also built an MDF cage for hose. Front piece of MDF swivels out of the way when I need to drag the hose across the shop.
All in all I like the set up. Great dust collection at the bit when needed and it easily gets out of the way when I don’t want it there. I also really like the Dust Right system. Can quickly and easily clean up the shop.
Thanks for looking!
