Simple elbow adapter to attach my spindle sander dust port to my shop vac. Made from scrap pine 2×4. Now the vacuum pulls items I’m sanding down to the top. May have to add an adjustable pressure relief.

Ha ha. my small shop vac does not fit any of my machine ports so i ended up making some custom adapters out of PVC and sanding/filing to fit but i like yours better. thanks.
