Make your own. A piece of plywood cut to fit the opening with a hole towards the bottom to which you can attach a generic 4” outlet will work fine and cost about 5$. But, as the chips are of good size and go straight to the floor instead of becoming airborn, why bother? I just sweep them up and dump in the can at the end of the day. Takes a couple minutes. Good score. That’s an EXCELLENT jointer. Get a jointer honing from someplace like Woodcrap and keeb the blades sharp, and they’ll last for years.


PS Be sure, if you build your own, to make the hole a little oversized and chamfer the edge inside to form a sort of chute to keep the chips from hanging up.

PPS Lovely Irish name, by the way.
