So it’s time for me to do something about dust collection. I’m slowly putting together a plan for my shop which includes a dedicated DC, but in the meantime I will be using a shop vac with a Thien Separator. I’ve seen a lot of people using duct tape and what not to get the hoses to fit properly, but I feel there’s got to be a better way. The shop vac I have comes with a 1 1/4” hose, but has the fitting for the 2 1/2” hose. So I plan to use 2 1/2” hose from Grizzly for the project. My questions arise when I am looking into adapters. I’m sure they are simple, but I don’t want to order parts and have them not fit like I expect.
The hose I want to use: D4212 https://www.grizzly.com/products/2-1-2-x-10-Hose/D4212
The adpater to connect it to the shop vac: W2046 https://www.grizzly.com/products/2-1-4-x-2-1-2-Hose-Adapter/W2046
This should all me to connect to my Table Saw’s 4” dust collection port: W1044 https://www.grizzly.com/products/4-x-2-1-2-Adapter/W1044
