I was lucky enough to be given a brand new Delta JT160 for my new shop. I am currently using a Ridgid Wet/Dry vac for dust collection and would like to know what advice people can give for how to collect shavings from the dust chute on the side of the jointer. I can’t find any accessories designed specifically for this task and wonder what others do in this situation.

Look forward to your responses! You guys are awesome!

You may want to try Lee Valley or Rockler for a aftermarket dust hood that will fit, may not be designed specifically for this jointer but it may work. If that option is exhausted you could go to a local sheet metal place, make a rough sketch with some dimensions and they should be able to fab something up for you. Hope this helps and good luck!

The $5 solution.
I use a 6” universal square flange (Google: 6” UNIVERSAL FLANGE) that I clamp on the jointer with two speed clamps. Some day I’ll bolt one on… maybe.

Here are a couple pics of my jointer with the flange
The flange
With the hose attached

6” flange for a 4” dust collector hose. Held in place with two clamps. The suction from the dust collector keeps most (all?) the chips from sneaking out the ares not covered. Works for me ($5 solution). The duct tape adds a little to the diameter and helps keep the hose on. I don’t tape the hose to the flange.
