Topic tags/keywords: craftsman jointer dust collection restoration

I recently restored a vintage Craftsman Jointer. I am having a hard time thinking of a good way to hook up my 4 inch dust collector system. As you can see in the picture it is just sits on the stand. I have tried searching online but cant come up with any good results. Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Kyle

You could place a piece of plywood or mdf covering top of the stand with a cutout below the blades. Then mount a “universal” dust port to the opening. I used mdf, a cutout of 6×7 inches and Woodcraft #85014 dust extraction fitting. If necessary, you can use weatherstrippng to seal.
