I am looking for a used dust chute for sale or a couple of pictures from different angles to build one for my Ryobi AP10 planer. Also if anyone is using it, does the chute work well? Is it worth connecting to a dust collector? Thanks in advance.

I have the stock dust chute and honestly, it catches and directs maybe 50% of the chips. I just park the planer next to the floor sweep in my shop and let the chips fall near it and sweep up later. On-line you are likely to find generic plans for a dust chute that can be adapted, but I really have too many other shop projects to do before I address this one. Ryobi has since changed the dust chute on newer models to address this problem. I bought the planer used for $50 and love it, for the price, chips on the floor easily swept into a floor sweep is not a problem.

Thanks Justin, I bought it for for cheap as well and mine did not come with a chute:). I guess I will try some generic designs, they just may work better it sounds like…
