I hooked up my new Shop vac to my mitre saw today. But alas, the port size, is different than the size of the hose. I temporarily solved the issue by putting the hose inside the spray elbow(that black elbow on Ridgid MS) then taping it in place with electrical tape… but now I cannot use it for anything else, unless I either remove the tape, or I take the elbow off(easy… so easy it falls off…. thats what I wish Ridgid would fix, needs a locking mechanism) and use it like that….
The setup seems to work okay…. I still get sprayed with dust, but not as much(and yes, I made sure the hose is in the sucker, not the blower…) I think soon I will have to get an I-Vac outlet..since its a pita to flip the vac, then the saw… also, I think I will be getting the exaust muffler,... since it sure is loud…
Any ideas on DC for MS?
