So my G1022 does not have any dust collection so I need to build some in. The question I have is what is the most cost effective way to connect up my 4” hose to my 3/4” MDF that I am using to build out the dust collection “box”.

I purchased a PVC 90 degree bend and a toilet bowl flange to seat into the MDF and then “glue” the PVC to that flange.

Any input on an easier or better way to do all this? I have 4” and 5” flexible hose 10ft worth of each.

My TS sits about 6 feet from my dust collector which is a Grizzly 2HP model

If you already have made purchases, use what you have. Unless you want to return them and get other stuff, but what you have will work.

I bought a 6 inch to 4 inch DC reducer and had it laying around because I couldn’t use it for what I wanted. So I just cut a hole into some plywood and mushed the 6 inch reducer into the plywood for my contractor saw. It’s not elegant, but it works.

There is a couple other things I need to do dust collection on and the flange and pipe were like $15 I just want to make sure I get my TS squared away well.

I would recommend that you bevel your edge for the hole to the flange, that’ll help a little with flow. I need to seal my saw up better, but it made a huge difference just closing the bottom up and adding the reducer. I’m probably going to just put duct tape over holes to try to reduce dust ejection.
