What do you guys use to connect the 4” flexible hose to 4” pvc pipe? Obviously I want the smoothest curves and transitions possible when designing the duct work.
I attached a visio drawing, the red shows the current layout for ductwork. If that’s not appropriate someone please advise. I want it done right :)
I’m thinking of going from the dust collector with the 4” pipe up the wall then with a 90 degree long elbow going to the left along side the ceiling wall for 4-6 feet connecting to a wye. From that point it goes down to a planer and across the ceiling to the table saw and jointer. All machines have a 4” opening that the hose will connect to. I plan to run a short 4” hose from the pvc to the machine at each location.
Does this sound like the proper way to run the ductwork to the machines and if so what about the fittings because I know the 4” pvc isn’t going to connect with the 4” hose.
What’s your thoughts?
