Hello woodworking friends,
I just purchased a used woodsmith DC for my basement workshop. I am new to the dc because my shop use to be in the garage and I just used a ridgid shop vac.
My question is, the unit uses a 2 1/2 hose. Is 2 1/2 a standard where if I go to say Rockler or Woodcrafter I can buy a new hose and blast gates and etc… that it will work with this collector. Or does shopsmith make it difficult to modify cause they want you to buy from them.
I took the hood off and cleaned it last night. ( Wow, what a mess. Glad I was outside when I did that). I didn’t really get a chance to look at the fittings that the hose connects to the DC, and being new to this I’m not even sure I would really know what I’m looking at.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
