As the title says…..

What fitting do I need to connect 6” PVC pipe to the 6” port on the dust collector? I’ve been searching this morning, but am apparently struggling. :/

Thanks!

I would use a section of flexible pipe/duct to isolate the vibrations of the Dust collector from the duct work.

That was what I had to do to put in an elbow on my surface planer (at 4 inches) but same issue.

You can find something like this in rubber in the plumbing section as well. I just used a section of hose, but these are cheap at HD/Lowes/Menards

Thanks! Makes sense on the vibration isolation. Used those gaskets on my bandsaw too.
