10 Top Tips for Dust Collection
Brew up some vacuum-hose connections
Looking for a better way to hook up sections of 4" flexible dust-collection hose? The solution is percolating in your pantry!
The next time you empty a one-pound coffee can, cut off the bottom and use the can as a coupler. The rolled steel edges of the can prove much stronger than the crimped hose connectors sold in stores. Attach the hose leading to the dust collector with a screw-type hose clamp, and if you want a quick-change fitting, connect the hose leading to the tool with a 4" spring clamp.
