    Default A useful addition for dust extraction

    Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen

    Not my invention, but I have never seen these before, but found them extremely useful

    Requires an off cut of wood and an old vacuum hose

    I turned the blank of wood to suit the mouth of my dust extractor fitting. I then turned a recess to accept the hose. I used hot glue to hold the hose within the wooden adapter.

    Works really well, but the whistle a 3hp dusty to can make through the hose is loud
    Cheers

    To make it a lot more efficient and reduce the whistle make it thicker and turn a bell mouth into the exit.

    Actually a bell mouth hood might make it louder - but that is a good sign as it signifies it is moving even more air !
