• 4'' Opening
• Rugged ABS Plastic
• Abrasion Resistant
Great Idea! (Iffy Execution.)
The tapered "Port", when combined with the matching tapered quick disconnect 4" O.D. Dust Collection Fitting (item #140259) will work - if you use either a rubber band for a friction fit (if you regularly need to move it to more than one machine), or, with a suitable adhesive (such as E-6000) if you're never going to move it again. So, yes, I would recommend this to a fellow woodworker with the appropriate forgoing modifications. In fact, I may try affixing the rubber band to the inside of the 4" quick disconnect - if that doesn't interfere with connecting it to the straight, un-tapered, 4" hose to 2¼" fitting connector I also need to use.
Couldn't make it work
tried several options to adapt this and other ABS chutes to 2-1/2" collection system. Possable with many fittings but space was probibiting. Shame too as this would have worked so well.
It's a Contractor's table saw accessory that gives the saw a bad name in the way of dust collection performance. I have a much better solution.
This unit is 12x12 is size. The opening is a tapered opening with an OD of 3-3/4". You can not clamp on a hose as it would slide off. In order to use this effectively, one must retrofit a hose to it or find the proper piece that will fit it. No matter what one uses, because of its design the hose adapter will not stay on.
