Dust Free

I finally broke down and upgraded my dust collection system, the expandable air duct and floor vent just didn’t cut it!  I bought 2 blast gates, 10′ of plastic hose, a dust hood and clamps.  I hate to spend too much money (hence the metal ducting) but the new set up works wonderful.  I can now hook up a 2nd tool as well.

My biggest hang up was figuring out how to attached the dust collection hood to my lathe table.  I had gotten some magnet bars for Christmas and they seem to be doing the job very well.  I can move the hood up and down, left and right and removes easily!
