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!
