Default Festool dust collection adapter search

Does anyone have a source for an adapter that will go from 4" to 35mm like the Festool or Bosch?

I may have to go from 4" to 2 1/4" then from 2/1/4" to 35mm.

Adapter


Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.

Brad I went to homedepot and rigged it up from several parts in the plumbing section.
You can see I went from a 4" to a 2" reducer . The 4" fits my dust right connection . Then a 2" piece of abs in the reducer and a 2" rubber section that actually fit over the Festool connector perfectly .
Sorry if this doesn't help



I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I found a 35mm hose at Home Depot and it has a 2 1/4" on one end. I found a 4" to 2 1/4" reducer in the Rockler catalog. That should solve my problem.

My dust right stuff is in the mail (Rockler was having a 15% off sale) so I can finish off the dust collection on the router table and hook up to a new DC from HF. They were on sale and I had a 20% coupon. Have a few mods to make so off on another tangent.

I'm choked as I can't get the large dust right kit in Canada . It was on for half price but they don't ship to Canada . Amazon.ca just has the basic pieces and I would like the long wand section to clean the floor like a shop vac

I am waiting on Rockler and Woodpeckers.
I figured I was going to need an assembly table to put the drawers together so I ordered all the clamps and dual purpose track. Ordered the melamine and birch plywood. Some of it goes to build a cart for the DC, shop clamps, shop vac, thien separator, etc.

These sales are killing me but I "needed" them to finish the dual purpose table and to assemble the drawers.
