Default Dust Collection Hose Mod

I found the following tip while browsing through the May/June 1998 Issue of Today's Woodworker Magazine.

I hope it will provide some inspiration for any of you that need to make some mods to your dust collection hoses so they will fit your machines.

Note: I have done something similar using the same basic setup as depicted in the picture. I needed to expand the PVC, so after making the cuts in the PVC, I used a heat gun to soften the plastic so it would spread and fit over a slightly larger dust port. Then I taped it and put a clamp on it to keep it secure.

Heat gun to soften the plastic-good idea. Now I can get my fittings to fit better.

A Great idea for a problem most all of us have likely had to deal with. I am definitely gonna file this one in the old brain storage area for future use.

Thanks, Mike. That's a nifty idea that has applications for some of my other projects.
