I am diligently working on my DC system. And, like all my projects, it is taking an eternity to complete. After all, I AM the slowest woodworker on the face of the planet! The average woodworker would already have it completely installed and 3 furniture projects completed by now.
Anyway, I am working on hooking up the CMS. I have run the 6" pvc ducting to the underside of the miter table, which seems to work just fine. I now need to hook up a hose fom the dust port down to the port under the table. I have a porter-cable 12 CMS (not a slider) The dust port is 1.5" id and about 1.75" od. I was thinking it might work if I could get some 1.5" flex hose from a vacuum cleaner shop and run that from the dc port down to a hole in the table. My problem is figuring out how to hook up the hose to the dust port. Do they make a fitting that will work for this. I got a 1 1/2 pvc elbow, but it is too big for the port. Any suggestions? Especially as to where I can get hose and fittings for this.
