Dust Collection for My CNC Router

After some recent mishaps with my dust collection hose (read Dave was impatient and screwed up) I decided to put in a better solution. I can’t currently justify spending a thousand dollars on Nordfab ducting.

So the alternative was sewer and drain pipe along with some PVC fittings that I picked up from Home Depot and a $11 ball swivel from Woodcraft (that black thing at the end of the green pipe).  It will work for now.  FYI the ball swivel alone would cost nearly $200 in metal.

I am sure it would be better but nearly 20 times better?  Not so sure about that…  Time for bed.  I will add the hose and test everything out tomorrow and post an update.  Check out my Youtube videos for some background on the mistakes I made and their consequences.
