Shopsmith connection
« on: May 04, 2017, 07:33 PM »
Newbie here. I purchased a CT36-E and want to connect it to the dust port of a Shopsmith Band saw.  What adapter do I need to connect the supplied hose to a 2 1/4" dust port?  Or do I need a different hose?

Can't directly answer your question, but both Woodcraft and Rockler have lots of adaptors. I'd recommend browsing them to find something to fit.

I'm sure you can rig something up. I've rigged up a 4" connection for mine before.

As bird hunter said lots of adapters out there.

When I need a quick fix I go a plumbing supply, or big box and look thru the Fernco connectors.

This link will give you an idea of the variety available.
It's a table saw, do you know where your fingers are?

I can check the fittings after church today so let me know if you don't get an answer. I have SS and Festool vac. My SS is hooked up to a Jet 1 1/2 hp dust collector though.

Go to Home Depot, buy the 2 1/2" hose kit for their shop vacs (about $25).  It fits the Shopsmith table saw dust extraction port perfectly, you just need to make sure it fits the CT36 intake port.
