Kreg K5 dust collection
« on: February 03, 2014, 10:49 PM »
I was wondering what adapter to use to connect the CT to the K5 dust port.

Now, if someone could explain how to connect a hose to the Kreg port without having it pull out every time you fart, we'd really have something.

I have one of these. It works fine. 27 mm hose is a snug fit inside...36mm hose fits around it. Used it the other day on my K4.

I have found a perfect and cheap solution!

A length of 25mm conduit, and a 25mm coupling section (£3 total) (from B&Q). The OD of the coupling section is 30mm which is a piston fit inside the Kreg dust shroud. Then insert a piece of the conduit into this and attach the Festool vac - the 27mm (ID 25mm) hose fits perfectly over the 25mm conduit  [big grin].

  I covered this in a review that I did of the K5 versus the older Kreg jigs over at talkFestool. I ended up swapping the dust port of a K4 and popped it into my new K5. You DO lose the swivel ability of the K5, but no more port popping off the jig... [mad]  I think it's a simple shortcoming that Kreg should address with the K5, but for now, that older dustport is available as a really cheap part from them to fix your k5 if you want. I think it's $10 or less at various vendors, not  including shipping.

I upgraded my Kreg dust collection for $0.87 by getting this plumbing tube at HD, 20 sec with a heat gun and it slid over the dust outlet and the other end was already enlarged, the festool hose end fits tight inside that. I may shorten it a little so the  weight of the hose wont interfere.

I used the step-down adapter that came with my Leigh Super jig.   Fits perfectly.

My Fein step adapter fits it perfectly and allow excellent dust extraction. It is a 3 step rubber adapter that if quite pliable.

Fein adapter works perfectly. Like the 3D printed one though! pretty cool. Is the collection any better since its larger?

The Kreg K-5 pocket hole jig has a really annoying habit with the dust shroud falling off with the slightest disturbance, so I stuck it to the jig with epoxy resin. It doesn't annoy me anymore. I have no idea why this part can be removed, hence the glue.

An extractor hose reducer I had for years fits the Kreg dust port and the Festool extractor hose a treat.

I have the problem with the dust shroud falling off, also. It seems sturdy enough, but the weight of the hose pulls it off.  Guess I will have to glue mine, too.

Thanks! Did you just convert the .STL files to .IGES from HERE or did you make your own model?

I stated with that file but it didn't import correctly (scale issues) so I just created a SolidWorks 3D model from scratch and saved it as an .iges file and sent that over to the guy with the 3D printer and he used that to build the part for me. I believe the machines can use .stl or .iges files to create parts.

Old topic, but does anyone have the file in Solidworks or STL by mleny77. I like that model for K5

If you can get the .iges file you just open it in Solidworks and convert it to whatever you like after the feature recognition is run.
