PostPosted: Fri Dec 08, 2017 7:20 pm 
Trying to connect the dust port of my saw to my Henry Hoover. I know its not a perfect solutionbut its early days.

Stuck at the first hurdle. The saw port seems to measure OD 39mm and ID 36mm.

Any one solved how to take that to a vacum - Henry is OD 32mm and ID 28mm

Any other suggestions

Thank you
