  • Dust blower tube

    Hi I have a Delta SS250 16in. saw and the dust blower is awful . So i hooked up fish tank air pump. i was wonder where i can get some flexiable hose that i can bent in the direction i would like and it would stay where I put it. plain air hose just will not stay where I tape it.

    Flex hose

    There are a couple of things you could use.
    The tube from an oil can.
    Craft shops have flixable tubing for doll limbs. A friend of mine used one of those for his saw.

    One note for this type of airhose, I sometimes find it a bit of a pain when I am cutting a piece with lots of internal holes.
    You have to move the hose each time you rethread the blade.
    Sometimes I just end up blowing the dust away on the small holes.

      pretty sure I saw replacement tubes on the Flying Dutchman site.
      On My old Dremmel saw, I just unhooked it all together and used lung power.

        DAdams, www.wildwooddesigns.com has a blower kit with the flexible tubing you need for $14.95. Part # T119. I believe Mike at www.mikesworkshop.com has a kit also. Mick.

          I know that some have attached my hose to a Delta 16" See picture.

          One welded a little piece on the arm.

            Vacum Not blower

            First of all, I get most of my tubing at the local Home Center.

            Here is a setup using a small vacuum using a combination of 1/2 inch Schedule 20 PVC pipe for the upper arm and 'old' vacuum hose to a Crevice Took glued to the underside of the table with silicone cement.+

                Just from out of the blue, I wonder if having dissatisfaction with the dust blower correlates with running the saw at a very low speed habitually? I've used the Old Delta, Newer Delta, and the DeWalt (my current saw) and I find the dust blower quite adequate when running the saw at at least 1/3 of its maximum speed. Under that, the blower don't blow.

                  Nice job there! I have a vacuum on my saw too. I also made a dust collector for an ould saw from a bathroom extraction fan in a plastic pail with drier hose to the bottom end of my scrolling table.
                  The problem with blowers is they don't get rid of the dust they just move it.

                    Inexpensive Blower Tube mounting

                    An inexpensive way to make your blower tubing stay in place is to strap it to a piece of coat hanger wire with electrical ties. The wire is flexible enough to move yet rigid enough to keep your blower tube in the right area.

                      Max,
                      I like that idea!! Please elaborate more ie: where do you attach the coat hanger etc. I would love to try this. I think I have tried every method mentioned here.
                      Thanks,
                      Mike

                        Will duct tape work ? Heavy copper wire works good too . I like the mini vac idea . I have about five tools that I could use them on . Thanks for the idea .

                          Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                          Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                          Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                          My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                          I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                          Was it a good idea.....?...

                          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
