  • air nozzle on dewalt

    Hi,
    my friend gave me his dewalt ss but it is missing the black air nozzle tubing it just has a transparent pvc tubing coming out of the air assembly, it blows air but very difficult to maintain on the project as it is not rigid. Can i just buy the black tennis ball tube by itself and cover the pvc tube? is so where can i buy one. i found one place where its used for oil, but its $20 and in that price i can buy the whole set for dewalt.
    any suggestions would be appreciated

    zipri,

    The easiest thing to do is to get the setup from DeWalt. The other tube you found may not fit your saw.

    Another thing you may try is to tape a bendable wire to the tube to hold it in place. Im thinking 12 or 10 gauge solid copper like whats in romex cable. I don't think stranded would be stiff enough. You may be able to get it per foot at big box store. Maybe a friend has some leftover from a wiring project.

    Or, you could blow it off yourself with a straw, but it's hard to control the wood as you pass out : )

    If you do go with the oil tube, get enough so you can blow the dust away from you, the DeWalt "tennis ball tube" isn't really long enough to do this.

    Have fun,

          I took the little little pointy end piece out of a cheapo ballpoint stick pen.

          shoved it into the end of the tube, works great, cost was nothing.

            I have a fan blowing across my scroll saw table that blows the sawdust away and cools me at the same time.
