  • Dust Hoods (how to keep in place)

    Now that I have a dust collector, I want to start doing some intarsia. I just purchased a dust hood to put behind my flex drum sander.

    My problem is, when I put the hood behind the sander it doesn't seem to stay and I guess it's because of how heavy the 4 inch hose is. Does anyone have any tips, tricks or some kind of fix to make the hood stay put? My shop is small so I cannot affix any permanent tubing or hoods behind each machine. I have to keep things portable. Thanks for your help.

    I'd get an old floor fan to convert or build something out of 2" x 2" like this.

          Not my idea actually. A local toool company sells them but for $100.00. I figure it is almost as easy to make my own.
