    One way would be to use a Fernco 1056-315 Flexible Coupling. They, or an equal, are available at HD, Lowes and probably most hardware stores. You could also just use duct tape. Other options are also available and I'm sure others here will chime in.

      you might want to consider placing a separator between your vac and the saw. A shop-vac with a 1-1/2" hose is most likely going to have limited capacity to handle sawdust and you will be surprised how fast a TS can generate it.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
