  • Shop Vac Accessories?

    I bought a 9 gallon shop vac with 1 7/8" hose. I'm overall very impressed with this little beast but I'd like to connect it to my bandsaw or router table for basic dust extraction. The problem is that my dust ports are ~2 1/4" and there are 0.. ZERO accessories to connect the 1 7/8" to 2 1/4". I have 2 accessory kits from Ridgid, and neither has any connections that seem to work with anything. If anyone has any hints, I'm totally open to suggestions or other accessories. I'm not an idiot... which is why i'm very confused why none of these fittings fit anything. It's almost like a practical joke.

    Try H.D. or Lowes. Both carry a stepped rubber adapter that you cut off what you don't need.

      Go to HD or Lowes and in the Plumbing Department look for a Fernco 1056-22 flexible coupling. I think that you should be able make one of those work to connect the two different sizes.
