  • FREUD SH 5

    I wondering if the freud SH 5 is capable of acepting a 4" dust collection hose. Does anyone have any GOOD pictures of it. I have seen the one's on and was wondering what everone thought of it.

    The SH 5 is designed to fit a standard 2.25" shop vac hose internally. But I find my 4" rests nicely between the adjuster knobs and works great because you are not restricting the airflow like you would be if you reduced the 4" to 2.25"

      There's a gentleman over at the WoodNet Forum by the name of CharlesM, he works for Freud. You might have quicker results posting this question over there. I looked in my Freud catalog and it doesn't give the size of the dust port.

      EDIT: Never mind. [img]smile.gif[/img]

      I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
