How to Connect a Saw to a Wet-Dry Vacuum
By: Joe Truini
I got a new wet-dry vacuum, and I love everything about it except that I bought it, specifically, for use with my miter saw here and I discovered that the vacuum hose
doesn’t fit very well on the back of the port. It’s too big.
They do make plastic adapters that you can use to attach the hose to the saw, but I’ve decided to make one using an old bicycle inner tube.
I took a pair of scissors and I just cut a section, about 3 or 4 inches long. I’m going to use it to connect the hose to the saw itself.
I discovered you could take the little section of inner tubing and fold back the end, that makes it easier to slip it onto the hose.
You then take the other end and put it on the vacuum port.
Now when you hook it up, and you go to make a cut with the saw, all you need to do to collect all that dust, is flip on the vacuum.
