« Part 17: Rockler Demo and Unexpected Shopping trip Part 18 of Shop Upgrades series Part 19: Micro-Jig Caddy and Shop Manuals »

Little physical progress this past month, but got a lot done on the design side. I continue to focus on collection end of DC system. Got, though in retrospect I could have made, a small house and cord holder from Rockler. Laney Shaughnessy had a video on how to build you own, I discovered after I purchased one. Well maybe next time :-)

I had previously purchased a Universal Small Port Hose Kit from Rockler. It works great with my small power tools -reason for purchasing the Hose and Cord Holder Kit. However it didn’t fit my Kreg K4 Jig. So it took some minor brainstorming—all I have let this week s some minor brains ;-)—to figure how to connect Small Port hose to the K4: Results a little minor surgery to a vacuum to 2 1/2” adapter. Next is to connect Small port to Dust Right 2 1/2” flex hose and then 4” hose as a temporary fix till I get the 6” overhead ducting which would be a semi-permanent overhead collection.
