My older 12 1/2” Delta planer doesn’t have a dust collection. When I use it, I set a 2 1/2” hose attached to a 650cfm collector, the hose is set 1/2” from the planer and 1/2” above the board being feed at the outfeed side. the I mount a 1 1/2” hose 4 inches over and 4 inches higher from the other hose, to collect the finer dust. This method allows me to catch over 80% of the shavings and dust. a lot less on the floor now verses not using the hose. you may have to adjust your set-up, to minimize you clean up. This probably won’t help you, but works for me.
