On my old Delta 14” this is what I did. I’ve read a few variations of this approach, and it might be handier to put the port in the bottom of the door. This did what i would call an acceptable job….it’s tough to retro fit the old 14” cast iron bandsaws. I don’t know how well it shows up in the pic, but I put a piece of plexiglass that was folded like angle iron covering the spot where the old port fit, until I did this a fair amount of dust could blow out the opening. This was a little unhandy since you had to remove it (2 sheet metal screws) to change blades.
