Option 1: You could get a PCV elbow and aim it the direction you want. Option 2: Google “Images of Performax 16-32”, You will see some pictures of what some others have done to correct this issue.

i’ve the 4 inch on top, i’ve seen a bracket somewher that somehow attached to table top or frame of base that held the hose up and away, just trying to find a pic or idea before i dive in.

thanks for info. already did the images not a whole lot to see, a few used 90s on the top of the collector but after that the hose just hung down.
I’ll get it figured out, just trying to preserve what grey matter still works for other stuff. lol

I use a SDS PVC street elbow that fits snugly over the dust port and connect this part to a 4” flex hose to my DC. Typically I keep the hose positioned towards the indeed side (45 deg. twist to the rear of the sander) as this allows the weight of the hose to keep the drum lid closed.

Dang auto correct! indeed = infeed, SDS = SDR (thin wall sewer pipe, long radius).

Eventually I want to screw a coupler to the lower stand and make the hose connection between the dust cover and coupler a permanent setup. If set up right, the hose will always be out of the way and not interfere with opening the cover.

I have the Supermax 19-38—but the dust port is essentially in the same spot and also 4”. I route the hose through a loop of rope hanging from the ceiling. The rope supports the hose and gets it up and out of the way when you are using the sander. Let me know if you need a picture.

I”m thinking of using a SS piece like one of my small dust collector has to hold the top bag up, i attempted to do some bending last nite, seems my bending technique needs a little tweaking, but think i’ll eventually get there, then make a fabric saddle so to speak and then hang the hose off a spring attached to saddle. still work in process
thanks for the ideas

WOW! I hesitated about responding for days but it is time to come clean. I am also firmly in the “overhead lasso” camp, except mine is a bungee cord. I do not have enough room for a dedicated position in the shop for my drum sander, so it rides on casters. I roll it into position and support the hose with the bungee cord. The exit end of the hose has an adapter that allows me to hook it up to the dust collection port that serves my jointer. Total length of 4” hose from sander to dust collector is about 6”.

Drum sanders throw off a ton of very fine dust, but I have never had any issues capturing all of it with my temporary hookup.

Ditto on the bungee cord solution for my 16-32…

well, i have everything on wheels and generally push it out to edge of my garage in event of dust issues, so no cieling to attach hose, ect to. hence my idea of a metal tube frame or something similar to my dust collector support, i’m gonna dream something up this weekend and see where it goes

thanks
