4” hose is a std size and came with the HF DC. Grizzly has a 4”x3” reducer. Search LJ’s, there are many DC threads, and a lot concerning the HF DC. The plastic hose with that DC builds annoying but not dangerous static – it will raise the hair on your arm and zap you. There is clear hose with steel wire support available, I think HF has it. Bond the wire to the DC ground wire and no more static.
