I have bought a powermatic plane model 100 and I would like to install a dust chute on it. Any ideas? Thanks

I am going to have to fabricate one for my 160, probably one of the hardest parts to find. The factory made ones require more suction then many dust collectors have.
I have seen various home made ones that look good. One worthwhile observation is how the planer is throwing out the chips. then try to make a hood that matches the flow.

Look, ask on OWWM.org. Best site for old woodworking
machines. Practical Machinest is good too.

I did this to mine. I think the hood came from Rockler. I was going to use it for something else, chopsaw or something…
It works better than nothing…



I added a piece of plywood to the back to keep errant chips flowing into the hose.
OWWM has one made of furnace ducting that ejects from the side…
I think I’ll try that some time…
