Made this for my Delta planer, a piece of 4 in. PVC drain pipe. It’s fastened to the planer with the same thumb screws that secure the cutter head cover so it comes on and off easily. The Delta hood is very small where the chips exit the planer, hopefully this one won’t clog.

That is very clever!
It never ceases to amaze me what wood workers come up with to solve problems in their shop.

Thanks! haha, with enough PVC pipe and plywood you could build an apartment building ;-)

My experience is only with DeWalt 735’s for lunchboxes, but the DeWalt has a much more powerful chip ejection than all others, or so I have read. The Wye on that pipe would be problematic with the DeWalley, so if what I have read is correct you will too.

We’ll see, there might need to be a rev. 2.0
