I don’t need the flexibility of Rockler’s hose—it will temporarily connect my TS to DC until I get final shop layout done and ducting on the walls.

Any suggestions for less expensive hose that’s compatible with Dust Right hardware?

Look to your home centers. Some offer 4” drain hose for exterior use, they come solid and with a drain field opening, no slots works better ;-)

I still need a flexible hose to reach the machine but I don’t need it to be springy like the DR stuff.

Goto your store of choice and see if they have 4” flex duct. Im using 4” neoprene I picked up down the road. If you wanted something more cost effective you can go for aluminum.

Just about every major woodworking equipment on line store sells 4 inch flexible duct. Rockler is usually the most expensive. They are so expensive on most things that I can’t do business with them. Very often, Amazon will be your lowest cost, fastest delivery option. Here is one other example.

I use the harbor freight 4” hose with all my dust right fittings. works perfect. I have to order it, not an item my local store keeps on hand.
Bought two of them five years ago. Still working fine today.
And I like that its a clear hose. Easy to see if you get a clogged hose.
