My dust control hook up to the pocket hole jig:

I cut the bottom end off of an old popup sprinkler housing. Then using a hole saw, I drilled the threaded end out to approximately the size of the vacuum adapter of the pocket hole jig. Then I enlarged it just so it fits snugly on the pocket hole adapter piece. I cut off the hose connection portion of an old floor tool from a vacuum set, heated it and made it slip over the sprinkler housing part. I drilled some holes around on two sides of the sprinkler part until I could hear that the vacuum wasn’t laboring when it was going. I gave it a good test. Works very well. No more mess when I am drilling pocket holes. Yay!
