Any suggestions to source a replacement dust hood? Jet has them for 300+ which is ridiculous. This is to fit the drum sanders with the over the drum support and the feed table that raises and lowers. I assume the castings for the overhead support that the newer hoods snug to are all the same – 1980’s Performax to the late model Jet. I have three of the older USA made Performax 22-44 3 legged and 4 legged and they are the same. https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/qmw2yay.jpg!

I made one out of wood when I had a Performax. It wasn’t too difficult.

Trying to avoid a wood one. Thinking about PVC board if I shop make one. But prefer OE. Two of these drum sanders I bought cheap to fix and flip.

I’ve seen people who have built their own drum sanders use large PVC pipe. Here is one from Shipwright.

Lazyman – that’s a cool homemade one. I’m needing OE or OE lookalike source though to resell machines. Or I’m going to make jigs and heat bend PVC board to make a couple similar to OE. Maybe I’ll go into business, could fab some with twin 4” or a 6” opening. There are a lot of these sanders out there, and the covers are prone to damage. And the early ones with 2” ports lack suction.

You could call it the new and improved cover. :-) It would probably work better and be more durable than the stock one.
