Improved dust collection on Hammer N4400
« on: March 02, 2020, 11:29 PM »

Similar to the other gentleman who commented on the other thread I too am less than impressed with dust collection on the N4400.

Worked on some prototypes over the weekend designing in fusion 360 and cutting out on my CNC.

Got some pipe and fittings from Rockler - there will be a fair bit of trial and error over the next week but I’ll update on progress.

Matt, make the extraction version I posted in another thread. It works.

@derekcohen that is roughly the plan. I bookmarked yours.

I'm modifying it slightly to work with my 4" dust collection system, and using some slightly different hardware, and making it a  little easier to attach and detach.

But your design and  work has been invaluable in the  design phase, really appreciate you sharing all of those pictures and your ingenuity.
