Bob, thanks for the info on the Magports and the 5 inch Fernco coupling to adapt them to the A3 jointer/planer.  Attached picture should look familiar. 

The Magports are a greatly improved way to disconnect and reconnect the dust hose on my J/P.

Which coupler are you using? When I looked at Fenco web site and their drawing for the 1056-55 it shows an ID of 5.5 that looks way too big for a 5 inch magport or 120 mm hammer port.

Thanks

Glad it was helpful.

Same question as just posted on the post above:

Right, the 5" Fenco coupler is too big with out modification.   What I did was to cut a section out of it and glued it back together with CA glue to have it fit the 5" Magport.   You can see the seam in a few of the pictures I posted.   

This is still too big for the 120mm (4.72") Hammer outlet.  I put several layers of Silicone Rubber Self Fusing Tape on the 120mm outlet to make the diameter larger.  Only took a few layers.   The 1 1/2" size that I linked to was the right width.

Hope this helps.
