Tool Curve - 3D printed dust adapters
« on: November 07, 2022, 11:00 AM »
Hi, Has anyone bought these dust adapters from Tool Curve? Recently i placed an order for 4 dust port adapters. 2 out of the 4 work perfectly and other 2 the part numebrs were wrong and the incorrectly supplied part does not fit. I reached out with an email, explaining the problem. I think its a one man shop and he seems to be looking at email @ random. While i do want to encourage these small one man shops, it is frustrating as he does not check messages regularly. May be once a week @ best. He did acknowledge my email and asked for an explantion / pictures. I sent him both and also a small video clip explaining the incorrect fit. Its been over 2 weeks and i have not heard back. Its 2x25$ part, but its frustrating to do business with people who are less professional. Have any of you had any experiences dealing with Tool curve?

Black Raptor tools would be my recommendation.  Similar products, good support.

I have. I bought a dust port adaptor for the compact Makita router. It fit properly and has worked well. I had no other interaction though, mine went ok the first time.

I also purchased two adaptors without incident. One for the RAS (which I see as correcting a bad tool design) and for a jobsite Dewalt table saw.
As mentioned, both fit and work as intended. Have no experience with their customer service but also assume it’s a one man operation.
Good luck!

Oh, I have the one for the TS55 also. I forgot about that yesterday. It is fantastic.

Yes; bought an exhaust port  adapter to accept a 27mm Hose on an 8 1//2" Skilsaw Portable table saw - still using it; worked as advertised.

I have bought multiple times from tool curve . He is slow in response but reputable in my experience.

Ordered a arbor dust cover for my TS 75 on one of my orders .  He shipped the TS 55 one by mistake. Contacted him and it was a slow reply . However , he shipped out the correct one with now quibble.

My guess , he has a day job and family .
