  • 5" fittings

    Anyone know where to buy 5" fittings? Particularly dust hood types... blast gates seem easy enough to find.

    Re: 5" fittings

    5" stuff can be difficult to find.

    Wellbeck has some http://www.welbecksawmill.com/Duct%20Work.htm

    As well as direct from oneida. https://www.oneida-air.com/inventory.asp?catid={7B0665DF-8BC3-420E-9047-327D1350E2A8}

    I had to make my own for my table saw for the 5" pipe. If you have the time to do it, it isn't difficult. If you don't have the time, you could always go to a local HVAC ducting company and I am sure they will make whatever you need for a price.

    You could also find a hood that fits your tool with a 4" connection and glue/screw a 5" flange over the 4" and then cut it out.

      Cool think I might just make my own fittings then using PVC plywood and silicone. Brettwood has 5" y's and a few places have 5" pvc and blast gates so think I'm in good shape so far.

        I used a bunch of hvac 5" fitting when I was putting together mine, worked pretty well.

            A router table dust port is fairly straightforward, all you need is a way to connect a hose at the back of the fence.

            I was in a hurry to get to work so I made a rough mock up for mine. Basically a piece of wood with a hole in it to attach to my existing fence and a 5" pipe connector.

            From the front work side.

            Not sure what you have for a jointer but mine has a built in chute. Piece of wood to cover the hole and some wood "fingers" to hold it on and allow for removal in case of a pile up !

            For the table saw I wanted above the blade collection too and the angles didn't work out so well with using Wye's so I built a manifold.

            This thread describes the build.

            Cheers, Don

              Thanks Don, yeah thinking thats what I'll end up doing, just hoping for pre-made ones to save me some time. My router table one will be underneath though as I have an incra LS positioner. Thanks for the link, great to see other examples.

                Most hvac 5" stuff will work,but dont skimp on tee wyes, hvac is too abrupt for the most part,and if you have serious cfm,pvc can give you some static issues,be sure and run a ground strap if you go with pvc

                    I have a contact email for a guy @ Bardon in town. I'm trying to grt a list of what i will need, then sending it off to him.

                    He seemed confident they would have what I need, either in stock, or could be ordered.

                      Yeah I'm trying to do the same... might grab a couple oneida fittings too but they're so expensive I want to keep them to a minimum. Maybe 2-3 tops.

                            if you need to crimp any duct work, I have the tool for doing so.
