Thread: Making dust pickups, adapters etc

  1. #16
    Tom, can you draw what you have in mind?

    I've been looking into this myself as 1.) I'm cheap; 2.) I'm using a shopvac (albeit very good shopvac) for dust collection.
    I'm tempted to make one out of pine and shape it by rasp and chisel.

    You can make things out of plexiglass, cut it with a coping saw,or jig saw, just remember to make cuts slowly, bend it with a heat gun, and glue it together at corners with fiberglass resin.

    I know this is a stale thread but I have been making holsters out of Kydex. Kydex is a poly vinyl material that is supplied in sheets and is a thermoplastic. Heat in a toaster oven, regular oven ( if the wife allows...some odor ) or locally apply a heat gun until it reaches appooximately 325 degrees F. When plyable mold over a buck or by hand with gloves and cool quickly with a cold wet rag. Material is available in different thicknesses and is durable. It can be glued using pvc plumbing glue. If I needed a custom fitting, it is what I would use.
