2.5" quick connect?

I have the Incra router table fence that has a 2.5" dust collection port. My router table doubles as my outfeed table so I attach and remove my fence as needed so I want to be able to quickly attach and disconnect the dust collection hose.

Grizzly told me they don't carry a 2.5" quick connect port and I didn't see one at rockler or woodcraft. Anyone know who carries one or have an alternative solution?

Thanks

Nathan

What size DC hose are you using? For all my DC connections I've made adapters from 3" PVC reducing inserts, turned to fit the tool outlet, and a 3" PVC coupling in the 4" hose. (Coupling is 4" OD)
Like Chris said, pics would be good.

My current setup is: 4-->2.5" reducer-->2.5" DC hose--> ????--> 2.5" post on Incra router table fence.

The ??? is what I'm looking for. What can I use to be able to connect/disconnect from the router table fence as needed.

I'll try to get some pics later when I get home from work and post them.

Thanks,

Nathan

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I have a 4" DC hose that I use for my thickness planer and 16/32 drum sander, I fabricated a slip-on connector out of metal that I use for switching between the two.

Look closely at this photo from your previous post.



You can find that part in a collection of adapters sold by either Lowes or HD for shop vacs. They work very well when you want to attach 2-1/2" hose to a DC system. I have three or four of them spread between the machines on my carport and in my shed. You may need to attach those flexible hose ends to something more solid like one of the through adapters in the kit, or to some PVC before the hoses will stay with just a friction fit.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?
