Help finding Y adapter

Anyone know where I can buy a 2-1/2” x 1-1/4” Y adapter?

I need it for my jobsite table saw with integrated dust chute.

If you can't find that, then consider a 2-1/2 Y adapter, then two 2-1/2 to 1-1/4 funnel adapters.

I am not sure. It may work, but a problem I keep running into is where two 2-1/2 inch fittings are the same size. One won't into the other. Instead, they butt into one another. I worry that you may encounter the same problem here.

I ran into it when I tried to fit an ordinary shop vac hose to a DeWalt 735 planer. The two butted up perfectly against one another - they were the exact same size. I could not insert the shop vac hose into the fitting on the planer. I had to buy an adapter with rubber and a hose clamp on one side, and the correct shop vac fitting on the other side.

Another concern is if the two ends of the "Y" joint are too close, preventing you from fitting the 1-1/4 inch adapters snugly on the 2-1/2 Y ends.

I wish I could be more help, but you must pay attention to how everything will fit together. Do you live near a woodworking store that stocks the parts?

I do not live near any woodworking shop stores.

I will hate it when that happen due to the OD/ID issue with the connectors.

I always have problem finding these connectors with my tools. BTW I have the dewalt dwe7491rs table saw.
