Vacuum attachment for different ports?

I tried posting this question b4 but its not showing up anywhere that I can see. I have several small countertop tools that have various dimensioned vacuum ports. I want to setup a small shop vac system with a common pipe and blast gates for each tool. Is there anything else besides this to handle this? At this price I don't find this a great option to do 5 tools. Thanks Pat

$39.00 per machine? Holy cow that's a lot!

Could you make something out of PVC plumbing parts and common vacuum hose?

I must be in the wrong business $39 for a couple pieces of rubber and a piece of hose?? I made some fittings from wood to use the hose I currently have but have 3 different size ports plus the ones for the hand sanders. I need something flexible but able to be secured without gluing it to the tool. Hose clamps would work but need a way to couple some sort of standard hose to all the fittings.
