Shop Vac /Dust Collector Advice
I only occasionally need to collect dust, so I bought Hm Depot Dustopper and HD bucket to use with my Ridgid 12 amp 2.5" Vac and HEPA filter (pic attached).
First thing I needed to do was sand some fiberglass / gelcoat. To hook up my 5" sander I had to reduce the hose size down so far that the vacuum crushes the HD bucket down to about 2/3 of its size.
First thing I thought about was an OLD pictured adjustable adaptor from my FORTY yr old Craftsman. I could probably make it work.
I am looking for other suggestions on how to adjust the vacuum or otherwise economically overcome this problem. I am not interested in buying another vac, dust collector, etc.
Any advice will be appreciated.
