What hose diameter?

I ordered a small vacuum attached dust collector and the inlet is 2 inches.
Iím using this collector for a track saw, should the hose be 2 inches or should I reduce out of the collector to 1 1/2 inches? Thanks

I had the same issue .....

I solved it by reducing the inlet hose with one of these:
You do not need the sanding pad, but the hose and adaptors are well worth it. The lightweight and flexible hose will make your sander much improved over a heavier, larger hose.

The miter saw is stationary so the flexible hose isn't necessary. Portable tools will benefit from a smaller flexible hose like I posted.

There is a 1 1/4" vacuum cleaner hose that I have found on the street on trash day. Folks are always throwing out upright vacuums and I take the hoses for projects like yours.
