ideas to make dust extractor hose stable

I have bought a dust extractor with my lathe. I want the hose to be adjustable to take the dust up and i need to make it so i can get it to stay in place, bascially some material that will make it firm enough to stay in place but still be manoverable. Has someone else already found a soultion for this?

Thanks Shaun

dust collector

Hi Shaun,
You'll find that the dust collector is not going to get the big chips made as you are truing up a blank or hogging out a bowl. Most of those chips shoot back at you. The dust collector comes in very handy when sanding. I have just taken a bungie cord and wrapped it around the hose and attach the two ends of the cord somewhere on the lathe, out of harm's way. I try to position the end of the hose a few inches behing the piece I am sanding or drilling. You'll see the dust trail heading right into the end of the hose. You'll notice the difference when you blow your nose after you are done and it doesn't turn the kleenex the color of the wood you were turning.

The stand works well, but don't use the yellow fixture - it is way to small. Rockler sells a "hood" that attaches to the stand and gets all of the dust and, because it is pretty wide and if it is in the correct position, will even get a lot of the chips and streamers.
