I am looking for some 4" male/female fittings that I can't seem to relocate. (I saw them once somewhere) They were 4" and they consisted of a standard male type that you could attach to equipment/etc. There was also a female fitting that you could attach to a hose. It was similar to this idea (http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=30197&site=ROCKLER) except that the male had 2 tabs and the female piece would slide on & twist to lock the pieces from coming separated.

An help will be appreciated. I just can't seem to find them. Thanks.

Here's another version

I used 4" schedule 30 PVC couplers and the Rockler flare fitting JW1047. It's not a force fir, but it will stay together and the suction keeps it together.

I got about the same idea as Woodnthings. I put the coupling on the hose and a piece of pvc on the machine. The Coupling provides a nice seal while I can easily change the hose on the different machines. I have one run that ends with this connection and I will move the bandsaw or planer to the hose. Cost was a piece of left over pipe and about $3 for the coupling
