Hammer A3-41 and Hammer HS 950 dust port adapter

On my Hammer A3-41 I have a homemade dust port adapter. It consists of 4 rings glued together. Two of the rings have an internal diameter sized to tightly slip over the 120mm dust port on the machine and two have an internal diameter sized so that the Rockler Dust Right handle slides in. Once the four rings were fitting individually I glued them together to make a 4 ring stack. I had to cut a notch out of two of the rings for the Dust Right handle.

My Hammer HS 950 also has a 120mm dust collection port. For this one I already had a schedule 40 PVC dust hose adapter on hand and after stretching it a bit over the port I got it to fit. This adapter is made specifically to adapt schedule 40 pipe to 4″ flex hose. I had to use another adapter in line with the first to get it to work with my Dust Right handle.

  1. Ever thought about 3D printing a single adapter to go from machine to dust collector connection? Seems like it would be simpler and less chance for leaks. If you want to send me a Fusion 360 file with the correct diameters, I can print prototype(s) for you.

  2. When I become world dictator, one of my first commands will to make mandatory a single standard dust port on all dust making machines and a single standard dust port on all power tools.
