Pvc dust collection plans,plans for corner linen cabinet,make wood mailbox post - How to DIY
When I installed a central ductwork system for my dust collector, I used 4" PVC pipe instead of steel and saved 75 percent on the cost. To soften the PVC for the joints, we slipped a hose clamp over the pipe and carefully heated the pipe until it softened.
With the pipe end soft, he slipped the fitting into the pipe, slid the hose clamp up near the end, and tightened it to snug-up the softened PVC end. With no tape, glue, or steel, and only a single hose clamp, it's a clean, simple way to build an inexpensive but effective collection system.
