Default Flex hose

There are a couple of things you could use.
The tube from an oil can.
Craft shops have flixable tubing for doll limbs. A friend of mine used one of those for his saw.

One note for this type of airhose, I sometimes find it a bit of a pain when I am cutting a piece with lots of internal holes.
You have to move the hose each time you rethread the blade.
Sometimes I just end up blowing the dust away on the small holes.

pretty sure I saw replacement tubes on the Flying Dutchman site.
On My old Dremmel saw, I just unhooked it all together and used lung power.

DAdams, www.wildwooddesigns.com has a blower kit with the flexible tubing you need for $14.95. Part # T119. I believe Mike at www.mikesworkshop.com has a kit also. Mick.

I know that some have attached my hose to a Delta 16" See picture.

One welded a little piece on the arm.

Default Vacum Not blower

First of all, I get most of my tubing at the local Home Center.

Here is a setup using a small vacuum using a combination of 1/2 inch Schedule 20 PVC pipe for the upper arm and 'old' vacuum hose to a Crevice Took glued to the underside of the table with silicone cement.+

Just from out of the blue, I wonder if having dissatisfaction with the dust blower correlates with running the saw at a very low speed habitually? I've used the Old Delta, Newer Delta, and the DeWalt (my current saw) and I find the dust blower quite adequate when running the saw at at least 1/3 of its maximum speed. Under that, the blower don't blow.

Nice job there! I have a vacuum on my saw too. I also made a dust collector for an ould saw from a bathroom extraction fan in a plastic pail with drier hose to the bottom end of my scrolling table.
The problem with blowers is they don't get rid of the dust they just move it.

Default Inexpensive Blower Tube mounting

An inexpensive way to make your blower tubing stay in place is to strap it to a piece of coat hanger wire with electrical ties. The wire is flexible enough to move yet rigid enough to keep your blower tube in the right area.
