I just finished setting up the 5 Pro and I’m running into a little annoyance with how close the sweepy dust boot 2.0 port is to the spindle. A normal, center-aligned, 2.5 to 4" adapter doesn’t fit. So I’ve had to rig up temporary fix with a short 2.5" flex pipe extension to connect my 4" hose. It’s a little floppy right now and not how I had imagined the set up being. Probably workable, but I’d like to find a better solution.
I’m having a hard time finding many posts here relating to this. Any thoughts or other examples on how you’ve connected your 4" hoses?
Get some rigid 2.5" elbows instead of the current flex pipe set up I have now to make the offset. I just worry about the load at the joint where it would connect to the sweepy. Could be completely fine also, I’m not experienced enough yet to know.
4) Looks awesome. Need a little more experience before I’d try this out. Probably good solution for others.
5) That’s what I currently have set up - about a 10-12" extension. It’s just floppy and introduces unnecessary 90-deg bends in certain positions, like when located in the center and the 4" hose length increases a few inches with respect to when it’s located in the corners and the hose is stretched.
6) Saw this, but couldn’t really justify the $150 price point right now, especially since the 5 Pro came with sweepy v2. Definitely open to a 4" version if there are plans to make one in the future.
I know, but without an actual 4" dust boot everyone’s options are limited, no? Not an ideal solution, but I think it should be fine for now if I don’t have another machine running/port open taking CFMs.
