Drill Press Dust Collector



This is a drill press dust collecting jig. It is designed to allow the dust collection port to sit at different heights depending on the placement of the work piece.

Step 4: Connectors

Create a tube assembly that will connect to a dust collection hose and a second hose if the drill press allows.
