Any-Which-Way Dust Blower
The factory-supplied dust blower for my scroll saw wouldn’t stay in position, so I replaced it with snap-loc coolant hose (see Sources, below). Now I can position the hose anywhere I want it, including up and out of the way.
To attach the hose to the saw, I snapped on a connector and pressed it into a piece of 1/2-in. copper tube. The copper tube was a little large for the saw’s blower fitting so I caulked the joint and tightened the tube down with a small machine screw.
