Default Re: Using Canned Air For Removing Dust

I think Dyson must have used some 1" iron pipe as the model for their connectors. I made an adaptor for my Dyson from a piece of 1" BSP iron pipe, a perfect sliding fit in the socket. 1" iron pipe was a loose fits in a piece of plastic waster pipe, so I shimmed it with some plastic sheeting that I get from a model shop and fixed it in place with some Plastic Padding, trimmed some of the plastic pipe away, and filed a groove in the iron pipe so that the adaptor locks into place on the Dyson hose. The bore of the plastic waste pipe is a good fit to the outer diameter of the corrugated plastic hose I use for dust extraction for my router.
