It's nice that this locks onto the sander. But on my DeWalt, a simple coupler works pretty well to attach a hose to the sander.

The problem is that the black piece (show in the picture, between the sander and the printed adapter) is built so that a variety of different sized hoses can attach right into the back. Because the smallest size is so small (less than 1-1/4, it appears,) the vacuum can't pull very much air through and the sides of the bucket on my dust collector collapse in a bit. With that middle piece still in the equation, this setup wouldn't be much different. It would be nice to have a replacement for that black piece – one that only accepts larger hoses and lets more air through.

Thanks for creating this... I have made an adapter (OK not pretty!) so it fits a miele vaccum hose. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1585822 I have referenced you in this - hope this is OK.

so, judging by the picture, i'm guessing this goes to a 2.5 inch hose? I need something to go to a 1.25 hose, but I'm wondering if I could modify this to work.

Nice and in the creative commons, thank you.
