DIY washing machine saw dust collection hose

how to take a washing machine drain hose and make it catch saw dust on a miter saw

miter saw dust pile
Sometime last year I realized the miter saw had a place to attach a hose to for catching saw dust. I looked around for the proper hose a few times and then forgot about it.

I was walking by our junked out washing machine by the barn today and noticed the drain hose was about the same size as the exit point on the miter saw.

It was also the right length for our current set up. A short piece of duct tape was all it took to secure the hose to the saw.

Genius! I love this kind of re-purposing.

We'd been looking for a hose that would fit into the miter saw for months. (Well, we looked for a few days months ago and then I forgot about it.) So I was highly impressed when Mark dug one out of the weeds that worked perfectly!
