For the most part, adapters are versatile, allowing very dissimilar fixed ports to play well together. Unfortunately, sometimes adapters are inconvenient. They can be heavy, clumsy, or insecure. In this case, all 3 maladies elicited a custom dust shroud for the Kreg Pocket Hole Master System ensuing in a lightweight and secure direct connection to my Festool CT dust extractor (or any 35mm hose).
If you too could use this adapter (as it should fit any 35mm hose), download the part file below and send it to Shapeways or any other local rapid prototyper.
UPDATE: By request, the following link also contains left and right versions to accommodate Festool’s smaller 27 mm hose. Just download the files with the “27″ suffix in the file name.
