Hi does anyone know the size of the dust port is it 4"
Nope, about 50 - 60mm. I'll measure it tomorrow if you need to know.
I made a new dust chute with a vertical 4" outlet.

Yeah the port is stupidly small for that kind of machine...

I've got the TPT125, my dust extraction is piped around in 63mm rigid pipe with blast gates. I found that a turn of self adhesive draft excluder around the port on the thicknesser allowed a piece of rigid 63mm pipe to be a good seal when pushed onto it, the flexible to the blast gate then fits directly on that.

You can blame Health and Safety.
A 100 mm port would allow a darwinian reject to stick their hand in and get their fingers chopped off.
Thats why all machines nowadays have undersized or partly blocked ports.
I cut a bigger hole in my dust hood and glued 63 mm in. no blockages at all.

My Metabo that I bought a few months ago has a strange setup. It actually has both a larger 100mm port, but permanently captured within in it is a smaller (I think around 60mm) port. I wondered why this was.

My axminster 350 bandsaw has a 100 mm port at the bottom of the lower wheel cabinet. All well and good, but an silly person could put his hand inside and get caught by the lower wheel. So they welded a steel plate across 3/4" of the hole.
Result? no hands in danger, no dust removed. NFB.

My little Titan bandsaw had a cross of the sheet steel casing left in the in the port reducing its area by about 20% until it met a small angle grinder and file.

Robbo,

I know this is an old thread, but do you have any images of your chute? I have the TPT125 and I now have a HVLP dust system so I want to fit a 100mm port.

Cheers,

Rich
