Need Intake Piece For My Dust Collector
The intake on my 3 HP double bag DC has a 'hub' I'll call it, with three connectors / couplings angling out, but I need just one intake pointing straight out. Anyone know where I can get different style intake hubs? Mine would need a 5 7/8 ID, is that a standard size for DCs?

Can't you just attach 6" duct to the dust collector stub? That's what I'm going to do with one of mine when I set it up in a new situation.
If there is no existing stub as it appears in the drawing then use a take off ring.

Any sheet metal shop can roll you the required part. Cheaper than paying freight on a ready made part form afar.
A long time ago I bought a cheap Chinese 3 in one sheet metal brake, shear, slip roll. Not great but has been useful for improving dust pickup hoods, making transition parts, and some non-dust collection things around the shop. I bought a thin sheet of steel from the local fabricators.

what size hose do you want to attach? what size is the hub that the 3 in 1 "hub" attaches to. I have a temp. 110 two bag collector. You can go to the single base hub and reduce it to your size, or just put caps or closed slide gates on the two of of three you are not using. The advantage of the 3 in 1 is to attach three hoses to one collector. And have slide gates to open for individual machines. This is typically a portable machine. If this is not what you are looking for, maybe more info would helpful. You could take the "hub" piece and hose and try to find a part for the transition at a home improvement store. I have an old reliant bag collector with a 4 inch hose attached to one opening to move around, and two plastic slide gates stuck in the other two openings to block losses from the 3 in 1 "hub". Best wishes. if a pic would help let me know!
