I built this dust collection attachment for that Dewalt DW733 planer I
mentioned here on rec.woodworking yesterday that I got at a local pawn shop.
Could have spent $35 on a plastic one from Dewalt but it doesn't have a 4"
I suppose I made some assumptions from the brief product description. I
ordered one the day I picked up the planer and should be here this week.
Probably, I'll send it on back. Thanks for the info..
Mine came with the sheetmetal one but the 4" port isn't tapered. As a result
it is next to impossible to use a quick connect. I attached an extra gate with
a piece of hose and the quick connect fits okay now.

Let me clarify that a tad.
The plastic one has a 4" port, but also came with an adapter to reduce that
to 2.5 (or whatetever shopvac size is)
If the product description said 2.5... well then you probably read that
I bought a metal one, with a 4" outlet and a 4"-->2" adaptor, last
Friday at a local tool store for $8.99.
The metal version has a more centered outlet and picks up chips better
than the plastic version.
