Your next project just got easier!

A healthy and efficient workshop is no longer something to shrug off. It’s absolutely necessary if you hope to have a long and healthy retirement life. Fine airborne dust is far more dangerous than the tools we work with. Unlike a tool that can cause immediate pain, ingested dust sneaks up on us so that by the time we realize the irreversible pain, it’s too late.

Take the time. Connect your shop with hose, piping and fittings like this 6” Y fitting. Y-fittings are the preferred method for connecting hose and tubing together when building a system because Y-fittings have the least amount of restriction to air flow. Compare it to an intersection on the road. It’s much easier to come up to speed on a merge lane than it is at a traffic intersection. For this reason, we don’t offer similar T-fittings. They just don’t work well.

Can be easily connected to the following fittings:

13005 Dust Cap
13041 Blast Gate Tapered M/F
13042 Blast Gate F/Threaded
13066 Blast Gate F/F
13093 Splicer 4” to 4”
13410 Adapter to hose
and 4” Hose

This fitting is slightly large and the fitting mate will have to be heated to install.

This Y with 6" female and two 4" male branches usually comes with several dust collectors. It attaches directly to the fan housing.

You might decide to connect a 6" metal tube directly to your dust collector and run 6" branches around your shop.

This fitting, when mounted on the ends of your 6" lines, is perfect to drop the diameter down to two 4" branches exactly where you need them... on the end of the line.

I have my own shop set up this way but I used the smaller 5" duct and the #13068 5 x 4 x 4 Y. If you decide to use 6" duct and this 6 x 4 x 4 Y and you want to press a 4" female blast gates onto the 4" branches, use a heat gun to heat up the female side of the gates before pressing them onto the Y. This Y has 4" branches that are a little larger than usual so the gates don't slip on without heating. As mentioned on the #13068 page, I did exactly this and I have the most solid connections you can imagine.
