    Ronald nice video. You can remove he adapter from your hose and screw the hose directly to the hood, can't you?

    Thanks, Gerald. Although you can screw the hose directly to the hood, it would be very cumbersome in my set-up. In my set-up, I move the 4" hose among machines (band saw, drum sander, planer, router table, etc.). In addition, I disconnect the 4" hose and use it directly for clean-up around the lathe as well as when I roll the lathe against the garage wall when done using it. Thus, it is important that I can quickly connect/disconnect the 4" hose. Also, if you directly screw-in the hose into the hood, the hose will naturally tend to unscrew into its untwisted shape. Thus, you have to pre-twist the hose several turns so that it will twist on properly without tending to unscrew itself.

    If you have a set-up where the 4" hose is dedicated to the lathe, then you are correct that directly attaching it to the hood would work fine without the need for an adapter.

    Ok try another route. Cut a piece of 4" and get a adapter that will fit into your existing adapter . Screw the hose on the setup and the new adapter into the hose and then you will have the quick connect you need
