yes. I started on a design like that. did not have the triple hose though. If I had finished, I would use it. But I got impatient. It really is pretty easy to just pull it into the vac.

That looks a lot like mine, Nancie, including the square kitty litter bucket (mine is Fresh Step, LOL).  Except for the plastic bag on the hose.  :-)  I'll be putting one on next time I use it.

I like the way you reinforced the hose couplings on the bucket.  That will be another good upgrade.

Could we/I get you to post a couple more pics of the hose assembly out of the saw.  The part that is showing on the top left of the pic.

Question:  Did you post two pics or just one, cause all I am seeing is one.

Of all the things I've lost..I miss my mind the most.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Sorry, I don't have pics, but if it's like mine, it just has a normal shop vac hose with a standard wand attached.  Tony has made his own with a more narrow throat and tip (better for getting in tight spots and corners), but I just use the standard angled wand.

Sorry, oil sucker is in Arkansas and I am in Louisiana.  Won't be there for acouple of weeks.
I reinforced the bucket lid with plexi, otherwise the suction will cause it to split.  Also, the square bucket didn't collapse like the round bucket did.
