    Lathe Dust Collection Snake

    I have had dust collection at the lathe in various forms. This is the latest version.

    Can you guess why the "S" is in the hose for this picture?

    Looks like it does the job. So for skew work for the S?

    AS I'm no turner, I guess that the "S" is to collect the shavings directly from the tool as they will fly inside it on their own, hence improving the effectiveness of the aspiration.

    What I do not know is what is that pillow behind it is for, to take quick naps resting on the lathe when you get tired?
    Best regards,

    THE PILLOW

    OK I will try again. I was having problems earlier.

    Two "Wrongs" on the "S" guess. I will post the answer Tuesday. I picked Tuesday to give a couple non-weekend days for some more guesses.

    Toni asked about the "Pillow" behind the lathe. Some pics will explain the Pillow easier than words.

    Enjoy,

    Either because you wanted it that way or some reason you'll make me feel stupid about not knowing...the guessing begins!

    Simple! The snake creates a vortex extending beyond the immediate end effect of the hose.

    All right, it is a dust cover for your mask. I should have guessed, but it fooled me completely. Thanks Jim.

    I think it was Allen who paraphrased Will Rogers, "I never met a nap I didn't like."
