|Dust Bag Hold-Up
Reattaching the bag on my dust collector is a job that takes three hands. You
have to hold the bag around the flange of the collector while attaching the metal
strap that holds it in place.
To make the job easier, I simply fished a piece of elastic waistband through the
hem of the dust bag using a safety pin, like in Fig. 1. (Elastic waistband can
be purchased at most fabric supply stores.)
After gathering the hem of the bag around the elastic, I tied the ends of the
waistband together, as in Fig. 2.
You can see how easy it is to secure the strap around the bag in Fig 3.
