I bought it to use on...
I bought it to use on a portable 12" disc sander that has a cast iron odd-sized dust port. Simply found the right sized step, cut the rest off, on my mitersaw and used duct tape to connect. Stays put and sucks about 98% of the dust into my collector. Everything I wanted and expected. Cheap and simple to use. What more could I want?

Delivered as ordered and worked fine. Had to make a few trims to get it to fit properly, but it does the job!

I have cut two of these to fit my planer and miter saw dust port connections, both of which are odd sized. The 4 inch end fits perfectly onto my 4 inch dust collection system flexible hoses. It does take a few cuts to get the size just right but then they work very well.

Used it to size down for my Mikita planner which has a 3" port. Had to saw it several times to get it right but once I did I glued it on the Makita and it worked as you cannot find a 3" to 4" fitting.

Rubber would be better, adaptability to belt/disc sander problematic.
While the design would allow for adaptability connecting to various dust port sizes, my particular issue involved connecting to a Harbor Freight 4x36 belt sander with 6" sanding disc. Were the unit constructed of rubber (like Dust Rite 4" to 2 1/4" adapter), and shorter in overall length, this would have been decent solution. As is, it required further fabrication to not only hold it in place, but sanding to ensure a semi tight fit.

I wanted to use the product as a transition on a work station for power carving. Be aware it does not fit into any 4 inch dust collector fitting on into the end of a hose.

Useless
Hard plastic without flexibility. Requires either purchasing a rubber boot with hose clamps to attach to any tool or hose, or using duct tape. Better to purchase the flexible boot reducer.

The inside and outside diameters are...
The inside and outside diameters are not matched well. The 4" is the outside diameter which will fit nothing but a hose or another inline connector. The same is true for the other end, so as it stands this product by itself is useless.  I couldn't wait for another shipment or take the time to drive to the store so I hillbilly fixed it with duct tape.

Hopefully, the dust will no longer pile up around my belt/disc sander and its unusually-sized dust ports!

Putting together a dust collection system is truly a pain, or at least I have made it that way. None of the local hardware/big box stores come even close to having the correct fittings. I am hoping this reducer will finally complete my system.
