"The older ShopVac brand hoses with the 12" solid ends are all you need for the K5. They slip right into the port on the K5 & pull all the chips out. I've never had a problem with mine using that older hose. I also have it hooked to a…"

I have recently purchased a K5 to upgrade from my K3 and have noted that the vacuum port on the k5 is impossible to get a vacuum hose on it due to it being so close to the assembly.  The port I had to purchase separate for my k3 was farther out from the body of the jig and would allow a vacuum with no problem.Is anyone else have this problem?See More
