Dust Bag Hold-Up

Reattaching the bag on my dust collector is a job that takes three hands. It's nearly impossible 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.
