Thread: 1" Thick wall diffuser in 7/8" thin wall blade?

    Default 1" Thick wall diffuser in 7/8" thin wall blade?

    Hi All, I seem to remember seeing or reading somewhere that the blade diffuser for the 1" Thick wall blades will also fit the 7/8" thin wall blades. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Yes, kind of. Some of the 7/8" bladestock stocked by TCSS has a slightly smaller ID than a 1" thick-walled. They work just fine, but sometimes I have had to sand the 1" thick walled adapter, sand the outside with 400 grit sandpaper until it fits inside the 7/8" blade. Clean the diffuser before test fitting it. Sanding the diffuser will only aid in your diffusion anyway. I have built 6 7/8" blades using this method. I have also built transwhite, and not used strip diffuser. Good luck.

    Thanks Tom! Once again I see you as a master and I, but a padawan.

    I recently ordered a trans-white 7/8" blade and asked for them to ship it with 1" thick walled diffuser in it. It fit for me.

    Order them at the same time and we will make sure they fit.. order them separate and there is a chance they wont.
