Rockler Woodworking and Hardware introduced a new dust-collection conversion port to connect 2-1/4" shop vacuum ports and hoses to any 2-1/2" dust fitting or power tool dust port.
The conversion port includes a 2-1/2" metal hose clamp that holds the rubber union in place once it is cupped around the selected fitting or port. The rubber union allows for small discrepancies in the exact size of fittings without sacrificing an air-tight seal when clamped, according to Rockler.
"It will save time and frustration when people need to quickly switch their shop vacuum between different tools and fittings,” vice president of product development Steve Krohmer said in a statement. "It's now easier than ever to incorporate dust collection throughout the shop."
The conversion port retails for $6.99. For information, visit www.rockler.com.
