ROCKLER introduces the Dust Right Bench Sweep, a funnel-shaped receptacle that catches dust, dirt and debris swept off the end of a workbench or table.
The bench sweep can be used passively, allowing gravity to pull dust and debris down into a bin, or actively, connected via 2-1/2” hose to a powered dust collection system. The hinged lid acts as a backstop in the passive setup and can be closed to function as a blast gate in the active setup. An optional plastic grid can be left in to filter out large chunks of debris and scrap as well as stray hardware or fasteners. It sells for $29.99. For more, visit www.rockler.com.
