The Tale of Two Dust Hose Kits
Hooking up tools with small ports to dust collection has never been easier thanks to the Flexiport dust hose kits from Dust Right. Both kits do the same thing, but do they perform the same? Watch the video to learn more!
Dust Right FlexiPort Power Tool Hose Kit, 3′ to 12′ Expandable
This new kit from Rockler includes two sizes of flexible rubber dust ports—1”, 1-1/2”—that flex to fit on almost any tool, plus a 2-1/4” port that connects to most shop vacuums and dust separators. The two tool-end ports are designed with a slight elbow that helps lift the dust hose off your work. All ports thread securely into the included premium stretch hose that can expand from 3’ to 12’.
Dust Right FlexiPort Power Tool Hose Kit, 12′ Fixed-Length
The confusing array of non-standardized dust ports on handheld tools makes it hard to connect a dust hose. This kit from Rockler solves the problem. It includes four sizes of pliable rubber couplers, which flex and stretch to fit onto a wide variety of ports, whether oval, rectangular, circular or otherwise. On the other end of the hose, a rigid 2-1/4” port connects to most shop vacuums and dust separators.
The Woodsmith Store Fine Tools Dust Collection Hose Hook
