I was impressed with the performance of this product. I have added the quick release to my planer and plan to add it to my table saw. I have an Oneida air collection system and this really helped with clean up.

The floor sweep is a nice size for cleaning around equipment. The grate to keep big pieces from sucking up and clogging up the lines is a good idea, however curls from the lathe tend to clog the grate. Overall a good product.
Works well for sweeping the floor.

Being able to use the handle...

Being able to use the handle portion to connect to dust ports would make this system great and not just ordinary. I have a small workshop and need to roll planers, joiners from their storage position to use. This hose handle would be a great aid as a floor cleaner and a portable vacuum connection to a standard dust port. It makes not sense to have the handle a non-standard size. The person who designed this tool was not very experienced with a woodworkers shop needs.Editor's note: We have to consider tool ports on woodworking machines. As much as we'd like them to be, the fact is they are NOT standard in size. There are slight variations in size from manufacturer to manufacturer and tool to tool. Note that our Dust Right Tool Ports are not an all plastic mold. They are designed specifically with a rubber boot as an integral part of them, which gives the flex needed to fit the variations of port sizing manufacturers produce. To secure that flexible rubber boot to the molded plastic part of the fitting a minimum depth of lip is needed for a proper grip of rubber to plastic. By offering the Dust Right Tool Ports our designers have come up with a way to bring the non-uniform sizing of machine ports to a uniform size so that one can easily use the Dust Right Handle to switch from machine to machine.

First, I would like to say this is a very great system. I bought it mainly to connect to my Dewalt Planer, which is about 15' from my Delta 1.5 hp Dust Collector. I bought the 4 X 21' hose and the floor sweep system.Secondly, in actual use the hose does not stretch 21' only 18' but if you include the floor sweep system it is 21'. This works great even though it is heavy but by far better than hauling out the shop vac to clean the floor.Third Tips and tricks: Rather than getting the Dust Right Tool Port I used a 4 schedule 20 PVC drain pipe cut 1 ½ long and cut out a ½ section perpendicular to the length. Slip this over your existing collector outlets at the machine and insert the dust right handle section over this. You will need to use both hands to get it on but it works. This works well with standard 4 L's and Y's etc. If you use this on all of your equipment, you can glue a piece of this on at each station. I tried this on the Dewalt Planer and a standard plastics L's. If you buy a 10' length of PVC it cost less than $14.00 for the tool port, and you can use what ever is left for you dust collection system.Next, I had a piece of 6 PVC pipe and I cut it 4' long. I cut a 4 ½ slot down its length and attached it to my Delta 1.5 hp dust collector in the horizontal direction. This is what I use to store the hose. The slot allows me to easily pull out the hose and retract it when not in use. Necessity is the father of invention.
