Rockler Bridges Another Dust Collection Gap
New Conversion Port Simplifies Connections
Between Shop Vacuums, Fittings and Tool Ports
MEDINA, MN (December 15, 2011) - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a new dust collection Conversion Port, making it quick and easy to connect 2-1/4" shop vacuum ports and hoses to any 2-1/2" dust fitting or power tool dust port. The larger end features a rubber union that easily slides on and creates a tight seal. Switching your shop vacuum connection quickly without sacrificing suction has never been this easy.
"It will save time and frustration when people need to quickly switch their shop vacuum between different tools and fittings." explained Steve Krohmer, Vice President of product development. "It's now easier than ever to incorporate dust collection throughout the shop."
The new 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. The opposite end of the Conversion Port fits the nozzle of the shop vacuum or vacuum hose. This keeps the suction of the vacuum and the efficiency of the dust collection at as high of a level as possible.
The 2-1/2" to 2-1/4" Conversion Port (49887) retails for $6.99. It is available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler's independent resellers, Rockler.com, or in the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit www.rockler.com or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
