Rockler Clear Dust Collection Pipe

Item #
90% of 100

Piping is more efficient than hose for dust collection over long distances. This clear plastic piping comes in 36" lengths to help get your dust collection from point A to point B. Use 2-1/2" dust hose or #36973 coupler to join lengths of pipe, or to connect pipe to other 2-1/2" fittings.

Woodworking Experience:
Excellent foundation for my system.
These clear 2-1/2" pipes make an excellent foundation for my dust collection system. Used in conjunction with the couplers and hold down straps they easily form the main conduit of my system. Easy to cut to fit and I like the "see thru" aspect to make sure the system is completely purged.

Woodworking Experience:
used to go from dust right handle to floor
I wanted to hand hold the dust right handle and extend suction to the floor and sweep around my radial arm saw. The 3ft length was perfect for me and all fittings slipped together to make what I wanted. I can use crevicing tools upholstery brushes and all the other 2.5 fittings available I need.

I believe your recommendation that the pipe offers less resistance to air flow than the flex tubing.

Lydia L on Aug 26, 2015
I used this to hook up the shop vac to my band saw. The clear pipe goes under my radial arm saw table for easy access to the shop vac. My shop is small and the band saw and radial arm saw share the same workbench but I was able to extract the dust from the band saw handily by diverting it along the pipe under the radial arm saw.

I've been looking for something like this for a while. And like a Sasquatch, i had been using duct tape (Thanks Dave Piccuito!) with no love. <br />Sine the Drunken Woodworker recommended them, I had to try it out.

Roger P on Jan 14, 2019
what is the inside dimensions of these pipes? Can they be split in half?
BobWoolf on Dec 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The O.D. is 2 1/2" and the I.D. is 2 3/8".

To cut them I would place mastic tape around the tube - hold it in a vise with plastic jaws and with the "cut line" close to the vise I would use a hack saw with tight tension on the "fine" blade.

Use a belt sander to gently smooth off the cut - do not over heat the tube or it will "melt" at the edge. A sanding block or a round file can also be used for this purpose - slower but easier on the tune.

Have fun.
Is this pipe 100% Polycarbonate?
Chris W on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I Don't think so, it is really brittle and polycarbonate isn't, in my experience.but I'm not sure. It definitely worked for what I used it for, which was a CNC machine. It connects the dust boot to the dust collection system.
Is this clear pipe available in 4" OD?
Anthony B on Mar 17, 2019
What is the wall thickness of this pipe?
John V on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The wall thickness of this product is 3/32" thick. It is very nice and easy to work with and is great for dust collection to various tools. I hope it works as well for you as it has for me.
Is this a hard or flex tube?
Orlando A on Nov 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Definitely not flex. I would describe it as rigid but strong.
Need to ask if I can adapt this to my shopvac? I clean gutters and seeing the leaves helps for a tho rough job.
Ben R on Jan 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I was going to do the same. How did it work
Will this fit the shop vac brand dust collection system?
B on Dec 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 2 1/2 inch system
I am using this pipe to build underwater fishing lights. After ordering 2 1/2" PVC caps I realized the OD is way off. Where can I find caps that I can use to seal this pipe?
Keith J on Jun 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: With the help of the of local supplier, I found that schedule 40 PVC 2" (2.0") couplings plugs, and fittings fit-up reasonably well to 2 1/2". I suggest you try the 2" PVC schedule 40. You can order Schedule 40 Clear PVC from several suppliers on line.
