Turn any shop vacuum with a 2-1/4'' ID outlet into a 2-stage dust and chip separator. When used with most power tools and shop vacuums, the Dust Right® Separator captures sawdust, wood chips, and other debris before it enters your vacuum, preventing the loss of suction power caused by a clogged vacuum filter. The five-caster base makes it exceptionally stable and easy to maneuver around the shop. Plus, hoses connect inside the in/out ports, preventing unintentional disconnections. The Dust Right® Separator creates a cyclonic air flow that causes most wood dust particles and other materials that are heavier than air to separate, preventing them from being passed to the vacuum. The vortex effect that is created prevents the loss of suction caused by prematurely clogged filters.


Features:

  • 10-gallon translucent bucket is easy to empty and easy to tell when it's full
  • Holds twice the capacity of competitors' products
  • Maximum performance can be expected when using the Dust Right® Separator in woodworking or general shop cleaning applications
  • Includes flex-form hose that is approximately 36'' long for connection to your shop vacuum

Included Vacuum Harness straps vacuum and separator together so you can roll them around without tipping, tangling or dislodging hoses!

Dust separators are a no-brainer for getting the most out of your shop vacuum dust collection system. If only they weren't so...well...''separated'' from the vacuum. That's where the Dust Right® Vacuum Harness ties it all together. It consists of a central support bracket with straps on either side that wrap around both your vacuum and the Dust Right® Dust Separator. Once secured together, you can roll the entire vac/separator combo around with far less chance of tipping, catching on obstacles, or tangling or detaching the various hoses.


Features:

  • Heavy-duty adjustable straps are long enough to accommodate most shop vacuums
  • Straps are height adjustable so you can determine where the strap will wrap, ensuring a tight fit
  • Quick-release buckles let you easily detach separator or vacuum for easy chip disposal
  • No-mar feet on bracket are adjustable to fit the specific contours of your vacuum
  • 3/4'' holes on top of bracket let you add 3/4'' dowels for shop-made accessories

Where has this thing been all of my life?! Simply amazing!!! It blows me away how well it works. I went from a simple shop vac setup to the dust right separator inline with a shop vac. All chips and 99% of the fine dust is captured in this. So great!

Wish I saw this first
I’ve also have a small Dust Deputy cyclone. This is a much better system. With the DD I had to build a cart, buy a bucket, modify the bucket, find hoses that connect everything, It was a pain , and cost more than Rockler.

Dust Right
Works constantly separating the sawdust from regular debris. Saves on vacuum bags by not filling with sawdust and allows me to use the sawdust for mulch in my garden.

Great Idea Great Design/Execution
This is a winner. Keeps your vac running at peak performance by keeping all the sawdust and debris from clogging the filter. Have been using it for a couple of days and would recommend this to anyone that uses a shop vac in his shop with any regularity. Well worth the price.

Used it immediately and wow what a difference. This set up makes the separation of the misc. dust and wood chips so easy to manage vs. my shop vac alone.

The combination of these three products everything as advertised.
I just received the separator, the adapters and the product to hook them together. I have use it in a very small workspace and without this combination I cannot clean my shop as efficiently. It is much superior to the shopvac that I have by itself.

Great product.

Separator: great. Harness: abomination.
On brand for Rocklers blue plastic 'you could have made this for 1/10th the price but who has the time' shop aids.

The separator works as advertised. Would have been nice to have 90 degree connections, since the hose will always be at that angle; I could get these connectors from the hardware store for $5, but since I could have built this entire kit with $15 from the hardware store my pride couldn't handle the trip and I'll just tape the tubes if they fail.

The harness...
when I say that this is the most convoluted, over-engineered, under-thought out, committee designed, paid by the piece, marvel of space age complexity victimized yet further by the lobbyist overlords that dominate even the best intentions of Rockler's engineering department...
understand, for perspective, that I work for the government.

You could achieve the same effect with a cutoff 2x4 and some duct tape. You could get a better effect than this kit, in less time, with two scraps of 2x4 and a little trimming on a bandsaw. If you insisted on a strap to look #professional on your youtube channel, I can theorize maybe wanting as many as three points of adjustment for the entire arrangement.
This monstrosity has 16.
I literally design and utilize, on a daily basis, equipment using 1" nylon web and fastex type connection points. Connecting this thing nearly defeated me, wasting 20 minutes of a 30 minute workshop session and leaving me alone in my (admittedly sawdust free) garage, a doubt ridden shadow of my former self. It was not over quickly. I did not enjoy it.

Bottom line:
Separator works great.
Harness... see me after class.

Dust separator
I did not find the dust separator very effective. Much of the chips etc went into my shop vacuum. The harness was totally useless and dis not attach to the unit very well. It seemed like a good idea.... but failed.

Mahlon L on Apr 26, 2018
If it works as advertised and I have no doubt it will it is the best package price for a debris separator. Most importantly I trust Rockler to provide quality products and very competitive pricing.
