Pen turners and spindle turners will instantly recognize the efficiency and utility of our Dust Right® Lathe Dust Collection System. The centerpiece of the system is our proprietary C-shaped ''dust scoop,'' which wraps around spindle turnings to catch dust right at the source. Add to that a highly adjustable solid steel boom arm support system and a flex-form hose to connect to your dust collection system, and you have an all-in-one package that will dramatically reduce the amount of dust in the air and on the floors of your shop. The boom arm assembly can be easily slid along the bed of your lathe to collect dust wherever you are cutting, and is height adjustable within a 15'' range. It can also be adjusted in and out along the slot in the plate, and pivoted at three points to provide an incredible variety of positioning options.


Features:

  • 9'' long dust scoop surrounds your spindle turnings for efficient, effective dust collection
  • Support system is constructed from heavy-duty steel for rigidity and durability
  • Included flex form hose fits the dust scoop without a hose clamp, and moves easily as the scoop is repositioned; opposite end fits standard 2-1/2'' O.D. fittings
  • System is compatible with most lathes

Package includes Lathe Chip Deflector to help redirect chips and debris away from the user!

The Rockler Lathe Chip Deflector helps to redirect chips and debris away from the turner's hands, arms, torso and face. When positioned correctly, the chips are guided into the dust scoop on the Dust Right® Lathe Dust Collection System. The result is less mess and less time spent cleaning up after turning. The deflector attaches to the post on your Lathe Dust Collection System via a sturdy steel attachment arm that is height adjustable with the included 3-star knob. From the attachment arm, an 8'' articulating arm lets you position the shatter-resistant polycarbonate deflector in front of the workpiece, and angle it for optimum effectiveness.

Loving it!!
I love this thing, I am so glad I purchased it, the one thing I didnt expect was the size, this thing might work with larger items but if your going to work on Bowls, you need something bigger.

Dust collection system.

Has revolutionized my dust collection.
This is a very solid pair of tools. I bought these separately rather than as a package deal, but they work together great. If I had to be picky and complain, I'd say that the hose sometimes gets in the way of the end of the banjo while turning, but that's pretty minor. When I turn acrylic, I connect this up to my shop vac, and when I turn wood, I use my 4" dust collector, to keep the plastic separate from the wood (which I burn), and not only dust but a lot of the shavings get collected. I won't turn spindles or pens without this !

Pen Turners. Dust port
Love the arm but it still is a little off. Would be better if it would give more reach. Hose to dust port is too short. Still, it does collect most of the chips especially with the clear face shield.

First time use, IT works!
Just learning to turn for the first time again in several years. Decided to go with a bigger dust collection system overall and this fits the bill for my lathe.

will the Dust Right® Lathe Dust Collection System plus Lathe Chip Deflector fit a Rikon mini lathe?

Will this item work with a powermatic 3520 lathe?
grandman on Dec 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a Powermatic 3520 and can tell you first hand that the Dust Right® Lathe Dust Collection System is an excellent addition. It does exactly what it was designed to do. I especially appreciate it when turning deer antler. I'm hoping the chip deflector will be available by itself soon.
What size is the dust collector hose and what size of connector would i need to fit it to a 2 1/2 inch dust pipe?
Birdhouse on May 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The hose will fit standard 2 1/2" OD dust fittings. If you are using a 2 1/2" hose to connect to this you will need Rockler 2-1/2'' Diameter Splicer for Dust Hose. If you are connecting a 4" hose to this you will need 4" To 2-1/2" Reducer.

Does this fit the Excelcior mini lathe?
John A on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the dust right lathe dust collection system with the lathe chip deflector attached to my Excelcior mini lathe. It was easy to install and it typically works well for me.
Is it available without chip deflector? I saw the ad without chip deflector, for $39.99 on your web site few days ago.

BEST ANSWER: The collector alone is Rockler item 52981
