The Rockler Dust Right® Dust Separator turns any shop vacuum with a 2-1/4'' ID outlet into a 2-stage dust extractor and chip separator. When used with most power tools and shop vacuums, the Dust Right® Separator creates a vortex effect that captures sawdust, wood chips, and other debris before it enters your vacuum, preventing loss of suction power caused by a clogged vacuum filter. The cyclonic air flow causes most wood dust particles and other materials that are heavier than air to fall into the bucket. Less debris reaching your vacuum means far less need to clean or replace the filter, a very messy task. The five-caster base makes the unit exceptionally stable and easy to maneuver around the shop. The hoses connect firmly to the in/out ports, preventing unintentional disconnections.


  • 10-gallon bucket is lightweight for easy emptying and translucent so you can monitor its contents
  • Holds twice the capacity of most competing products
  • Maximum performance can be expected when using the Dust Right® Separator in woodworking or general shop cleaning applications
  • Includes approximately 36'' of flex-form hose to connect to your shop vacuum

Package includes the Dust Right® 2-1/2'' Expandable Shop Vacuum Hose Kit for a large working range and compact storage!

The 2-1/2'' diameter hose in this kit is made of an amazingly elastic, flexible polymer that stretches from approximately 2' to 12' in length, then collapses back into a compact stack for storage. This allows you to reach most areas of your shop, without the hassle of a long, cumbersome hose. As you move closer to your shop vacuum, the suction takes up excess slack, which helps prevent tangling and tripping. Thanks to the flexibility of the hose, coupled with the included swivel connectors, it won't kink or bind. The hose weighs 30% less than previous versions, and is offered in a blue translucent color. With the two included swivel fittings, it easily connects to your shop vacuum, optional Dust Right® accessories and many dust ports. Each swivel fitting has a larger end (2-1/2'' OD), which fits into the hose, and a smaller end (2-1/4'' OD), which fits into a standard ''Shop Vac.'' Two metal hose clamps are also included for securing the fittings to the hose.

Cold Weather Tip: Cold temperatures will cause the hose to contract. If you find the hose is too tight or stiff, try warming the hose/workshop.
