Routing dovetails produces large amounts of dust and chips. That's why Leigh has introduced the VRS Vacuum and Router Support to help eliminate the problem at the source. The Leigh VRS1200 connects easily to the Porter-Cable 4210, 4212 and 4216 dovetail jigs, and works whether you're routing through dovetails, half-blind dovetails or box joints. Since the dust hose connects to the jig, it frees your router from heavy, awkward hoses. In addition to dust collection, the VRS1200 also provides additional support for the router along the length of the dovetail jig. This helps ensure that the router stays flat so the pins and tails will align properly. No jig modifications are required, and installation takes only 15 minutes.

Features:

  • Easily attaches to Porter-Cable 4200 series dovetail jigs (models 4210, 4212 and 4216)
  • Includes swiveling attachment and adapters for 1-1/2'', 2'' and 2-1/2'' hoses
  • No jig modification required—all necessary parts are included
  • Secured by internal tension springs so it's removable without tools if you need to change templates
  • Constructed from durable aluminum and ABS plastic

Works great!
This product does exactly what I expected it to do, and does it well. Setup took a little bit of fiddling to get things right... but once set up, it did not interfere with smooth operation of the dovetail jig and caught 99% of the dust. Recommended.

VRS1200 Vacuum attachment for Porter-Cable Dovetail Jig.
Easy to attach to the P-C Dovetail Jig. One would think that P-C made it. Works very well collecting most of the chips.

VRS1200 - I Love it
I used my VRS1200 for the first time a week ago. The amount of mess I did not have to clean up made the purchase well worth it. The design is really good. After a few minutes of setup and understanding how to use the device, it worked well. The only challenge I experienced has to do with the sliding port does not follow my router well. I had the move the port several times to allow the router continue to move up and down the dovetail jig.

THIS THING SUCK!
Literally. this thing sucks up almost all the wood dust ..... it's a huge improvement. I have a Leigh d4r which has been my go to mostly because of the dust collection but this will definitely change that.

Good attachment for Porter Cable 4200 series dovetail jigs
Works very well once you complete the simple setup. Works best if you put a 5/16" or 3/8" flat washer between the knobs and support brackets. Otherwise the brackets move when the knobs are tightened changing the height of the vacuum box so it is no longer in plane with the router template.

Really works gret
I hated making box joints because of all the saw dust. I took a chance and bought the VRS1200. Now very little saw dust is falling on the floor. It just works great! Easy to install and adjust. The added benefit is it holds the router between cuts.

an excellent add-on that collects 90% of dust and provides needed table-like support for the router.

Cleaner and extra support.
This product does just what it says. Nice to hook up central vac to catch the router shavings and the extra support it adds for the router base is really a plus.

Routing dovetails is a very dusty project. This jig will hopefully eliminate most if not all the sawdust.
