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

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.

Completely Clean Dovetailing
The good, this thing makes operating your Porter Cable Dovetail Jig a completely clean operation. It literally sucks up every piece of dust. I cannot imagine using my jig without this attached now.
The not so good, it can can be difficult to set up your jig with as every time you make an adjustment, the support brackets have to be held in place or they will move out of position. The sliding action is somewhat sticky even after putting graphite on it.
I wish that Leigh would have found a way to actually mount this to the jig so save the hassle in having to hold the brackets in place.
Even thought I have a couple of complaints, I would not hesitate to purchase this again as it took a dusty, messy job and has made it completely clean.

VRS1200
Works great, would have given 5 starts, but the replacement mounting knobs are too small for my old feedble hands.
