The Dust Right® Accessory Rockler Forgot!

I bought one of Rockler’s Dust Right® Floor Sweep Systems … it helps a lot in cleaning up the shop, but I found that when vacuuming the anti-fatigue mats in my shop, the suction would pull the Dust Right® handle clean off the tube.

A few scraps or pine, a few minutes at the band saw, and a little glue … problem solved!

There’s the winner right there Dane, another well done shop innovation.

I kicked my dustrite to the curb for the same reason – I will have to dust it off and do what you did!

Great idea. That is thinking on your feet. I have the same setup and will make a handle for mine. I have been trying to figure a way to make a brush sweep for fine cleaning the floor. The Rockler system just has the plastic that runs over the floor to get the dust…but i always use my Ridgid shop vac afterwards because the brush bristles do a better job of fine cleaning…Rockler, Are You Listening?????
