I recently purchased two 2 ½ inch blast gates from Rockler so that I could split my tablesaw from my floor vacuum. After installation I found that with one gate opened and one gate closed my vacuuming power was reduced by more than half. The gates leaked significantly in either the closed or opened position and rendered the system useless.
For a small system the small gates are of little value, for a larger more powerful system larger gates may work.
