I searched and found very little about the Dustright fittings, collapsible hose, floor and worktable nozzles, etc.
My HF 2HP DC should be here later this coming week. I will mount just the motor/fan unit inside a closet (to cut WAY down on the noise) that is between my shop room and outside. I will pull in to a separator/can (also in the closet), then from the separator to the motor/fan, then directly outside (no fines in the shop to worry about).
Since the back of the closet is almost exactly at the center of one of the long shop walls, it is very appealing to me to use the Rockler Dust Right to attach to machines as needed or clean the flloor or benches, etc. with the nozzles.
Can any of you give feedback about the hose, the nozzles, changing from machine to machine, etc. Is this a good system? I hope so, because I will do whatever I can to prevent (or minimize) ductwork taking over my shop.
The only other things I am a bit perplexed about are the lack of hose and fittings for the 1 1/2” OD outlet ports on the small machines (miter saw, router and router table, jig saw, etc.). Oh… and what about the rectangle ports (two) on the back of the Bench grinder ? Who makes a fitting to go from rectangle to round 1 1/2” or even 2 1/2” ???
Any knowledgeable advise is greatly appreciated.
