Leigh VRS Dovetailer Dust Collector

Description

Essentially an aluminum channel with a sliding vacuum pick-up, this attachment works with any router to effectively capture dust and support the area of the base plate that overhangs the finger assembly.

The router rests on the channel and is positioned between two wire control arms that guide the dust chute below, keeping the chute aligned with the cutter as it traverses the jig.

Fits vacuum hoses from 1" to 2.5".

Easily attached without modification to the jig using the included hardware, this is an effective solution to a notoriously tricky dust-collection situation.

WOOD magazine review

No more dust all over your shop

Review Summary

Routing dovetails is one of the messiest jobs in woodworking: We’ve never found an effective way to capture the mess. Leigh has cleaned up the act with accessories for their dovetail jigs that contain the flying debris. Leigh’s VRS (Vacuum and Router Support), “follows” your router along the jig while also providing more bearing surface for the router base. It's amazing how much debris it corralled and funneled into the shop vacuum's hose.
