Convert Your Shop Vac Into A Dust Collector: Dust Right Vortex

Dust Right Vortex

Rockler has introduced yet another highly innovative product:  the Dust Right Vortex, a 10

-gallon dust container that turns any standard shop vacuum into an effective two-stage dust extractor. When used with most power tools and shop vacuums, the Dust Right Vortex™ captures sawdust, wood chips, and other shop debris before it gets to the vacuum, effectively preventing the loss of suction power caused by a clogged vacuum filter.

Dan Wenning, product development specialist at Rockler, says, “Shop tools such as routers, planers, and table saws create a huge amount of debris that needs to be removed in order to maintain a clean and safe shop. Unfortunately, most of that debris will reach the vacuum filter, clogging it and quickly robbing it of suction. The Dust Right Vortex™ uses a patented process that intercepts that debris, collecting a vast majority of it in the 10-gallon container before it can clog a filter.”

Dust Right Vortex Features

The Dust Right Vortex™ has other conveniences not found in competitive products, such as:

• Its 10-gallon capacity is twice the size of other available dust collection containers
• The 5-caster base makes it easy to maneuver throughout a shop, and provides
exceptional stability
• Translucent container has an easy-to-read “fill” line
• The snap-on lid is easy to remove, making disposal fast and easy
• Hoses fit tightly inside the connection ports to prevent unwanted disconnection
• Includes a 36″ flexform hose that connects the Dust Right™ Vortex to any shop vacuum

The Dust Right™ Vacuum (SKU: 40530) retails for $69.99 and is available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler’s independent resellers,, or in the Rockler
catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
