Dust collection cabinet

EliteToolsThe vacuum generated inside the Elite Tools CleanSweep cabinet by a 4 in. dust collection hose pulls chips and fine dust downward past the router bit, keeping the table surface and the surrounding shop clean.

The effect is said to be even more powerful when combined with Incra CleanSweep Rings for MagnaLock router plates and router lifts.

Unlike a dust port mounted on the fence, the cabinet works for every cut and not just when the fence is covering the router bit, providing excellent collection even when routing grooves, making box joints and dovetails, or shaping curved edges without a fence, the company says.

The cabinet screws directly to the underside of laminated MDF and phenolic router tables that have their bottom table opening and related hardware within the CleanSweep’s 9-1/8 in. x 12-3/4 in. inside dimensions.
