Tool News - Lee Valley Dust Collection Accessories


Lee Valley released a couple of very handy accessories for dust collection. The first is a swivel connector that reduces stress on hose fittings, which means it's easier to move portable dust collection around the shop. At $7.50, it's money well spent. The other accessory is an expandable hose. What's nice about this short hose is that is holds its shape. It bends, expands and compresses to snake around obstructions or to collect debris directly in hard to reach places. It comes in 2-1/2" and 4" diameters. It's about $10 for three feet and it's very handy. Both accessories are available from direct from Lee Valley.
