As soon as I get my new M12V this week, I expect to be using my PC 890 router mostly as a plunge router and I need to put together a dust collection solution for it. I plan to use a shop vac and found out that PC sells a hose that fits the outside of the dust port on the base of this base, but has anyone come up with a more cost effective solution. I don't need the hose - I just need some sort of a soft rubber elbow connection so I can transition from what appears to be around 2" outside diameter to the usual 2 1/2" shop vac hose size. Adapters I've seen are straight and hard plastic and that won't work with this base.

Hi Paul
You may want to check out your auto parts store they may have something you can use some water pumps and rad.hoses are that big but going to 2 1/2" i.d. maybe hard one but they make tons of hoses for cars you just need to find one on the wall and cut out what you need from it,they also make rubber plugs that you put inside to fit the 2 1/2"" in.
(pre bent/molded rubber hoses ,auto. type)

Plus many tools, chop saws,radio arm saw, etc. come with a short molded hose that may work in your case, my DeWalt has one that just slides on and made to put the chips out to the side of the blade guard.


Hope this helps
Bj :)

Hi Paul Doyle here.
When you come up with your effective solution for dust collection with the PC 890 let us know. I Have an 890 and have as yet little success trying to keep dust off me and filling my shop. So outside it is for now. I used a shop-vac attached to the base, a Grizzly 2HP dust collection system and a JDS air filter system. I am still cleaning sawdust from all my machines, shelves, bench tops and tools. Thank heavens for proper dust masks and ear plugs and yes safety glasses. Thanks for your post. Doyle

Hi Doug

The one I'm using in my PC came with the Freud FT2000E router I got ,it's a default item for that router , it's one items you would need to call a seller of the Freud routers or the parts service center in your town, maybe with some luck Charles M. ( a member of the forum ) he works for Freud, will see this post or you can drop him a PM and ask him to find you one and with some real luck he will just get you one. I'm sure it's just a dolllar item for him if that.... I'm sure all he needs to do is look up the part number and pull it,,, if not let me know and I will look up the part number in the manual then just make a call to the server center and get on on the way...

Same thing for the Sears vac.pickup...

Hi Doug

That is the old 690 I use it on all my PC routers :)
I just switch the base plates quick and easy when I need a vac.pick for a project. ( 3 screws and it done)

Bob,

Also noticed your picture with the base attached, did you modify the plunge stop rod on your 890 base? Looks like the old 690 rod.
