Hi, all. Occasional lurker, first time poster here.

I'm interested in hearing from folks who are actually own and use the vacu-plate and manifold...or who have owned it but don't use it any more.

How well does it collect dust compared to other DC methods you've used for the router table?

Do any of you find that you still need to use an above-the-table vacuum inlet in addition to the vacu-plate?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

John

Hey John,

Yes, I have the vacu-plate system and it is worth getting in my opinion. I connect my shop vac to it and wow, it picks up a whole lot of the woodchips. I think it's one of the best systems out there. I don't use any other dust collecting system anymore like I use to when I didn't have the system. But you might have to if you are going to do some pattern routing and need some kind of set up. Cheers! :D

I have the vacu-plate as well. I just bought a shop-vac (QSP 13 gal. 4.5hp).......
The vacu-plate is 2 1/4" in dia.' but I just measured the hose, and it's larger than the vacu-plate opening. I have the pamphlet that came with the shop-vac, and all the fittings etc are 2 1/2".

How do I hook it up then? There is a 90 degree elbow, but it doesn't show the dia. I don't want run the hose directly to the vacu-plate (since I would have to add the screw to the hose;to twist it into the plate). Maybe I'll go look at Canadian Tire to see if they have an elbow (2 1/4") I could "permanently" attach to the vacu-plate to and run the hose from the elbow.......
