02 Feb Quick-Snap Dust Collection Hose with Flex Adaptors
A new Quick-Snap dust hose from Infinity Tools seems like a sensible solution for small shops. The hose comes with a variety of flexible adaptors so a woodworker can hook up any portable power tools that make dust to a shop vacuum of small dust collector. The company says that the adaptors are “the small power tool’s perfect companion. No more looking for adaptors to fit weird small ports to your shop vac hose – just snap and go. Moving mobile dust collection from tool-to-tool has never been easier.” There are three buying options. Item 115-270 (59.90) is a kit that includes a 16′ crush-proof hose, a 2-1/2″ shop vacuum tank adaptor, a Quick-Snap hose collar, and five tool adaptors – 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/4″ and a pair of 1-1/2″. There’s also an additional 2-1/2″ cuff for use with the 1-1/2″ adaptor on miter/jobsite saws. Item 115-275 ($35.90) includes just the five-adaptor set without the hose, and item 115-276 ($7.90) just includes a Dust Deputy adaptor cuff. All-in-all, this seems like a very affordable and clever solution to an age-old problem, and it’s probably a must-have for anyone who is challenged by dust-related health issues. We’re guessing that some tools will require a hose clamp, as the industry still hasn’t standardized dust ports on portable power tools.
