These economical fittings will help you build a high performance dust extraction system for your shop. Made of ABS plastic (except for the aluminum blast gates), these fittings are designed to stand up against the abrasive nature of saw dust and wood fiber. Universal Tool Adapter adapts your wet/dry vacuum hose to stationary or portable power tools. It's constructed of a tough material and conforms to slight variations in size. The "stepped" design contains a 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 2" external diameter and a 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 2-1/2" internal diameter connection. It also has a square flange with mounting holes that can be used with a collection box. Because of the danger of static electricity involved with dust collection we highly recommend the book Dust Collection Basics #85O17 to be read prior to any installation. The aluminum blast gate has 2-1/2" O.D. ports on either side with an aluminum housing and steel gate that stands up to years of rugged use.

    When gate is opened it leaves a very large gap at the bottom end of the housing. Almost 20% of the suction is lost.

    Gate won't close all the way..

    I had to gring the gate so that it would close all the way. Now they are working fine.

    A vast improvement over ABS blast gates

    The anti clog design eliminates all the time I spent clearing my ABS gates. I switched all my 4" gates out months ago and was pleased to finally find a 2 1/2" aluminum gate.

    Does the Job

    The blast gate is well made with an aluminum body and sheet metal slide. The flanges fit 2-1/2" hoses and used with a metal hose clamp seal very well. The edges of the slide are slightly sharp, but a couple of minutes with a file cured that issue.
