This attachment works, I have the original 12" model so I had to cut to length. The old model had a vacuum system build in but it was not effective. Another great upgrade from Leigh. Dan
It does what it says it will do.
The real thing. Well engineered and does all the things it is supposed to do.
Attachment really sucks
After years of using other jigs and eating end grain particles while routing dovetails the VRS for our new D4R Pro is like heaven it removes nearly all chips and debris it also supports the router giving you less fatigue while routing multiple work pieces. I would recommend using a high quality paste wax not only on the bottom of your router but also both sides of your jig fingers and the top of the support surface. The vacuum attachment runs on teflon rollers in a track under the support bar and does not attach to the router but slides effortlessly as you push the router along the bar. The support installs very easily and is extremely easy to use. I feel that my Leigh D4R Pro would not be complete without the support vac system. I hope this helps you you can read all about the product at Leigh's web site.
Great product, much better than expected
I bought this product to put on my DR4. Keeping my work shop clean is critical to other production processes, this product captured at least 95% of related debris. This product should be standard equipment when purchasing a Leigh dovetail jig. It makes the operation of the entire system much safer. Having owned and operated a 100 person metal manufacturing business, I know a good thing when I see and use it. This is the first time I have ever written a review for any product, but that's how strongly I believe in the Leigh vacuum and router support. Put it on your wish list, better yet, buy it!
