A Clean Workspace at Last!

Keep harmful dust out of the air, and you and your workspace clean. The VRS1200 Vacuum and Router Support fits the Porter-Cable 4210, Porter-Cable 4212 and Porter-Cable 4216,

Benefits of a Router Support

A tipping router can affect the accuracy of the joint. The router support ensures the router base stays perfectly flat.

The router support reduces the risk of the router falling. When finished routing, simply slide the router away from the joint
and park it. Workpieces can be changed without having to remove the VRS1200.

Simple One-Time Setup

The one-time setup takes only 15 minutes! The setup guide and online video instructions make installation quick and easy. No jig modifications or tools required. Simply install the VRS1200 support brackets, level the beam with the template, attach the vacuum hose, and you’re done.

Easy On, Easy Off

After the initial setup, the VRS1200 attaches to your jig in seconds. Internal tension springs hold the beam securely in place while routing.

How It Works

The router is positioned over the vacuum box between the two sliding vacuum box tabs (shown in red for clarity).

As you move the router sideways, the guide bushing mounted in the router base touches one of the vacuum box tabs (shown in red for clarity), and moves the vacuum box effortlessly across the beam, always keeping it positioned for maximum chip and dust collection. The vacuum box automatically follows the router when routing or when parking the router off to the side.

When routing, the vacuum box slides effortlessly across the full width of the beam and Porter Cable 4200 dovetail jig template.

Innovative Dust Collection

As the vacuum box moves across the beam, the hose attachment swivels, allowing it to slide effortlessly. The vacuum box and hose stay underneath the beam, out of the operator’s way.

Fits Popular Hose Sizes

The VRS1200 vacuum port accepts a 1½” hose and the kit includes two adaptors to fit 2″ and 2½” vacuum hose sizes. It can be used with a small shop vac or large built-in system. Festool 27mm hoses require an additional adaptor. Contact Leigh customer service.
