Tornado Dust And Chip Extraction Nut

by Dipak Patil

The Tornado Nut by Salestech helps with the removal of waste typically but not exclusively when nesting. Simply the Tornado Nut replaces the standard nut on your collet chuck with the collet locking into the Tornado Nut. The vortex created by the nut lifts the waste from the table enabling the overhead dust extraction to remove the waste. With the waste removed your tool life is extended, your quality of cut is improved and the working environment is cleaner and healthier. Tornado Nut is a worthy accessory to have along with your other Routing Tools.
