Downdraft Sanding Table
Hi- I am going to build a downdraft sanding table which will hook up to my dust collector (1.5 hp, 1200 cfm, Jet cannister dust collector). I plan to mount it on my workbench via a couple of clamps in use and want it to be portable to store away when not in use. I'm thinking of making it roughly 18" x 24". It will probably have detachable or fold up wings to aid in dust collection. The dust collection hookup would probably be on one side or maybe the back. Right now, I'm thinking of using either spaced slats or pegbard with the holes drilled out a little for the sanding surface.
I am looking for any ideas/plans anyone has. I'd be especially interested in hearing from anyone who has built a table, used it for awhile and has an opinion as to what design features are most important. Any ideas you could offer would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
