Exclamation Dust Collection Solution

I spoke with the support team at Incra. They made a couple of great recommendations for the clean sweep system to work for my new Incra Table.

They suggest a smaller dust extractor portable unit with a minimum of 400 CFM. I found a 600 CFM unit online.

Here’s a Myth Buster. As long as your using, the Incra CleanSweep insets 4 inch hose and a unit dust collector with 400 CFM plus, You’ll never burn up a router with the Incra CleanSweep system. The CleanSweep cools the router with it’s funnel design.

Incra has tested the unit with every router model that will fit the CleanSweep. As long as you have sufficient airflow it will never cause overheating.

Hello!
Never did burn a router.
I can vouch this big extractor moves a lot of air !

And then the bag will blow the fine dust airborne.
As the fine dust is the more dangerous this is a real Killer!

Gerard may have a point about the fine particles.

Steve, those guys also sell a unit where the bag could be replaced with a filter. The filters are costly though. That unit may be a better choice so that you have the option. Plus it looks easier to clean out with the bottom plastic bag getting most of the sawdust.

That's exactly what my system does. It's a dust redistributor. I haven't had a chance to modify it yet to capture the fine particles.

A router sucks air from it's top end and blows it out at the bit end. This keeps it from picking up dust and debris and heat from the cutter and sending it up through the windings. So any DC system that sucks air from above the table or from the area between the router motor and the bit will help cool it by increasing the airflow going through the router.

Any system trying to pull air down past the router will probably cause it to run hotter. I worked in a fireplace mantle factory for a while in Edmonton that had a big Malita in a router table that was essentially just a large box. After about 1/2hr to an hour I could feel the router getting hot through the walls of the box so it was working against the router's cooling design.

I like the choice for a name others gave them - Dust Pumps.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

I just replaced the 1 micron bag on my old Delta DC system with the new Wynn canister and couldn't be happier. Total investment with shipping was 236$.

To show you how bad those bags leak. Smack the bag with the dust collector going and watch the dust fly. I changed my Jet filter bag out for the top mounted filter.

Craftex is a pretty well known dust collection. It’s bandage solution until I upgrade the power box in my garage. I’ll take a look at an upgraded bag. Like the blades they give with most saws, you probably have to upgrade the standard bag.
