Default Router Dust Problem

How do you control the dust from underside of router table. Saw dust flies all over.

It has a dust port on the top back side but a lot of dust comes from bottom side.

How do you make a dust catcher - instructions.

Thanks - JAW

Hi James. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

The best way to control the dust under the table is to enclose the underneath side of the table. Then hook a hose from your dust collector to a collection port.

James,

If I'm doing a lot of routing, and the weather permits, I take it outside. In my router table the router is enclosed on 2 1/2 sides, and the dust tends to drop straight down. I take care of the dust above the table with a 2-1/2 inch hose mounted to the fence.
