Default Router table dust box enclosure

Hello everyone, I've just added a cast iron router wing to my Powermatic 66 cabinet saw and I was considering building a 1/2" thick plexiglass enclosure with a 4" dust port. Is there anyone whose had a similar project that could perhaps offer tips as far as securing the box to the under side of a cast iron table.

Welcome to the forum MFIW. If you think you need the box in order to get good dust collection that isn't true. You can get excellent results with a pickup on the fence. Then you don't need to worry about attaching it, or how to get power to the router, or turning it on and off if you don't have a remote switch, etc.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
