Router bits and exhaust system
Hi All - Just joined - my first post. I'm finally setting up my workshop. I'll be doing mostly cabinet kind of things, I'm starting to get into some fine working. I'm planning a crib for my first grandson. I have a Bosch 4000 table saw and a Bosch 1617 router (plunge and table) on the way, along with Makita 18V driver/drill and hand tools. Now some questions:
1. I need to buy a few bits. At least in theory, I prefer to buy fewer, but better quality tools - I figure that I don't have enough money to buy the same tool twice (or more). My immediate need (I think) is for a round over, rabbet and straight edge bits. Will the rabbet serve for mortises? Is there anything else that I am likely to find very useful? Recommendations for brands Tools are VERY expensive in Israel - have a chance for someone to bring over a few things for me now from the States.
2. Suggestions for a dust exhaust system. My workshop is small, so space is a consideration. I can get a 3000W 80 liter vacuum, but have been told that it will clog very easily. Better ideas?
Thanks for your help. I've already learned a lot browsing through the forum.
