Default Top-of-table dust collection with a sliding fence

To facilitate making a bunch of box joints, I have built the sliding fence described in Bill Hylton's Ultimate Guide to the Router Table (pg 45).

I'm curious if any one has rigged some kind of above table dust collection for a sliding fence like this.

My shop-built table has dust collection under the table and from behind the fixed fence, but I can't visualize how to do for the sliding fence.

Thanks

<Chas>

I can't help you Charles but I'm sure some of the members will be along to lend a hand.

My router table DC hose is 4". I just place the open end of the hose about 2" in front of the work and secure the hose to the table top with 2 bungee cords. Very little dust gets passed the hose.

Also saw a set up where a Fellow Wood Worker mounted a Big Gulp plastic dust hood to a piece of plywood, with the front edge of the plywood beveled to ease the chips into hood. The plywood was C-clamped to table inches from the work.

Check my uploads. It's easy to do. I'm not sure which page of uploads. It works very well for everything but grooves.

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.

My simple table-top dust control has worked pretty well for me. It doesn't capture everything but it gets most of it: http://www.routerforums.com/show-n-t...t-control.html

Thanks Oliver, that's the concept I needed. I think I'll mount the dust collector funnel on the sliding guides so it travels with the work.

This will be an interesting challenge, I haven't built anything like that before.
