Teardrop shaped bit opening for router table
I have one of the large Kobalt miter saw stands that folds up. Originally I bought this for the matching miter saw but recently I built a dedicated stand for that, complete with wooden top, storage cubbies, and work piece supports. Might make a post on that in another thread.
So now I want to turn the leftover saw stand into a mobile workbench that I can take to work. Iím planning to add a place for my DW611 palm router as well, since itís small, light weight, and had a vac port built in which is ultra convenient. So thatís the background.
Now for the question. I read once that someone had drilled a hole in the table top of their router table on the outfeed side of the bit and this helps to evacuate sawdust on dado cuts. Since this router has such a small base, I have limited room for that out past the bit if I want to stay inside the base and use the vac port. Is there any reason I canít use a teardrop shaped bit opening with the oblong end on the outfeed side and get similar and decent results?
