I think I am going to suck the dust out the back of the box, and provide a means to bring fresh-air in to directly vent the motor. Even toying with the idea of dust evacuation near the top. We’ll see.
here's some things on dust collecting that may be of use to you...

Thanks for that snorkel picture. That is the exact device I have for use on the box for attaching the dust collection hose.

There is a problem using that particular device on a porter cable 7518 motor as the vent intake holes are actually located on the side of the motor housing. I had thought about using a 6” flex duct around the plastic motor housing but that would actually choke off air flow. It would also prevent access to both the power and speed control switch. Some other means will be needed. I am currently thinking I may need to use a couple of pieces of highly flexible 2” vinyl hose or perhaps even fabric wrapped around a piece of wire spiral. Anybody else add a snorkel to a porter cable 7518 successfully?

I cut a hole in the bottom of the box for the router base to go through and the routerlift posts also. Then I set the router on hi speed and used a separate speed control mounted under the table top to control the router. You are on the right track to give the router clean air to breathe.

Stick, thanks for the PDF and suggestion. Now comes the fun of working out the specific configuration for my situation.

Today I completed the assembly of the extension with the attachment of the bracing beneath and start of the dust collection box. I attached the bracing using screws in such way that if I find the need to shim that I could push or pull to suit.

Once assembled I set it up on some saw horses, set the lift in and leveled it. Just wanted to see how well the insert would level up. Turned out sweet.

I have since turned it upside down on my assembly table to work out the nuances of motor ventilation and dust collection for my particular equipment combination. I am now taking inspiration from Stick’s PDF and other recommendations I have read here on the forum. I will post more as I progress.

Can’t wait to get this mounted in the saw.
