Insert modification for better table DC
This is my first post. Iím sharing my router insert mod for feedback and suggestions.
Background: Iíve been working on a router table setup that includes a PC 7518 in a Jessem lift, an Incra Ls Positioner, and the Incra Wonderfence. I plan to build the table with a DC box under the router. I have researched other great threads for that.
I ran into a snag where the Jessem inserts have no DC suction holes like the desired Incra magnaloc inserts do for e.g. -for plowing dados away from the fence DC.
Solution: While I could invest in an Incra adapter plate and cleansweep inserts I decided to modify the Jessem inserts and add my own holes. Iíve attached pictures of the mod. I figure the holes should be adequate to capture dust during dadoing away from the fence DC. I home the material going by bit doesnít snag on the hole edges. I sanded flat and removed burrs. As you see in the pics the insert underside has divisions that assisted even placement of Forster bit holes.
