I have yet to put my table to use, but it has 3 separate, blast gate controlled dust collection inlets:
Router Dust enclosure with adj inlet flow gate
Fence D/C
On table simple hood that may end up with a similar table locating device like in the video.

The flexible hose I like quite a bit, use it on my drill press and band saw as well.

Tulowd that is an interesting idea I see there on the left side of the table where you have the dust collection pickup. I image that could be helpful for short boards your routing a dado in because the pickup would be right within the typical path of heaviest discharge. Any other application you envision that being useful?

Cannot remember where I saw it a while back, but I believe I saw a manufacturer offering some kind of dust collection bag/box/chute that attaches to the left side of the table just below the table top. When hooked up to a DC it draws down the dust that would otherwise be thrown off the table.

If you donít mind me asking. Does that black flex duct I see in your pictures hold the dust pickup in place pretty well once you position it?

On the first video there is a center measurement guide at 4:25 into the video. Does anyone know what it is called or where to buy it?

I wonder if it is homemade or some time of art or drafting accessory.

I really have no idea yet, since I haven't really used it. Since I cut 99% MDF, i really want to be well prepared. Some of it will be dependent on the particular shape of the part. Most cuts will be with bearing equipped flush trim bits and then roundovers to machine up trim panels for the car prior to wrapping in leather etc.

The end table dust collector nozzle you are talking about is something Rockler recently started selling under their router or dust collector accessories. Looks like a decent idea for sure.

The flex pipe works best if the nozzle end is heavy, otherwise it will move around a little from where you locate it. ie) the home built or Woodpecker nozzle housing looks to be a good add on for stability

With the updraft on the Triton, one of those movable ports would be great, particularly when not using the fence. I feel a project coming on. I would also prefer to have a 4 inch port above the table and this shows several good ways to do that. Great posts everyone.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Here is one I found that is made by Woodpeckers. I like the clear polycarbonate over the bit for safety.
