Dust collection bottom of router
I posted this on the first page as a newbee and think that I may have posted in the incorrect area, so I hope this is not a duplicate post. I have read a lot about routers and decided to buy a 2000 watt Festool router. For the table, I bought the Bench Dog Pro Max table that came with a nice steel 18" x 24" x 26" stand. The 1½“ iron top seems to be very sturdy and was a real pain lifting it to the top of the stand. I have it all together and for Xmas my wife bought me a Jet 650 cfm canister vac. From the reviews, it seems that this should do a good job of clearing debris from the cuttings at the fence. Looking at my setup, I am thinking about enclosing the top ½ of the router table which would be about 12" x17" x 23" ID and running a 4” outlet out the bottom and back of the enclosure with a door in the front for access to the router. Really, can it be this simple to enclose a router table for a vac system for dust collection? What am I missing? Is the 12" 17" x 23" dust enclosure too big for the router or should it be made smaller? I could cut it down about 3" or 4" on each side. I know from life experiences that things cannot or maybe should not be this easy. Any ideas is appreciated as when I joined the group just a little while back I only had a ½ day of experience and this is only my second post.
