Hi Rob

Many put the router in a box under the top that's a big error, the router needs air to keep cool...you can run the big PC routers and they get HOT in short order..

You can keep the router in a box but it will not last to long.so to say open up the box on both ends, it's just the nature of the router to make dust but not to work in a BOX, take a look at some of your other tools most of them will have the motor out in the open so to speak,,,,,,

You could always add a 4" piece of flex hose to supply fresh air from the outside of the box, to the air inlet of the router, or top.

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
