Hi Eddy. I would. You can't have too much dust extraction and the router is one of the tools that throw the most dust/chips. If you have done much searching on here you might have noticed this is discussed quite often. Safety is one of our main concerns and believe it or not DC is a big part of that.

If you got multiple vac sources and and a outlet on the router as well why not take advantage of it. Sure nice to reduce those chips when you can, helps cleaning it all up and the quality of the cut when you can pull the chips out as you go.

Hello, I might add my two cents worth about dust collection:

It is extremely important to insure that the entire system, from the hose to the canister is GROUNDED. One static spark makes interesting conversation.

(spark makes interesting conversation) - I totally agree - getting knocked on your keyster by static electricity is no fun - plus all of the dust collection you can get on any machine is the very best.
