That was one of those it seemed like a good idea at the time things. Really no problem with suction though, I have a 2hp grizzy 10' away hooked direct to this table.Why do you have holes in the end wood?
That is detracting from the suction under the router plate.
Sounds good, perhaps you could show the pics of your table so I can see exactly how it should be done.What is a really good idea is to have a 2" hole in the table top at the outfeed side of the plate. so if youre cutting a blind groove all the dust flies out and goes straight down the hole.
Do that and block the side holes. you'll see a big difference in dust collected.
Same on my table, that is why I asked to see yours. I have so much air running to this table it does not matter.I cant do it on my table. I built the table with side partitions and lots of drawer space, and THEN found out about the dust hole to the left of the cutter.
but i know people who have done it and it works well.
Those other holes on the end of the box just create turbulence inside the box, reducing efficiency
