Well I thought I had the solution for the PantoRouter by using my Festool dust extractor but it fills the bag much too fast and the hose will clog with the volume. Anyone have a solution that works for them that isn't as loud as a reg shop vac? The Festool works great but doesn't have the capacity and is better suited for the Domino and track saw as well as my Kreg Foreman. But the PantoRouter just makes a fair amount of larger chips/sawdust.

s reilly,
I used an adapter and connected it to my router. I went from the hose size of the router to a 3-inch hose to my dust collector. The collector has plenty of suction to keep everything clean and working. The collector has a large plastic bag, 20-gallon. so I do not empty it very often. Before I had the dust collector. I used a five-gallon bucket. I cut a hole in the top of the bucket and a hole I'm the side of the bucket. One hole went to the router the other went to the shop vacuum. I made a mistake on the first try. I put the hole in the bucket near the bottom. It plugged up right away, so with the suction hole close to the top and it works fine. I do not know if this is any help to you, but I hope it may.

Thanks for the reply. I do have a CV1800 but the main line is 6" and I have a reducer down to 4" for the floor sweep and a few of the tools. But I think, don't know for sure, that the amount of suction may be too great. I'll have to try a reducer from the 4" to the smaller hose and see how that works. I'll likely need to open another blast gate or two to cut back on the suction so it doesn't try to collapse the hose.
