This is one of my projects I plan to add to my shop this coming year.

Bill Pentz says it all. Lots of good reading.
Dust Collection Research - Downdraft Table

For me, I should be able to build it to fit my adjustable height worktable. I had a brainstorm that I could simply lift out one router, set the table in place and hook up the hose to my dust collector through the opening in the table. Hmmm...that may or may not work out. It might turn out to be a hassle to connect the hose, then disconnect it when I am through. An easier way would be to connect the hose to a port on the end of the table.

At some point, I will draw up my design. It will be easy to attach it to the work table with a couple of clamps.

According to Bill's chart, I should be able to make a box that has a surface of about 20" x 30". My worktable is 30" x 37".

But where will I store it when not needed? That is the 64,000 dollar question! :eek:
