Default Router Table Dust Bucket DC system

While surfing for new and innovative ideas I stumbled across this below the table DC collector box and thought I'd share. I know nothing about it beyond what's shown on the page but it is a "pre-fab" if someone didn't want to make their own. I'd be a little concerned avout vibration-noise but my concerns may well be unfounded.

I thought I'd share!

hi Jim

thats a unique concept. one of the concerns i would have is knowing how hot metal gets, it looks like it could be a miniature oven??

Hmm.. I dunno, Buddy... I'd like to think that with a 4" DC connected up to it that enough room air would flow through it to keep it cool but...??? I did kind of like the built-in Tee to draw some of the air from the router fence, for those who like that.

I built a small router table which was powered by a Dewalt trimmer. The table sat on top of a closed cabinet which had vacuum port for my Shop Vac. The DC works fine, but lifting the table top for each height adjustment is a lot more hassle than my simpler router tables which have exposed routers. It's just a matter of preference.

Hi Jim,

I had seen this once before and I'm still not sure what to make of it

80 bucks for a box and a couple fittings? I don't think so.
It's no different from the 4" connection I have on my RT already.

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

This kind of stuff is for the new guy who doesn't trust himself with building anything yet and feels like he has to have all the latest bells and whistles.

hi ,

i agree with george. this kind of stuff is for new guys that cant adjust a router without an expensive router lift. lol

also Jim, the only air inlet seems to be a small baffle that will starve the unit of air and result in increasing the temperature tremendously. ive learned from lots of people on this forum. ive asked lots of questions. BobJ , Bob, Harry, and lots of others has helped me a lot. if you need help on a router or router table question, id ask them rather than google an answer. lots of the advertisements from google are like fishing lures. they are to catch fishermen , not fish. hahahahahahahaha

i still believe in an open chamber where the router is and dust collection on the top, you do get a little dust, but you have access to the router.

this is a lesson i learned from BobJ.

An enclosed router system is easiest with a router lift or if you lift the router & plate out of the table for adjustment (lifting from the top). It reduces the dust you breathe, eases your cleanup and mutes the roar of the router. The cleanest match is for router tables with a dedicated router motor, above the table height adjustment and bit changes.

For those who require router body access for height adjustment and bit changes, many still use the DC by mounting a cabinet-type door on the front for access to the router, choosing the noise reduction and improved breathing quality over the minor inconvenience of opening the door. Opening a well-designed and mounted door isn't a major inconvenience.

In either case, you should have a readily available switch to turn off the DC or have it wired to turn on/off with your router.

Just my $0.02...
