Steenkin' damn computer. About 3/4ths finished with this and the computer made it all go poof.
OK, the cool this year is playing havoc with my left knee and lower leg. Even a bit of cool usually makes the knee feel like it's been whacked with a mallet. So, want to move some tools into the spare room, to provide adequate warmth (mostly for me, but glueups also), and fast access to the bathroom. Scroll saw, no problem, I already have a dust control setup planned for that. Metal working tools, with no sparking problems, again, no prob. But, I do quite a bit of work with the router in my router table, and that generates a lot of dust and sawdust, which would be a problem.
If I were just routing straight lines, no prob, wouldn't bother asking. I'd just fix something like in photo one, and something under to catch the dust it sends into my lap.
But most of my routing is more like the piece on the left in photo two (that is one of my masters for my wooden figure banks, it is nailed to the piece being routed),
or the piece in photo three (carrier for plastic bags, lets you carry them witout the handles cutting into your fingers - feel free to copy the design if you want).
And, yes, I know the pictures suck, and plan on getting another, better, camera as soon as I can.
I've been doing a lot of searching, and so far haven't found anything that even remotely covers what I'm looking for. Hence the question. I've got a 15 1/2" monster truck bank designed for the grandson, and will need to rout on the masters for it (ten separate if I got the numbers right), and then will be doing routing on each individual piece also. Which means either a lot of time in a cold shop, or a workable dust control in the house. Possibly I could use a regular dust collection thingie for the outside, but definitely not for routing the inside edges.
Any ideas or pictures would be very welcome. And I'm not interested in buying more than I have to, so am not buying anything I can't make. The shop rig does send most of it to the left rear, so I've thought about a wide intake, but don't think there would be much air pickup with a big opening. Probably better than nothing tho.
Appreciate any help I can get.
