    If you’ve got enough suction available, you could probably build a down draft table into your existing top

    I have been very tempted to build in some sort of down draft. I have plenty of suction when I am doing edge forming but its the dados that really mess up the shop.

    Yep wood-working creates a bunch of dust. I try to do as much as possible outside. I think I spend more time in clean-up than doing the job.

    Sorry for the delay, I finally was able to snap a pic of my dust collection unit I use for cutting slots and dados on my Bosch router Table. I am hoping to have a video of it in action soon.

    Looks like a nice set-up. Hard to do on a router table. Looking forward to the video.

    That’s a great solution. Where did you come across the adjustable arm?

    I saw in on another forum and its Loc Line products. I ordered mine from Amazon.com. It’s really cool stuff and easy to work with.

    I think this would be useful in multiple applications…my drill press for example.

    I am eventually going to use their products to make a dust blower for the drill press or maybe to help blow chips into the router table dust port. I did read that if you get over 2′ the tube starts to loose its holding power.

    Thanks for posting this! Definitely a great little mod! Looks like it could get in the way of the board on the out feed or am I seeing things wrong?

    It’s adjustable.

    I know this isn’t specific to your router table, but I built my router table and cabinet a couple years ago. I specifically made it so that it had usable above and below dust collection on it. The fence was made to tie in to my dust collection. Even when I am not using the fence I keep it close to the bit just for the DC. That works well.

    For the buried cuts, I put on a ring that is small enough that there won’t be a safety issue, but large enough to allow air flow. This has worked well.

    There are a lot of third party options out there as well.
