Whenever I use my router table without my fence and the attached dust collection my shop looks like a snow storm hit. The router blows everything straight up. Are there any jigs I can build or buy that will capture the dust? How do you guys handle it? Thanks for the help.

Lumberjocks.com Mobile Friendly? - 2 replies
From the image above it would appear the site is not mobile friendly. Since my Windows PC went TU a couple of months ago I’ve been using either my Samsung Note 3 or Samsung Tab 12.2 to visit the site. I can tell you it is not a nice experience on a small screen device. What is the most common device you guys use to access the site?

Whenever I need the end of a board held I use my scissor jack I found during the closing of a drug store. Do not know what it was used for. Works great and doesn’t ask dumb questions or joke when I’m trying to fit a joint.
