As some of you noted The Pantorouter puts out a lot of wood chips, cutting a 1 1/2” long tenon I had chips 4 feet away. So I had to try to do something. In the 2nd 3rd pic. was my 1st try, It did not work. The last 3 pics was my 2nd attempt and it work well. It takes more time to set up but gets about 90% of the chips.

If you missed the 1st post or want to know more at the Pantorouter see

Yep, Mathias doesn’t seem to have had any problems with the chips until now.
Did you submit him pictures of your version? I’m sure he would be glad to add your version to his website and even improve the plans for such chips collection.

Great looking jig.
I received an e-mail today from rockler on their whirlwind dust port, thought it may help control some of the dust at the router bit. I have to agree that Matthais is brilliant. His web sit is awesome.

Thanks Chuck that idea might work. The problem I had with the first idea was when the end of the section got too far away from the end of the bit, it was very ineffective. With my second idea I was able to trap the air around the bit and make the section more effective. It looks to me like that’s what they’ve done with this tool. I was thinking that I needed a stronger shop vac. the shop vac I have now is a 6.5 peak, whatever that means. Dust control always seems to be a problem in the wood shop, I’m better at throwing dust and chips then I am at picking it up.
