Okay, let’s see that bad boy covered with chips!

Very nice.

One question, though. Is your under table dust collection starved for air, or are there ventilation holes we can’t see that supply the extra air? Clearly the hole through the table top won’t be big enough.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

ZZZDOC, yes there are holes in the plexi housing and the sides are about 1” short of the top. When I turn on the dust collector, a HUGE vollume of air flows through it. Thanks for the heads up though.

Spunwood, I have some sketchup files I put together from dimensions I pulled of the saw and router. The fence design was from one of the woodworking magazines.

I presumed so. I can envision it seeing your picture now that you said it.

My comments were more directed from others that were planning to copy your design. On my table I’m always amazed at the volume of air that gets sucked in from the front, as the router top hole really is rather small and the DC’s appetite is voracious.

Again, nice job. Go use that bad boy.
