Recently I built and I’m now painting my SawStop and Router Cabinet. Some LJs asked about how I was able to avoid having a hose jet out from the back of my router fence to control the dust above the table here are some pictures of how I directed the dust from the top of the table down into the rear of my two-chamber router box and then out the back of my cabinet. I hope these pictures show you my idea around this. I hope this helps to those who wanted to know.
Here’s a link to my project..
after removing my router table top my two-chamber router box is revealed.
This next view is from above and that hole you see lines up with the hole in the table and sits ~6 inches behind the router bit.
Here’s a shot from above that also shows the port that leads to the outside of the cabinet (bottom of picture).
This next picture shows one of the hoses disconnected from the port leading to the table top. The other port leads to the front chamber of the router box. Both hoses are connected to a ‘Y’ port that leads to the outside of the cabinet.
and here’s a picture of both hoses disconnected
All of this is hidden by the table top and a front plate with door. The Router Fence that’s 8 inches deep tunnels the dust from the top of the table through the hole in the table and out that port
