I have recently purchased a INCRA router table stand and top and, just like many of you, I would like to modify it with storage and dust collection.
I have a question about the dust collection port. All of the beautiful router table designs here, there is a 4” port at the bottom of the router “cage” and a 4” to 2.5” Wye or Tee connected to it or close to it for collecting dust at the fence. Like here
Would it be better to just add a 2.5 in port at the back with the 4” port ?
For those who are more familiar with airflow dynamics, would this setup cause more air turbulence/resistance and significantly affect the dust collection ?
I was going to use a 5” port and 5” to 2.5” Wye/Tee are hard to come by and I would like to keep the adapters to a minimum.
