After putting in some overtime hours at work I was finally able to purchase a router table and fence system. I went with the Incra combo system and matched that up with the Triton 3.5 HP router. Now for the fun part, I’ll be building a cabinet for this system so that I’ll have storage and some noise insulation along with dust collection. The stand that came with the package is only temporary until I get the cabinet built. I’ve been looking at several of our fellow lumberjock’s router table cabinets especially Blake’s. I’m looking for some feedback from you folks on dust collection on your router tables. Some of you have an enclosure and the dust port and others have sloped panels within the router enclosure that appear to create a venturi effect. Some have a solid door while others have holes or vents in the doors. My questions are 1. “How does your dust collection work with your designs?”. 2.”Are the vents or holes in the doors for cooling air for the router or do they promote more efficient dust collection?”. 3. “If you had to do it again would you do something different with the design of your cabinets?”.
