Topic tags/keywords: dust collection router table

I recently bought a Kreg Router Table. While there is a vacuum port attached to the fence, there is still the dust that drops through the plate to deal with. According to people with whom I have spoken, the Keen dust collector does not work well with the Mast-R-Lift. I ended up putting a housing around the lift/router. While it doesn’t reach to table itself, it comes close enough to capture most of the dust that drops. All of the wood was scrap I had lying around and I used some old weather stripping at the top of the box. All I bought were the vacuum fitting, the 10”x10” to 8” register, and the 8” start collar. With this arrangement, I can easily slide the assembly out of the way should I need access or if I decide to actually enclose the Kreg stand at a later date. I hope this gives some of my fellow Lumberjocks an idea they can adapt for their own shops.

Looks like another effective tool for the war on dust collection.

Thanks for sharing.
