My Grizzly table saw (G1023RLW) has a cast-iron extension wing for the router. I’d like to build a router enclosure that hangs under the extension wing, to which I can hook up a dust-collection hose. I’ve seen some nice ideas online. (Rockler’s Dust Bucket looks nice, but I’d like to build my own from plywood.)
But I’ve been wrestling with the apparent difficulty of how to attach the box to the underside of the wing. I’ll be glad for ideas or pointers to related projects for how I might construct an enclosure for the router.
As an aside, I’m not thrilled with this extension wing. Now that I’ve lived with it, I would prefer to have one that would allow more options for mounting a router plate.
