Any one pipe both dust ports (fence and case) into a 4” dust collection system. Was trying to use PVC to get it done, but having trouble with sizes. It has two standard 2 1/2” ports made for shop vac attachment. Would like to combine and pipe into one then transition to 4”.

I used a 4” & 2-1/2” on mine, but this http://grizzly.com/products/2-1-2-Y-Fitting/D4234 and this http://grizzly.com/products/4-x-2-1-2-Adapter/W1044 should work.

Yep…. I did it when I built my r.t.. I built the “Norm” table, but intead of using the 2/12” port at the fence, I built a box that had Plexy on top, and cut a hole in the back to accept a 4” hose…Same thin on the cabinet. Then used a “Y” to connect those two, and connected it to my dust collector, using a blast gate. It gets about 90% of all the dust and chips, and leaves very little in the cabinet. Here’s a couple of pictures of my setup.
