I’ve been trying to figure out a solution for my dust collection - at the moment I’ve just got a shop vac, and a trashcan seperator.
My router is a little different from the Dewalt that you guys have in the states - It has no dust extraction, but instead blasts air through the entire thing, cooling the motor and blowing the dust away at the same time - I kind of like this, it makes me think that dust isn’t going to get sucked through the router. It does make dust extraction a little more difficult than I anticipated.
I’ve come up with this wee thing - required modification of the 611 plate, But overall it works pretty well, I feel like I should have ask Ryan before I moved the router position - is there a reason that the router is offset and not centre of the 611 plate?
Attached with a couple of screws and wingnuts for reasonably easy removal…, had to add brushes by hand, which wasn’t too fun.
Only problem is, it’s still blowing dust out of the gaps at the top of the shoe, that vacuum is getting more than it was before, but it’s still not great and the brushes seem to be adding a bit of resistance to the x/y moves.
