Unless you have a fully-enclosed router table, your chip and dust collection probably leaves something to be desired. Instead of fully enclosing the entire table, Rockler’s Dust Bucket just encloses the router to get the same level of dust collection. When used in conjunction with a fence collection port, the Dust Bucket will allow you to collect virtually all the dust from your table.

The 13″ wide by 13″ high by 10″ deep galvanized steel Dust Bucket fits over most routers and is deigned to be used with a 4″ dust collection system or larger. It attaches to the underside of the router table with key hole slots. A door with a magnetic catch built into the front of the bucket gives you access for changing bits or cutting height, and an adjustable vent allows you to control the level of suction. The 4″ collection port can be mounted on the back or on either side of the bucket.

Rockler sells the Dust Bucket dust collection system for $80.

    Perhaps I’m getting this wrong but wouldn’t the wood dust collect inside the router as the motor cooling sucks air through the machine?

      Seems like the moter would get all clogged with saw dust over heat, and size up. @Michael, saw dust on the floor isnt the issue, It’s the fine dust in the air we breathe.

    I don’t understand why people are in to dust collection. A good layer of saw dust of the floor helps clean up the blood when your butchering your livestock.

  3. Mrten says:

    Well, blood does leave rather nasty stains in woodwork, so maybe people collect the dust in the shop and spread it out again where they butcher the livestock.

    Just a guess, of course.

    From my experience, when you say “livestock” you are referring to fingers, yes? Whether sharpening, bit changing, even measuring, blood seems to be involved for me.
