I am building a new router table. I plan on buying a DC, but for now am
using a shop vac.
With my craftman table, at least half of the debris winds up below the table
with the shop vac connected to the fence, and of course there is nothing to
catch the chips when I am not using the fence.
Accordingly, I am thinking of closing in the bottom of the table, and
putting the port below the table, rather than above. Since the largest hole
in the table will be where the router bit is, it should catch all of the
Does this make sense to do? Will the DC be okay with the restricted opening
for air flow?
