Exclamation Dust collection mod's for fixed base routers.

Hi Guys.
If you own a fixed base router ( any make)
you can achieve almost dust free routing with the following ez mod's.

The dust port and dust shield are available through our website.
The black pipe ( ez dust port) is made to our spec's,
to be easily heat formed with any heat gun or even a good hair dryer.
The clear plastic sheet ( ez dust shield ) is VERY heatformable
plastic and you really have to take it easy and please, don't use a torch.

The pictures are self explainatory.
We use 10/32" tap set and screws. ( Only 3/16" long screws)
The step drill must be smaller than the handle opening.

Here we go.

Dino I just found an Hitachie M12VC on sale here so I picked one up I like this router very mutch quite and works great ajustment and bit change is good. I will need to add the dust control to it but can't find the video you made on it from start to finish. My question is how did you put the plastic windows inside with tape or calking sealer. I also have another router and it works fine but the dust control is poor.

Would like to get a plunge router that plunges easy and smooth not happy with what I have now witch one works best for you guys out there.
Dewalt,Bosch,Makita
