Eagle America introduces their new Router Table Downdraft Box. A great add-on to any open bottom router table. The Router Table Downdraft Box greatly improves dust collection on your router table without a major redesign. The downdraft box attaches directly to the bottom of your router table and encases your existing router in a box to capture dust and chips before they hit the floor.

* 13″ x 10″ x 14″ deep the downdraft box is designed to house most types of routers and router lifts.
* Made out of stamped steel, the box is easy to assemble and has a large access panel allowing easy
access for adjustments to your router.

    This is too weird! It’s like you’re almost reading my mind!! You aren’t, are you?!?! God, I hope not. But seriously, my next project is an assembly/outfeed/bending/router table. Although I’ll probably build my own downdraft box, That lays out the how very well! Thank you, Matt!

      Ah yes, the all purpose/specialized/shop buddy table LOL. Actually I really need to do something for my “router table”. It’s horrible and sits on top of a workmate portable bench…and that’s not even steady half the time. Ideas for the fall maybe?
