I don’t think I have laughed out loud as I have assembled anything as much as I have with this masterpiece of a design! Between the 3D prints and the MDF and the tube it all just fits perfectly!
And then there is the Vac Duct which is just sitting in there and rattling. Is this normal?

Thanks, and yup….That little bugger was a bit of an afterthought. I was worried that the cast 611 sleeve might be different for each router so I was extra cautious.

I’ve been trying to get my head around how that fan duct works – my router is unlike the 611.
Does that shroud block the downwards airflow from the router?March 24, 2019 at 4:51 am #94298
Yes, that is exactly what it does. With it installed, the bits that are cut by router bit aren’t blow to the ends of the earth and can be suctioned out by a vacuum system.

Redirects, the router needs that for cooling but as BT said, the vac works better when the chips are not getting blown all over the place. Better yet try it with and without and see if you notice a difference.March 25, 2019 at 12:51 pm #94518
Awesome, I’ll try design something for the cheapo Ingco router I have – I think a few kiwis have been buying them..March 26, 2019 at 1:46 pm #94678
Not quite perfect, but it fits and seems to divert the airflow from the router and did suck up some dust from the floor…
Probably will use a bit of tape to seal it a bit more.
The router is here;
