If you've ever routed dados on the router table, you know that the conventional dust port doesn't do much good. Since the dado itself encapsulates the router bit, the dust gets shot out of the dado sideways, well out of range of the fence port. Rockler has solved the problem with the Dado Dust Chute, a clever device that attaches to the side of your router table to capture the jet of dust before it ever hits the floor. Adjustable bristles in the Dust Chute can be raised just above the table to stop the dust as it shoots over the edge, but the bristles bend easily out of the way as you slide your workpiece across the table. Once installed, you can leave it in place, since the integral blast gate lets you close it off when not needed, and the bristles can be easily lowered if necessary.

Features:

  • Captures the dust stream that shoots out of the dado or groove while routing
  • Secondary chute catches dust that falls through fence-mounting slots in router table
  • Adjustable bristles stop dust as it shoots off the edge of the table
  • Bristles also clear debris from the routed groove without interfering with workpiece movement, and retract when not in use
  • Built-in blast gate allows you to regulate suction and close off the chute when not needed
  • Accepts 2-1/2'' dust hose
  • Mounting screws included
  • Patent pending

Note: Requires a minimum 3'' table overhang along the installation edge.

Like the unit.
Like the unit. If you have the Kreg router Table it does limit how close you can get the fence to allow the dust to hit the center of the collector.

The Dust Chute is a great idea. I wish that I could make it work. But, after several hours, I can't find a way to use it on my Jessem router table. The end stabilizers block the Dust Chute attachment. I'll keep trying, but study the chute attachment carefully before purchase.

Honestly using the router table makes a mess as we all know so the less I have to clean the better

My router table always makes a mess at this target spot. Hopefully this should solve that issue.

I love my Rockler router table system with Jesem lift, digital readout and vacuum system. So anytime something comes out that just makes sense. why wouldn't I add it to the already well thought out system?

How do you mount it? If it has to be screwed on from under the table, then it seems to me that every time you move the router fence you will need to get under the table drill new piolet holes to move and remount it. Am I missing somthing? If this is the case it seems like a lot of hasel.
Grizz on Dec 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: you don’t need to move this. It’s supose to be down stream of the router bit. When you move your fence the router bid doesn’t move so thus you don’t have to move it. I’m hopping to get mine as soon as they’re back in stock.
How does it attach to the router table?
Ramala on Feb 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have not mounted it yet but comes with 2 screws and is mounted to the underside of the router table with these screwsEnter
