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.

Router dust chute for dados
When I purchased this I was a little skeptical. The product proved me wrong. I merely connected this to another dust post on my collection system and caught the waste that would've went all over the floor had it not been for this product. Genius!!!

Good craftsmanship.
It does a good job, I am using my old big craftsman router so some of the chips fly higher than the stopper but it gets most of them,

Dust Right Router Table ado Dust Chute
Great asset in keeping the dust under control. I was amazed by the amount of chips a small dado cut makes and this collected them all.

Pleasantly surprised
Routing dadoes is as messy a process as I have in my shop, so I thought I'd give this a chance. To be honest, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. Also gave a second thought to purchasing after reading the reviews where the module wouldn't fit table overhangs, etc. But I figured Rockler table, Rockler stand...Rocker accessory, has to fit, right? Right!

The chute fit snugly (read tight) on table's edge, hard against the stand, and it works much better than I expected.

I was bothered, though, with having to use two separate sizes of hoses - 2-1/2" for the chute, 4" for the dust bucket - and rolling the stand to the appropriate collection device. Yes, I know there are tool ports I can use to step up the dado chute fitting to 4", but I wanted to be able to use one hose attachment point for all routs. With a piece of PVC and an wye connector, I ran the dust chute hose along the back underside of the table and used the wye to connect the fence port hose to the dust bucket. My Jet d/c provides more than sufficient draw, even with the relatively sharp bends in the hose routing.

Next, a solution for onboard bits and accessory storage.
Wye connector for fence and dado dust chute.
Dado dust chute hose support across the back of the router stand.
Snug and solid fitment.

I already have the portable Router Table and when I was cutting a Dado the dust shooting off the edge of the table was substantial, hopefully this dust chute will minimize this.

Steve H on May 30, 2020
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.
I have a Bosch RA1181 router table. Is there a similar product that will attach to that table?
Robert K on Mar 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This product solved a huge problem for me by catchng about 90% of the dado sawdust produced. I believe this is a unique product, in that I've not seen another like it. It's made from plastic, but that makes it light and enables it to be secured using only 2 screws fastened from below, up into the underside of the table. Attaching it directly to an extruded aluminum table may take more effort than you want. But perhaps you could find a way to use a piece of scrap wood (½ or ⅜ in ply?) between them.
I have an aluminum table. Will it work on it?
Buster on May 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Buster, as long as you have a an overhang of at least 3" and the ability to drill and tap holes for the included #8 x 3/4" screws, the chute will mount correctly on the table.
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
Any suggestions for mounting to a Kreg router table? It does not fit.
Dannotti on Mar 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You didn't say what model of Kreg router table you have but I looked at the pictures on the Kreg site. Appears you will be hard pressed to get the collector to fit on the benchtop router table. Appears to be very little overhand to screw the collector to. On the Precision router table it appears there would be enough of the table overhang to install it. The plastic on the collector that attaches to the underside of the of the table can easily be cut/modified to fit. I do not have either of Kreg's router tables nor familiar with them. The benchtop model does not look to be easily modified to make the collector fit. Would it be possible to but spacers under the table to raise the table off the metal base so the collector could slide in? Good luck.
What connector would I need to install this to my 4" dust collector system?
Duane H on Mar 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: A 2 1/4 inch OD swivel adapter on the end of 1 1/2 inch ID hose, both sold by Rockler.
I just got mine mounted, & I LOVE it. Only question i have is how to keep from hurting yourself, watching it work so efficiently!?
