Great product
I was a bit put off by the price but decided to purchase anyway. The quality and design of this product is top notch so no regrets. Works great with my Rockler router table and Bench Dog ProMAX router table. I have a 1" thick plywood sandwich between the table and top which turned out to be great for screwing the dust bucket to.

Adapted to the Bench Dog router table extension for table saw
I could not be more pleased with this product. Made the router table a joy to use. Made a "gasket" from 3/8" plywood and attached to the Bench Dog steel router table using the four threaded holes on the underside of the table.
Adaptation for the Bench Dog table saw extension.  3/8" inch plywood works great.

Works Great
This is the best product I have bought in a while. It collects 99% of the particles and dust from my router plus it keeps the router free of accumulated dust. Took me 15 minute to assemble, install, and connect to my central dust system.

I recommend this item without reservation.

Great dust collection
Has brought new life to my router table. I had plans to make my own dust bucket but they kept getting put to the side. But after installing this i was able to route a set of rail and styles to frame a mirror and had no dust to vacuum up afterwards... super impressed.

setting up dust system
Charles Rhinard R on Jun 4, 2020
I have a router table setup and even with the 2 1/2 fence dust port the dust is still a problem. This encloses the entire router (I have a lift system) and should keep the dust down. I'm looking forward to installing and testing it out.

Edward R on May 24, 2020
Have been looking for a dust bucket for my JessEm router table and the specifications/diagrams indicate this will work. I then called JessEm and they confirmed that this will fit. The challenge will be accurately drilling a hole for the lift adjustment rod that must go through the box.

It is said to fit the Triton TRA001 router, which is what I use in my current router table. Added a Sawstop inline router table to my PCS and want the same level of dust collection as my current Woodpeckers router table setup.

will this mount to the benchdog castiron router table table saw extension and how does it get mounted?
kelly L on Dec 12, 2019
Do you plan to offer this as a kit w/hose & connector to your router table fences as you did with the old model?
Richard B on Nov 7, 2019
Will this fit a benchtop Kreg router table?
Betsy C on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We decided to keep the Dust Bucket because we wanted the ease of connecting our Dust Right Dust Collection system. We used scrap 2x4s on end, cut them down, to create a wood frame on the bottom of the Kreg Router Table so we could mount the Dust Bucket. Sealed with caulk and some duct tape and it works exceptionally well!
Does it easily mount to Bench Dog Tools 40-102 ProMax Cast Iron Router Table Extension?
Paul M on Jan 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It’s does not easily mount but I was able to use the four tapped holes that are meant
To hang the fence. I used 3/4” plywood. Cut out a hole to match the ID of the dust bucket and then drilled 4 holes to align with the tapped holes. Used 1/4-20 bolts to attach plywood to the router table. Worked pretty well.
Can the 4” hose adapter be reversed so that the smaller connector that goes up to the fence is angled in the opposite direction? It seems like you’d get better air flow if the air from the fence connection didn’t have to reverse itself to get to the dust collector. This would be opposite to what’s shown in the photos.
DONALD R on May 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The only adapter for the bucket directly is what is shown. I understand your logic for air flow but do not know how much extra you would get. You could block off the 2 1/2 port and then connect a different Y dust fitting, Item #42253, that would work as you are asking. Not an elegant solution but doable. I will put in question/recommendation to Rockler to see if this port could be redesigned in the future.
Has anyone come up with an elegant solution for when they aren’t using the fence? What are you doing with the 2 1/2”
Fence hose? Do you disconnect from the port every time you don’t need the fence?
Danny Mc on May 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I don't get what your asking if your removing the fence because your not using it you have to disconnect it any how? I have a 2 1/2" blast gate on mine and just shut it off and disconnect it from the fence very easy and fast.
Will this work with a Jessums table?
lastr002 on May 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The dimensions of the bucket are
Bucket Width: 13''
Bucket Depth: 10''
Bucket Height: 13''
Mounting Tab Width: 1-1/2''

The mounting tabs are adjustable to allow for customizing on various router tables. I do not have information specifically on the Jessum table but given the opening size is 9-1/4" X 11-3/4" this may fit.
What is the dimensions of the box?
Verne on Mar 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER: From the Rockler website:
Tech Spec
Material: Steel
Finish: Blue powder-coat
Bucket Width: 13''
Bucket Depth: 10''
Bucket Height: 13''
Mounting Tab Width: 1-1/2''
can it be attached to a sawstop router table?
Michael W on Feb 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be attached to most anything.
Does it mount to the bench dog stand alone cast iron router table?
Christian D on Feb 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I am going to say no, not without modifications. I could not find a photo of the Bench Dog Router Table, but if it is anything like the cast iron router table extension for table saw (58864), this is what you are faced with. The cast iron table is ribbed on the bottom and does not have predrilled / tapped mounting holes. To make this work, you would need to bond a piece of plywood or MDF to the ribs to create a surface to mount the Dust Bucket to.
Is this compatible with the Kreg PRS2100 Bench Top Router Table?
Greg N on Dec 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No just sent the one I purchased back they have a good return policy.
Where is it made?
Mark M on May 30, 2020

Will the Rockler Pro Lift fit inside of this? Will the dust inside the bucket jam up the lift?
Debby on May 15, 2020
Dust Right Router Table Dust Bucket with Dual Port
Dust Right Router Table Dust Bucket with Dual Port
Rockler Pro Lift Router Lift (8-1/4'' x 11-3/4'' plate)
Rockler Pro Lift Router Lift (8-1/4'' x 11-3/4'' plate)
BEST ANSWER: It should fit inside and should not jam up the lift if you have dust extraction. Please be aware that the lock for the height adjustment is below the lift plate. This will require that you have access to the dust bucket door to lock and unlock the lift.
Does the router air intake get clogged with dust as it's enclosed in the box?
Tanja D on Apr 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It will get clogged if you don’t have a vacuum system of some sort. It is designed to be used with a vacuum that continually pulls the sawdust out. I’m using a less than efficient shop vac, and it has no trouble keeping up with the sawdust.
Will this fit a Kreg Precision Router Table?
chris u on Feb 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You can see the dimensions. It will fit any router table since it attaches underneath the table. Router plate dimensions are more important. The bucket needs to fully cover the plate.
Will this work with a jet table saw?
GERALD M on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unlikely without modifications to your table saw. I have an older Craftsman saw and I used a 14x14 table saw hood #88478. I had to transfer the holes from the saw base to the hood and was able to attach a 4” hose to the bottom. I had to close up the back around the belt drive. Do not close up the base to make it air tight. You need to allow makeup air in for the vacuum to draw properly.
This item will not attach to the Rockler cast iron table. Is there another bracket that I need to attach it to the cast iron table? It's designed for the flat MDF or Phenolic table. The bottom of the cast iron table is not solid, it is nothing but webbing.
Steve P on Dec 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There are 4 screw points on the bottom of the cast iron table, two get used to hang the fence. Is there any orientation of the mounting tabs that will line up to those holes? If so, you could thread a couple nuts onto the hooks and then use two bolts to fill the remaining two holes.
