Great product I could not have made it myself for the price

I am very pleased with my purchase and believe that I have received good value. I would not hesitate to recommend this product.
Excellent product. Made of heavy steel construction well engineered and well designed. I particularly appreciated the flexibility of being able to use the mounting hardware on either the sides or the front and back.
A particular issue that I had was that I have a JessEm router table with a side-crank lift. This required me to drill a hole in the side of the bucket, disassemble and reassemble the crankshaft in order to slide it through the bucket and reattach it to the router lift. This turned out to be easier than I thought it was going to be.
The bottom line is that I am overjoyed with how the product works. I have it attached to my desk collection system via a 4 inch hose. It does an exceptional job in suctioning up virtually all of the dust created.

Side-crank lift on JessEm router table required drilling a hole in the side of the dust bucket.

Amazing dust collection...Router lift recommended if you are using a large router
Amazing dust collection when connected to a 4" hose and proper dust collector. FYI - If you plan to use with the big Triton router, you'll need a router lift or to drill your router table plate and use the Triton adjustment winder. With the dustbucket installed you cannot fit your hand around the adjustment handle.

Great product!
The "bucket" was well packaged, and easy to assemble, well built also, heavier than I anticipated, not a bad thing.

The challenge was my Benchdog cast router table extension, and mounting the Bucket to it. The bucket is really designed to mount to a traditional router table where you can screw it to the bottom side. The 1/4" holes on the bottom of my extension were about 19" or so between centers side to side, and about 12" front to back(from the router table perspective). These were well outside of the dimensions of the Dust Bucket so I had to come up with a plan to extend the mounting ears. I had pulled out some 2" strap and initially thought I would weld some extensions on the mounting ears to make up the difference. I've been working on a house project and have a bunch of left over 3/4 Birch ply laying around, happened to have a piece about the right size sitting right by the saw and it struck me, why not make a "plate" out of the 3/4" ply that would bolt to the router table mounting holes, and allow me to screw the dust bucket to it, and so that is what I did. Took about 15 minutes to cut, drill, and mount the plate to test fit it, then pulled it off, mounted the bucket and reinstalled it.

Ran some initial cuts and as expected, there is no longer any mess under the router table. I'm quite pleased with it so far.

One comment I have seen from others is that the sheet metal screw points will bite you if you stick your hand in the bucket to move dust out. And in fact they do, so I decided there is really no reason to move the dust out by hand.

New install and some ideas for improvement.
Haven't had a chance to install it yet but I am sure it will work great. I would have like to see them have a hose and small blast gate included in the package. As it is now if you don't use a fence for what you are routering you are just sucking shop air thru the fence connection.

Dust Right really is!
Collects chips/dust very well on my Rockler Router table, in conjunction with the fence port. Thanks also to Woodworkers Journal for the drawer cabinet and bit rack inspiration.

Works good but.
I really wanted to give this a 5 star rating it was easy to assemble and everything lined up perfect but that where it changed. If you are installing it on an open stand you wont have a problem, but if you are putting it on a shop built stand look out. I'm a cabinet maker and all 4 of my stands are top of the line. the problem was I was installing a lift and new table top could not screw the top down the dust bucket was totally in the way. If you remove the dust bucket and screw the top down the dust bucket would not tilt enough to fit in the table. I ended up cutting 1/4" off the face frame at the top. I used the side vacuum hookup installed blast gate on both outlets works good just a lot of work in a closed router table but it will help with dust cleanup and that is what its for.

Dust Right Router table dust bucket
The box or bucket apperars to work well. However, I would not recommend the router table. Its not flat and the work catches on the slots. Junk!

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!
Do you plan to offer this as a kit w/hose & connector to your router table fences as you did with the old model?

Does it easily mount to Bench Dog Tools 40-102 ProMax Cast Iron Router Table Extension?
Paul M on Jan 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Sorry I cannot help you, I don’t have that setup.
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.
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.
