Woodpeckers has announced their new downdraft dust cabinet, a dust-containment system for router tables. It can be secured to their router tables without any drilling, and can be easily mounted to other brands’ router tables.
There’s a 4″ dust collection port at the rear, and a large hinged and removable door on the front to access your router. There’s also a strain relief for passing through your router’s power cord, and a blast gate so that you can shut off air flow to the router table if connected to a fixed dust collection line.
It measures 14″ tall at its largest side, 9.2″ deep not including the 4″ port, and 12.9″ wide. The shape slopes towards the back, presumably to help direct chips and sawdust towards the dust collection port.
Made in the USA.
ETA: April 30th, 2019

I’ve been shopping around for something just like this, flip-flopping between going with one of two store-bought products, or perhaps a DIY approach. There’s the Rockler Dust Bucket, which retails for $90, and the Incra CleanSweep, which retails for $97 at Carbide Processors.
$120 seems like a reasonable price for what you get, and I just might allow myself to be an early adopter.
