Hi rscrawford and glenninvb,
Being some thing like 8.5K into this project, going cheap on dust control is not the intent. Honest. It is a space issue. I'd love to have a legit dust collector. Looked over the 279.00 model at woodcraft. Only reason I left without one is floor space. Even the fact that it is mobile does not help me much. Have to come up with a clever hose suspension as well. Garage door when it opens rolls over the top of the router so no suspending hoses from the ceiling. At some point I might try to figure out how to mount this: http://www.harborfreight.com/13-gallon-industrial-portable-dust-collector-31810.html
under the router table.
For the most part a work item that takes 15 minutes to cut before a pause and tool change will be a "big" job for me. Right now I'm using the 5 gallon bucket adapter vac for all of $22.00, so oven if I have to buy two or three before ( hopefully ) I move to a larger place I can deal with it. If it lasts a week, well that would be another issue.
I gotta go cut another support arm for the hose. I can post an image of the set up if anyone is interested.
