I am in the final stages of a router table and was wondering if there was anyone out there who had built Norm's Deluxe Router station and connected the dust collection to a 4 inch system? The one I built is different from Norm's plans in that I had to create my own table top to incorporate a Veritas table and the sliding fences which of course need clearance under the steel top.
I am expecting that I need a 2 inch connection to the cabinet that houses the router, and another one at the fence but looking for ideas or experiences. The ideal would be a 4" to 2- 2" connections, and from the 2" connections I run flex hoses to top and bottom. The 4 inch part lies somewhat flat against the back of the cabinet between the two ports so it only adds about 4 inches, enough to hook the DC hose. Is there such a fitting? I haven't seen one.
The only real requirement is that I don't have a ton of fittings on the back which hinder connection and require the table to be a foot from the wall. Oh, and it has to be efficient at collecting dust.
Any help would be appreciated.
