"I recently finished a project with 14 raised panels. I raised them with your insert panel cutter. Over the years, I have used many different "premium" cutters. Yours is by far the best I have ever used. I congratulate you on this superb system."
"I have recently purchased the Infinity Combo-Max saw blade and Glue Joint Router Bit. I am totally pleased with these tools. I have owned many different saw blades and router bits in my 50 years of woodworking and these rank among the best I have owned."
If you use a router table you must have a look at this revolutionary dust collection system.

I have been using this for 2 years. I dont write reviews until I have good experience.
The key part is the rubber housing under the table. It collect the majority of the dust in most uses. It is flexible enough to get your bit changing tools around the collet but it does require a little extra effort to change bits as the rubber grommet is there and your above the table bit changes will happen without the collet fully extended. I bought an offset wrench, but it did not really help, you just have to use the normal wrenches when changing bits and deal with the distance.
I would have given it 5 stars but the plastic that came with it to mount under the table had to be significantly modified to fit my lift. It all worked out but should have been easier. After mounting the plastic sheet included that the rubber grommet Velcros to it worked fine. This solved a big source of dust and chips. I have two router tables and this is only on one of them I primarily use for Dado cuts. I will add another one someday to the second router table, just need to set aside a 1/2 day to mount it right. I have two router tables to make doors.

I just installed my router table dust collector this past weekend. The instructions are easy to follow with all the parts clearly listed. Installation took longer than I thought but I have a router lift that had to be partially dis-assembled in order to install the dust collection. Not hard to do.
My first impression is that this product does a decent job. I have a Incra fence with a dust collection fitting on the fence. With smaller bits the dust collection works great. With larger bits, I used the smaller Infinity lock miter bit as reference, the dust collection was only marginal. Im using a shop vac connected to a dust deputy dedicated to the router table.
Dust collection is better than before when I was only attaching the vac to the fence but not as good as I would have hoped it to be.
I think part of my problem is that the dust collector does not seal up tight to the bottom of my router plate. I will go back and put either double stick tape or some sort of sticky gasket material to eliminate the poor seal between the plate and the dust collector mounting piece.

Easy Set-up, Great performance
I just got my collector yesterday and set it up right away. I have a Bench Dog cast iron tablesaw extension wing router table that I installed it on. Set-up took maybe 20 minutes. I did have to use my own small hose from the back of the fence to the tee as the one that came with the collector was too short. I also took the velcro ring that came on a clear plastic peice off and mounted it dirctly on the motor side of the router plate on my router, a Dewalt DW618 with fixed base. The plastic piece was meant to mount between the table insert and router plate but it was easier to mount just the ring. I am using a shop vac for dust collection right now. Once installed it works like a champ, 99% of the chips and dust gets collected, even when I quickly shoved a peice through the router taking a full cut with a 3/4 Ogee bit. I got it on sale so the price was reasonable, but if you are trying to cut down on as much dust as you can then get this item, its well worth the money.
