got this accessory recommendation for my porter cable 4216 dovetail jig from fellow good friend and lumber jock little black duck.as soon as i checked it out i ordered it.after the first test of the router jig (i did a review on the porter cable jig also) i knew i needed some type of dust collection,everyone knows the dust created routing.this was an easy to setup jig that not only collects about 90 percent of the dust but also creates a great support for the router.the jig just stays attached to the dovetail jig so their is no setup to do each time.im very happy with the jig and this dust collector and highly recommend the two together.

check out the link for complete info and price.

Hey pottzy, nice review on this and the 4216… however, you trying a LBD impersonation?... lotssa worrds but no bleeding sawdust… or did you use some of those slats from the bed to practice on and not revealed it?

Yeah we do get paranoid about sawdaust nowaday and forever bettering our collectors… needless to say, I sawdust years ago, however, I still see it… all over the furniture… OUCH! missus just took liberties with the back of my head… I’m one of the few males with the bald spot at the back not the top!

Looks like a good piece of kit.
working outside I dont do a lot of dust/chip collection apart from the thicknesser, I dont even use one on my cabinet saw I just scoop it out later.
The rest I just share the love around the neighbourhood with my petrol blower later when I am finished!

BTW what happened to the plastic adaptor you bought some time ago? .. did it last the distance?

yeah i still have it but it wouldn’t really work with the jig,this attachment also makes a great platform for the router to sit on.im surprised porter cable doesn’t offer their own.

I have the Omni jig from P.C. This looks like a much better option than the plastic dust hood that was a little extra for my jig, I would like to have this jig/dust/tool rest.

so far ive only done a test with it but id say it sucked up at least 90 percent of the dust.not sure if it will work with the omni jig tough.
