Anyone fitted a below table dust box to router table? I have a rutlands router table and have seen some people fit a dust box with extraction enclosing the router to aid dust removal. Are they effective and are there any inherant problems like over heating access etc.
Was thinking of the below

I enclosed my UKTools V3 router in a dust box and do not have any problems with it. After a few weeks of daily use, I did not see any dust in the motor and only minimal dust in two corners of the dust box.

Depending on your router motor, you could have challenges with accessing the router controls if you enclose it under a table.
