Can router bits be changed from the top side of the router tables after the silicone dust cup is installed?
Yes, since the dust cup collapses when the collet is raised, wrenches can be positioned on both the lower and upper collet nuts. This can be difficult in some configurations but can be easier when using an offset wrench on the bottom nut.
Are there other options for changing tool bits on the top side of router tables besides using offset wrenches?
Yes, another option that should facilitate the changing of tool bits is the use of a collet extension which when installed should allow the collet to be raised with minimal collapse of the dust cup and easy access to the collet nuts.
Can collet nuts be accessed underneath the router table and below the collapsible dust cup?
This may be possible, but it will depend on the type of router table and router that is being used and the length of the router collet spindle.
If the dust cup is damaged, is there a way to repair it?
Yes, since the dust cup is made of silicone rubber, silicone adhesive, found in most hardware stores, can be used to mend cut sections of the cup if necessary.
Can oversized bits be lowered into the dust cup?
Bits larger than the inside diameter of the dust cup, which is slightly less than 3 inches, can not be lowered into the cup and the cup would have to be removed to perform such operations.
How long are the hoses that come with the Dust Router kit?
The small hose is 9" and the long hose is 22."
Are larger hoses available?
Yes, larger hoses are available for purchase.
If the Dust Router does not fit a router or router table can it be returned?
Yes, the Dust Router kit can be returned to the source of purchase or directly to Keen Products for a refund of the purchase price.
Will the dust cup prevent motor burnout?
The dust cup has design features such as the rounded bottom which should facilitate the flow of air around the router motor. In addition, since the evacuation of dust is accomplished with a vacuum source, the air flow around the router motor is actually increased.
