DIY Blast Gate Box Plans

Detailed plans for making a DIY blast gate box for dust collection.

The box has a main 100mm dust hose and two secondary 63mm hoses connected to a blast gate.

I've used a dust extraction cuff to connect it to a table saw or a router table.

It’s also designed that way so you can use the blast gate box in other woodworking tools.
