Dovetail jig dust collection

I have a Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig. Does anyone know where I can get plans to build a dust collection system for the jig?

I see Rockler has a dust collection attachment for their dovetail jig.  I've looked at it and contemplated whether I could make it fit my jig or if I could build a similar one.  The unique feature of this attachment is that it has a row of bristles that the router bit passes through.  I'd be interested to see what you come up with.

I called Rockler and was told that their dust collector would not fit the Porter Cable dovetail jig. Leigh makes a dust collector for their jig. This months Shop Notes has a mount for a dovetail jig. This mount should provide ample support for a dust collector. Since I will build one I am looking at incorporating a support for the router base like the Akeda jig.
