Dust boot inspired by YouTube video

Serious mad skills in the design and rendering for sho. While you all are there how bout knocking out a version for the Bosch Colt… I am liking the idea of using that exhaust or at least not blocking it which probably will not help the life of hte router.

The blower in the Dewalt will never match the suction of a serious dust collection or shopvac. Your larger shop vacs have 300+W of air movement. While the Dewalt doesn’t even come close. Best example would be put down a golf ball sized rock, and let the Dewalt blow on it, and it won’t move, hit it with your shop vac and it sucks right up…

The links work. Looking forward to giving this a go. Thanks!

+1 I’ve just grabbed the DXF/DWG files for this and I’m resizing to suit a Makita router. I’ll have to make some small modification so I can still access the spindle lock.

Is that just pine board you’re cutting it from?

Hi Phil and Everyone

Even if people are not going to build this particular dust shoe I think that it deserves a close look as it demonstrates a very slick and professional approach to the design and execution. It is lovely and I look forward to a video showing it in use.

I am sure it will be excellent.

look very nice !

Phil,

How much is your scale off by? I know when I bring in a 5x5 box from Inkscape Easel says it’s 4.995x4.995 which is close enough for me

Phil,

I just tried the above SVG and when I open it in Inkscape it’s only 1/2 there?

I just did, loaded it into Easel and it’s the same size 8.357 x 4.0 (main boot parts) is that the correct size?

Yep, that’s what I have, I hope to carve one up this weekend

Phil, whats the pocket depth on those two parts?

I just got the pocket depths from the supplied easel files, but I am using the .dxf files to set up the cut myself. I want to eliminate any of the minor errors that i saw in this feed.

I am giving this a go here in a second. Phil, great job on the renderings and files man.

I ordered some magnets. Do you have an updated easel project? I will give this a go over the weekend.

Amazing. But I’m not completely understanding the instructions.
Total cnc nOOb. Have the 1000mm.

After a long day of other chores I finally got started. Still on the first piece. Looks like I set the zero a bit high on the y-axis. I’m going to bed and let this piece finish (everything will automatically shut down when the job is done) and pick up and the second half tomorrow.

So looking at your picture, this totally has to have a 3D printed shell of a T-Rex over it. The side profile on the preview image for the video with the skirt looking like teeth totally says T-Rex…

Always looking for something better! And I enjoy the search… :slight_smile:

I agree Phil. I think you need to rename this to the T-Rex Dust Boot! Perhaps put these on top:

I need to make one of those dust separators. I’m not sure how much of a difference it will make, but if you use 2x45° angles rather than the 90° you might get better air speed/suction. At least that is the theory…
