Just finished a quick design that holds my rigid vacuum. The square nozzle that came with it is pretty good at picking up the chips and it’s 5HP so plenty of suction. Just 3D print and insert tip, easy to remove after your done milling to clean up and it holds it pretty tight and close to the bit. I printed it in white to get the right fitment, now to print it in black to match
Having spent two hours today holding a vacuum nozzle while cutting copper sheet, I defo need something like this. I don’t have a 3d printer but I do have an X-Carve, so think I can throw something together.
This is pretty great.
The angled connector that came with my shop-vac is a little different, and I’m thinking of drilling straight through the connector into the 3 holes on the side of the Dewalt 611 bracket to put the nozzle right near the spindle.
Yours looks great and inspired me to keep it simple… at least for now.
