I finally got of my butt and made a decent dust shoe.
I ordered the brush from mcmaster carr that others have recommended and installed it in a groove cut in the 1/2" plexi. A small set screw on the side secures the shoe in place. I threw a ring light from super bright leds. Works like a champ and looks good. I just need to buff out the plexi to make it clear again as i cut it out of a nasty scrap.
I wired the led to the controller power supply so when the xcarve is on i have light.
I also decided to dust off my little vacuum former and make a dust shield for the z axis belt. First i carved the buck.
Put a piece of PTEG in the frame
heat in the oven until the plastic sags then turn on the shop vac and stretch over the buck
I over heated the plastic hence the bubbles but other than that worked well.
Trim and some black spray paint all set.
