I’ve been inspired by many ideas for Dewalt 611 dust-collecting systems; however, none fit my exact needs. I decided to take many of the ideas (e.g. attachment to X-carriage instead of spindle, clear vinyl skirt) and make my own. The project can be seen here:
Here’s a picture to show the final product:
The magnets attached to the X-carriage with epoxy are shown in the yellow circle.
I attached two magnets (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Crown-Bolt-3-8-in-x-7-8-in-x-1-7-8-in-Heavy-Duty-Block-Magnet-2-Pack-96294/203613128) to the X-carriage. Steel angle brackets (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Simpson-Strong-Tie-18-Gauge-Galvanized-Steel-Angle-A21/100374951?MERCH=REC--PIPHorizontal1_rr--100375047--100374951--N) are attached to the dust-collecting system with machine screws. These provide a magnetic surface for attachment to the magnets on the X-carriage. The clear vinyl skirt is made from this material: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0014B92EE?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00
Self-adhesive Velcro strips are used to attach the vinyl skirt to the dust-collecting system.
