Increased dust pick up - DIY modifcation

Postby Ian Richardson » Mon, Sep 17 2018, 6:35AM

Just wanted to post a few pics of a modification we made to decrease dust left on the table. We added 2 tubes inside the shroud which blows a constant stream of air. Chips not an issue but when we cut mdf, it definitely gets the dust up so the vacuum can do a better job. Little to no dust left on table after.
Just wanted to share :beer:

I love seeing the improvements folks make to these shrouds/boots. I'm still trying to figure out how to get a 6" riser to work with the spindle head in our setup. The 4" riser provided with the stock machine works, but severely inhibits the CFM we have from our DC to the THM.
