After the first uses of MPCNC I knew: I need something to get that dust away from spreading all over my workshop.
As I am using the Makita RT0700 and there is no part at the bottom, where I can connect the dust shoe to, I had to find I different way.
I researched a litte, watched some youtube videos, found good ideas and a project on thingiverse, that was a huge inspiration, but not exactly what I wanted, so I sat down to Fusion 360 to draw it myself.
There were 2 features, that I wanted:
- it has to be adjustable in height.
- i want to see the milling bit and see if everything is working good
The shoe itself contains of 2 pieces of 6mm plywood (I wanted to use the CNC instead of printing everything, just to learn).
The left circle is where the mill is located. the right one fits the 40mm aluminium tube I have, that I connect the vacuum cleaner to. The hole at the front is where a piece of plexiglas will sit, so I can see whats going on.
