    I'm currently working threw ideas for a dust shoe for the cbeam machine xlarge. My current ideas for mounting this are to use the router clamp block as the attach point or the cbeam end plates which the lead screw and bearings rest.

    I am curious to hear peoples thoughts on if this second attach point would be strong enough for attaching 2 pieces of acrylic to for creating the dust shoe. I worry that there wouldn't be enough strength to support the plates and a vacuum hose unless I find a secondary method to reinforce the system.
