    Great dust shoe. I really like the inner tube concept...

    I found that a dust shoe that big, is less effective in getting the dust out and away. The model I show on my built works great and hardly any dust remains in and around the cuttings. I'm only not happy with the way I attached it to the X plate and so I will take a part of your design to improve it. Thanks for posting!

    Have you played with the design any more. I am thinking that a strip brush might work better. But your design is really great. Basic and well thought out. Here is the brush I was thinking might work.
    Though it might be a bit long

    That kind of brush is a disaster. Use one with plastic strip, not metal. It's a ***** to bend the metal in the right form.

    Ah. OK. Hadn't considered that. Your right bending that into the correct shape would not be fun without a jig of some kind.

    Oh, I tried many ways with that type. It's the only kind I could find here. Around a pipe, pushing it into a groove, with players etc. They flare out on the rounded corners. Useless for this kind of application. The ones with a plastic or rubber strip are good for this purpose.
