    I have been working on redesigning my vacuum attachment for the Bosch Colt on the MPCNC. I used http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:200583 as a starting point for the vacuum attachment. After remixing it in the 2 parts this was originally in, I realized I could make it into 1 part. After getting that to work, I found a cool quick disconnect for the Bosch but was mounted on linear rail. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:648883. I converted the STL files to openscad so I could make some adjustments and add the mount to the MPCNC. I wanted to be able to use the 2 of these together. After looking at the assembly of the parts, I had to go back and adjust the vacuum attachment so it would not interfere with the quick disconnect part. In order to get it to fit, I had to make an angled adapter for the vacuum hose. Here are some photos & screen shots of the design. This is for the original 3/4″ EMT MPCNC. I did make an option for the newer C-525 version, but that will be an untested version until someone else tries it. I will upload these to thingiverse after I print & test them.

    This is on thingiverse located here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2131782. I am pretty happy with this so far. Here is 37 second video showing how the router is removed & installed.
