I’m trying to find a nice simple dust boot to use with the MPCNC along with my DW660 router. The problem I’m running into is the only design I can find is this one. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2435626, which requires the removal of the ‘tool free’ spindle lock, which I have no idea how to remove, or even how to look that up as I cant find any tutorials or anything explaining how.
So I either need to design my own, which I honestly dont want to do. Figure out how to remove the tool free spindle lock, or find another that works but doesnt involve the removal of that part (Which I dont like the idea of anyways).
So hopefully you guys can give me a little advice on this, I almost have everything together and really excited to get to really making stuff not just trying to sort out problems as they come!October 20, 2017 at 4:13 pm #46366
First, you don’t really need one.
Second, removing that cover on the DeWalt is pretty easy and for a CNC machine, it makes sense.
Thirdly, this one is pretty promising. It needs some beta testers, and you could make any changes you need:October 20, 2017 at 4:16 pm #46368

Oh trust me, I do, I already have a massive mess on my hands from cutting/leveling MDF board that I cant bring myself to even clean completely because I know it will just get messy again till I solve the problem haha.
Hmm might look into that one in the future. but for now, seems I have an easier solution!
Thanks! I’ll be removing that bit right now!
