Better add some sort of dust collection to this thing before I do anymore testing!
This is what the finished “hood” looks like-
Had the ½” plywood from another project. This is just a simple box. I wanted some way to hold it in place and be able to remove it without tools. Made two brackets from 1” aluminum angle “iron” to catch one side and some button magnets for the other side. Dust collection is a 2 ½” angled port that connects into the collection system.
The box sits on the frame and slides into place. The hold down is a large head screw.
Had to buy a few more magnets and the dust collection port.
Well, that’s pretty much it! Thanks for wading through my ramblings. If you have any questions, suggestion, criticisms, or need information, just let me know. Also, if you know of some other neat sites for building these, please add them to the comments to help anyone else get some ideas.
