Today I fixed the problem with Dust collection and my drill press. I got a new forstner bit (my first one), and i realized that unlike my hole saw and spade bits, it shoots the shavings up and out as opposed to down. I have MANY MANY other things I do that cause immense dust, but the forstner bit made the most and pushed me to build this. I have a build that I made for my drill press spindle sander which you can find in my other projects, but that didn’t cut it for much anything else.
It took me a while to design this (and could have been designed better), but I decided that this was good enough for my shop. I initially made the arm to not include a way to swivel left or right which is the last picture in my list.
I made a video that was before I added the swivel so that it wasn’t as close as I wanted it. That is why i added a swivel to it. It does collect much better since i added the swivel than in the video, but you get the idea. Here is the link to the video. https://youtu.be/X4MAXhhXCB0
That’s it. Hope you like it. If not, lie to me. :)
