Having removed most of the dust with my previous under the table jig http://lumberjocks.com/projects/37469
I decided it was time for the more important feature of dust removal. Over the top dust removal.
I wanted to make the whole arm thing out of aluminum since I dislike hard on the eyes jigs and projects no matter how useful. But after checking on aluminum prices, I decided my eyes could bear the brunt of hideousness and also the arm is 105 inches long and aluminum comes in 84 inches mostly.
So’ onward with leftover wood scraps.
The fun part was making the plexi glass dust housing. It’s airtight and EZ on the eyes and that’s what matters. It’s has the 2.5 inch hose connection interface. And It’s 3/8 thick as you can see from the pics. The weld or glue was hard to work with but considering the difficulty level, very little mess.
So, I guess I have to live with the wood version. ;-(
