Hi

I have printed out one of these over the weekend which took about 18 hours. I found the weak part to be the bolt holes. Most of my MPCNC uses M4 bolts and locknuts. Do you have any working files you could share so we could collaborate and make this a truly super addition to the MPCNC Router. My Aim is to rework the main body of the mount and graft on a better attachment.
Look forward to hear from you. I use Designspark Mechanical so if you have the files in RSDOC format that would be even better

regards Stuart

Hello, this is the design for the old version of the MPCNC and dose not fit on the new middle Z assebly. Made this in sketchup but would have to see where are the files as this is from 2015... fkr the new version i found that somebody else already make this mount and i used that one.

Thank you. Do you mean they made a sliding dust collector? for the MPCNC V2? You may just have saved me a lot of time and frustrations.

Kindest regards

Stuart

No only the makita mount for the new assembly, i just added the wings in sketchup only at the bottom of the mount

Perfect, Thank you for your reply.........

Hi

Update for you, I have now Drawn, printed and fettled a new MPCNC V2 Dust Shoe, Incorporating a sliding shoe and springs to hold it tight against the workpiece. Connected to my Dyson it removes every single bit of detritis and leave the work bed spotless.

regards

Hey,

oh nice, well i did not even think of springs to hold it down, i did make too big of a hole on the top of the dust shoe and the makita blows some dirt out but in the end nothing mayor. Do you have any pictures to share?

Thanks for sharing you design. I've been meaning to make a dust shoe. I don't quite understand though what keeps the shoe off the work material . since it slide up and down on the bearings. does it just ride on The
work surface? If so wouldn't it collide with any uneven surfaces where significant material was removed unlike plywood?

Hi. Its still a work in progress :) jea it just slides along the object. but for what i used it till now wokrs terrific. Used it on plywood and on acrylic and had no isses. I did plan it to use some brushes under neath it. But still did not find any suitable flexible brushes loclay. Did find some on a US site but shipping was usd60 and the brush usd 2 :) decided not to get it.
