This is a dust shoe for the DeWalt DWP611. I tried a few others, but was unwilling to drill and tap my router, and the design by nMackes didn't fit... but I liked the design. So, I took it as a base inspiration, and designed my own. It uses 24 (3 packs) cheap harbor freight rare earth magnets (sku 67488), a 1/4x20 nut and bolt, and (optionally) a 2" hose clamp to secure your 1.25" shopvac hose in place if a friction fit doesn't hold it well enough. For the actual brushes, I'm using some pond liner polypropylene rubber sheet hot glued in place, which I found in the garden department at Home Depot.

Here is a link to the magnets:

I secured them in place with a RVT, but you can probably use some other mechanism for securing them that you favor. Just be sure to get the + and - poles of your magnets lined up correctly when you fit them, and the lower shoe will just snap right into place.

I made two different lower sections, with different bristle lengths, for depending on the endmill length I'm using, as having overly long ones when not needed reduces the effectiveness of the shopvac.

it actually helps alot,im more of a visual person,thanks alot for taking the time to add the extra pictures,i hope to have it installed on the machine this week :)

Can you elaborate on the brush some more,I have this printed came out nice but need to add the brushes,can you add a pic with the brush installed?

For brushes I've added the pic as requested. You can use almost anything really as long as it's stiff or heavy enough to not be sucked into the vacuum intake yet still flex or bend enough for clearance. I used the pond liner sheet, as that's what I had on hand.

thanks for the reply...are you just gluing it vertical on the underside? can you show the track part with it glued in place please.thanks alot

Yes it's glued into the track on the bottom of the second piece the magnets attach with. That channel is something like 1/8" wide, or something like that... A photo wouldn't show anything really useful. It's just pushed into the slot and affixed in place. I can try and remember to take a photo, but really, it's not going to show you anything other than the existing shots.

Ok thanks alot Wookie

Just added two photos of the dust shoe brush setup for ya. Not that I think it'll be that much more helpful, but there they are, just in case.
