Mike's dust foot

I have not posted in a month on my machine. Updates include dust collection and dust foot.

The dust foot was done a litle different than everyone elses. Had to try something different. I designed a top and a bottom with a reinforcing ring to help hold the upright pvc tube. The bottom is only opened around the bit to increase suction there. The sweep goes all the way around the dust foot. Here are a couple pictures.

Also I have a plastic drum to collect the bulk the the dust, about 99% plus goes into the drum and keeps the dust bag clean and pretty much empty. Alot easier to dump a barrel than fight that bag.

More info on the dustfoot.

The dust foot has three pieces. Top, bottom, and ring. I really like designing in solids with Mastercam. I bent a piece of aluminium arund the foot to hold the sweep. The front comes off to changebits with two screws.
