Catching up,I ended up putting the Dust Deputy in.Im using the 5.75hp 16gal shop vac with 2 1/2" hose from vac to deputy and from deputy to a reducer on the side of the enclosure it reduces down to 1 1/2" to the dust shoe.I added a bungie cord with a ballend and an eyelet to keep the hose out of the way.I also had to cut a ring out of another 5gal bucket and slip in inside the deputy collection as it was caving in without it.
Im using a diffrent dust shoe now
Its magnetic and alot faster to create.found it here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1645328 made the brushes from craft foam sheets from michaels (A craft store here) and used gorilla super glue to attach it,its the clear kind that dosent expand.
Hard to take a pic of or see but i added led’s under the x axis the complete lenght of the gantry
I also put the router/vac/and lights on a remote system,Has been working great,added a spidy fan grille too
Excuse the wire mess,I really need to tidy up.
I ended up relocating the emergency stop switch,was interfering with the drag chain from time to time and used the shapeoko dog tag to hide the hole.I prefer its location now with it all by itsself.
Santa was good to me this year and got a new tv for the house,the best part the shop got the old 40" hand me down
