I need to create an enclosure for my XXL, because the dust issue is about to become over whelming.
What are the “keep out” dimensions that you all are using? Height / Width / Length?
I’m trying to also figure out the Human Factors issues in combination with other improvements.
I do have a few ideas:
Create a replacement cap, custom 3D printed part, for the Makita, that has features to attach a 1.5" hose to the top of it, the other end of the hose would attach to underside of the enclosures roof / top panel. The idea is to let cleaner cool air to the spindle. The sock filter over the top of the Makita isn’t working for me yet.
I am thinking that the front access door should be at an angle, such that the top edge of the doors is further back than the front edge. This would improve visibility.
For side access to clean and what not, I’m thinking that the sides should also be a combination of door and wall. The lower part would be the wall, maybe as high as the Y-rails top surface? The window-door would be above that height all the way to the ceiling.
Maybe, there should be a back access panel that is similar in function to the side access idea (#3.)
At the moment sound is not an issue so much, but if there is a thin sound absorbing material that would drop the noise down a bit that would also be nice.
Thank you in advance for your advice!
