Well this is the first 3D milling ever done on any CNC machine. The exhaust diverter works perfectly. The screw holes line up with the stock Dewalt screws, but require 1/2" thicker. Still need to mill the bottom attachment, holding the brush.
Kind of bummed that (going by memory) my Makita doesn’t have similar screw holes — I don’t think anyone else has used them for this — surprised.
VERY NICELY DONE!
Do you have plans for a skirt or brush? I don’t see places for magnets (the common solution) so it will be interesting to see how you’re going to approach the skirt/brush.
General design guideline. The skirt brush must be as far away from the tool as the height of the brush - otherwise the brush gets eaten (but they tool).
have you tried/thought about PMMA so you can see the cutting tool while machining?
