    Dust Boot Update

    Well, the first dust boot I had made really wasn't working all that great. It kept any ambient dust out of the air, but really didn't pick up stuff off the workpiece. It was a little too big, the brushes were a little too long.

    Add to that the fact that I left it on the workbench and some other stuff got piled on it that bent the brushes, well, it was time for a new one.

    So Instead of doing the fancy schmancy curved brush, I make a simple little rectangular one. It's much smaller, and users the shorter door sweep material. It also actually works great!

    You can see the new one mounted on the spindle, and the old one in the background.

    Nice. I need to do one for my shorter bits which may just get used all the time since I can adjust mine up and down on the weaver rail.
