Thread: Lathe dust collection

    Lathe dust collection

    And it works! I finally got around to running ducts all the way around my shop to the lathe. I wish I had done this a year ago.

    I made it so the cleat fits between the ways and can be twisted in place. That way I don't need to get to either end of the ways to slip it on.

    I still need to tweak things a bit, like the location of the hose, the length of the 'banjo', and so on.

    Joe, that's an awesome idea!!
    Hope you don't mind if I use that.

    Heh, nope, use away. I borrowed the idea from a similar one I saw elsewhere. LMK if you need more detailed construction notes.

    Wow Joe, I missed this when it was first posted. The DC at the lathe sure makes a difference, huh? I believe I'm going to be stealing the heck out of your idea. Thanks much for sharing it. I'd already figured on the narrow cleat idea for a steady rest, but your mount has given me some ideas to expand upon for the Big Gulp.
