I was in the process of cutting a bunch of holes for a cold air return floor grate when I couldn’t stand the dust anymore. I spent the weekend building a delrin and popbottle skirt dust collection for my CNC. It works well but I can’t take credit for the design. I was in a hurry so I found the design on inventables just searching for “dewalt 611 dust collection”. I did modify the design to fit my needs by using a clear flexible material for the skirt rather than the black brush you see in most designs.

I have been making since I was a child long before "making" was a thing. I have always had a habit of taking things apart but only sometimes putting them back together. When I was 8 years old or so I took apart the families video camera and couldn't get it back together. Now I tend to turn the things I take apart into something new. I have over 10 years experience building sets, making props, and designing and rigging stunts for the stage. Interests green building design, electronics, alternative energy, welding, prop making, theatrical set design, CNC, engineering
