Re: Dewalt 611 Deflector and Dust Shoe

I had to modify this file pretty heavily for my needs. I am not a fan of the way this file was generated; I'll readily admit I have zero desire to learn SCAD, especially since you can't export in a file format compatible with ANY OTHER CAD PROGRAM ON THE PLANET.
