Success, I believe:

I was able to get it printed @ Staples for $0.99 --- will cut and assemble next.

99¢ Dust Shoe

Success!

Cut out:

Installed:

Will try it out after nap time.

It probably would've been better to use something softer and more flexible (a sheet protector?). Also, a crevice tool would be a better choice size-wise, but would require more measuring to cut the fitting which holds the dust shoe to the vacuum than I was inclined to mess up.

Finally got to try it out now --- works quite well, vacuum doesn't need to be full tilt (collapses the contraption --- need to see if an elbow or something will help) only a few flecks of dust about.

Looks really nice and clean! I have to ask though, how is the vacuum doing? I hope you can adjust it lower now that it's less space to "vacuum"? And how does it react when going really low in Z, does it get entangled in the mill? Or can it?

Thanks!

It works quite well when I turn the vacuum down to its lowest setting, which is nice for reducing the noise level.

I'm trying to minimize how low it projects down so as to minimize interference.

When it goes down really low along the Z-Axis, the fingers do get chewed up by the bits --- I guess I need to re-design it to have more clearance --- was concerned about losing working area though, hence the original tight fit.

Haven't tried it w/ the new reducer in place, but if it works, will probably just use it until it's too chewed up to work, then re-design --- I want it to fit on a single letter sized sheet though --- may be able to get more space by rotating it, or maybe I'll design it as two pieces which overlap.

Cool :)
I will think about new designs as well, got some half-good ideas, I will post here later :)

I am ready to design a dremel vacuum mount for my next project as suggested by Willadams. Just for those of you who need it as I use a dw660. I would like some input as to body height and width since I don't actually own a dremel to measure off or really need one. I have a cheap harbor frieght knock off to hobb bolts with. Your ideas would be helpful. I'm even happy to give away some prototypes to those who wish to contribute with the understanding that they give feedback, not just take the parts and go silent like some with my dw660 vac attachment. Let me know.

Improbable Construct made a vacuum mount for the DW660 aswell, here is the link if you haven't seen it.

He also provides both g-code and dwg files for the mount, you can take the dimensions out of there? :)

I've seen it. Mine is a bit more complicated. I like to stretch the bounds of my 3d printer and make items you couldn't make any other way. That and I'm cheap and would rather spend time than money lol.
