I know! The dust boot I think I can design..but his pipe brackets are really cool. That area near the spindle has the potential to take up some of the X travel so you have to be careful I think.

I considered the x travel on my design, if you look on the picture, the dust tube and the plate at the back is almost the same edge, you might just loose maybe 5mm x travel on the right but its worth it. :D
