Dust Boot

Post by Lodds » Thu Nov 26, 2020 9:03 am

I have recently built a Shapeoko 3 XL with Z+. The included dust boot fits fine on the Dewalt but is too small on the Makita, the other issue with this boot is that it is not independent of the Z axis and did cause an issue which I suppose would have been obvious to more experienced CNCer.

I have been looking for a supplier of a dust boot system that is independent of the rising and falling of the Z axis. During investigation I found two suppliers "Suckit" and "PWNCNC", Suckit no longer supply a dust boot option for the Shapeoko 3 leaving just PWNCNC which is Stateside (I'm in the UK)

Does anyone know of an alternative to PWNCNC I'd like a couple of different options and have no issues buying from the US but can be costly due to import taxes that are added when arrived in the UK.

TIA
