Thanks. Here's a few pictures of the setup as it exists right now. I've added some small bungees to manage positioning of the vac line and spindle power line. I've also added a "Power Management Console."
Image
From left to right the switches turn on: Lights (I added a 2 foot led which works great), electronics, vac, and spindle. The single switch cuts power to all four, stopping the machine...just in case.

The black markings on the clamping table indicate the working limits of the machine.

Her'es a couple of renders of the Cyclone for my vacuum. I'm using several design ideas stolen from Winston Moy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kr7Xht1dndA, but, I've modified the design to use a single bucket. This reduces the overall capacity from 5 gallons to about 4, but it saves volume of space occupied by only using one bucket. I sandwich an o-ring sealed lid between the top and bottom pieces of MDF and run a straight piece of PVC terminating in an elbow inside the bucket. I've added a short extension to the elbow to aid the cyclonic effect. So far, this works great.

The vac hose enters the system here. The top plug is easily removable, just in case the line needs to be cleaned.

Here's a quick clip of everything working. I'm making a hand mirror for a friend out of a piece of highly figured wild cherry that's been drying in the basement for a couple of years.

Here's the rough cut piece before any finishing. Edges rounded over on router.

Here's the same part with a little v-carving. Keeping it simple to show off the wood rather than the carving.

And the final product. Unfortunately, the camera cannot effectively show the effects of 10-12 coats of Tung oil. The mirror is hardly necessary.

Made a simple modification that is quickly becoming a favorite.
I added a strip of double sided tape along the edge, outside of the work area. To this I attached a simple strip of wide masking tape folded over on itself. The machine runs behind this and it prevents chips from getting in the wheels or under the rails.

The images explain it all.

That's really clever. Going to copy that. :)

Added a dragknife. Here's a photo of stages in development...left to right. The final works like a charm. Adding corner actions is still a trick. If anyone has any suggestions other than the ones offered by Donek (already tried those with limited success), I'd love to hear them.
