I described what I want, not what I have.

Here's one inspiration: http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic ... 22&p=10510

As I noted, I'm using an old vacuum at a low setting.

I bought the $40 version of the Oneida Dust Deputy. It looks good, but I haven't used it yet. I just cut holes in my bucket lid to mount it, and thought I'd pass my file along.

I'm attaching an SVG to cut a bucket lid with the holes at the right placement/size to attach the Dust Deputy. It's generated from makercam.com and has all the feed speeds and everything entered for a DW660 1/8" bit. Change the file extension back to SVG, then open it in makercam.com (or use it in other software as a starting point).

I'm not responsible for anything bad that happens as a result of using this file.
