Brush for dust shoe in europe

Post by plastik » Thu Mar 10, 2016 9:10 am

Hi all,
Does anyone know where I can source flexible brush strip for my dust shoe in Europe (ideally France)?
After several searches, I only find that kind of stuff on US websites (like for example on kentCNC) and the shipping cost is higher than the price of the brush itself...

Thanks

I bought a roll from Aliexpress. Just search under "cnc brush". Of course, you'll need to be patient as shipping will take a month.

I found that brush strips, even the softest ones, are two stiff. When the z access plunges downwards the z would have a hard time pushing it down. I tried them as an angle, but when the bristles end up in the pocket you are cutting they also would be hard to compress. Horse hair brush was a bit better cause they bend easier, but mounting them was harder cause the mount was a hard bulky, non bendable mount. I found my best brush so far has been a ⅛" thick rubber that I glued on and cut into strips.


This is with the thinnest softest brush mc master Carr sells. I'll post pictures of the rubber one when I get a chance

I could also only find stiff brushes, so I made a dust shoe that's not moving up and down with the router, I think it works pretty nice.
Also added a quick release for easy height adjustment and tool change;

I tried brush strip and it was also stopping the Z axis plunging down. I ended up buying the cheapest, most basic foam mousepad I could find. It has a thin layer of plastic on one side, which gives it enough strength to hold its shape, but it moves easily over the material. And they cost about $5 each!

That is an excellent idea! I think I will try out something similar!
