Hi gang;
Here's another type of holder for the Makita-includes a dust skirt, vac attachment, and an LED ring light which is switch controlled;
LED runs on 12VDC- an old mobile phone adapter

Looking at this again, I think using M3 insertion nuts would be the hot ticket for under the magnets and will have to try that if I ever move on from the current version.

Do you have these in DXF still?

I never had them in DXF --- I only posted SVG, which is the original format, save for the .pdf which I made using Freehand and that source file (since I draw pretty much everything up in Freehand).

Will this mount fit the Shapeoko 2? Specifically, does it provide enough clearance at the top of the router? Planning on getting the Makita RT0701 as it seems to be one of the best spindles.

It would fit on a Shapeoko 2, but w/ the stock Z-axis configuration, would limit travel.

I have about 4.125" from the top of the top mount to the top of my router, and 6" or so from the top of the top mount to the tip of a very long endmill --- might be usable --- I'll try to find the time to dismantle my two machines this evening and try swapping things around.

Of course, one could just add a block or extend the mount a bit.

Did you mill the mount yourself?
