Holy moley 2! Totally impressive! Well thought out and implemented. I can at least dream in 3D about having such a system:P

I suspect best to keep small animals away from any openings:lol:

Thanks Herb for taking the time to post. Much appreciated.

Probably tough on the impeller, but at least it got lubricated. 

 

Great job on the upgrades, why did you cut out the bottom of the router box, to get in fresh air??

Pat, the way my DC is set up the fan sucks out of the top of the cyclone, the only dust it sees is in the air going to the filters, which is fine dust. anything heavy has already fallen out. Good observation though.

 

The router motor is sucking in air to cool the motor, if it is enclosed inside the box,two things occur, First is that it is sucking chips through the motor, and secoundly it is fighting the dust collector which is trying to pull air out of the box, thus cutting down airflow. The DC air flow out of the box keeps the chips from falling through the bottom (around the cut out) because air is being sucked into the box.

Uhhh, looks like you need to start building Router Bit Storage 2.0 ASAP.:D

 

Very nice BTW.

You are right,I still have more 1/2" bits and then there are this many 1/4" bits.  Well might just have to do the Jessem table too. Another project for another day.

I got a question. How do you like that MLCS slider?  Any slop or chatter? got any pics of the bearing carriage ?
