On this legacy ornamental mill I have is thick strips of clear flexible plastic that are laid overlapping each other to stop the chips from flying all over the place. Something that came with the machine. And being clear I can still see a little through it. This is where I might be positioned to watch the router while it is running. Wouldn't be hard to make something like that.. This soft plastic is about 1/16" thick. I thought they overlapped a little but after looking that is one piece with slits cut about 1 1/4" apart.

  You should be able to make one that circles the router with out much problems.

I think most everyone gets the brush strips from McMaster Carr.

Yeah, I keep thinking I'm going to do the same thing but the one I built out of MDF and a $5 broom from Lowe's a year ago as a temp is still working - go figure!  If I had been trying to build one to last it would probably have failed by now - LOL!

Maybe that's what I should a dood foist

Instead I got a brush made for the purpose but it's too stiff. I think I'll try the cheap garbage from the BORG

Mine is actually a bit too stiff, as well.  But I make it work.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
