Just uploaded the dxf and nc files for the plywood dust chute to the Community Garden. The biggest trouble I had was finding a good tool choice for the thin sheet metal slots. The slot was just over 1/16", so I programmed the slots for this 1.5mm end mill. It’s pretty close to a 1/16" end mill, the slot might be a little sloppy if you use one.
See this page to download the new 2D CAD file. See the layers for the material, tooling, and cut depths.
See this page to download the new nc files. See the comments in the files for material and tooling selection.
I still need to modify the actual sled base with slots to accommodate this dust chute. Once I do that, I will start locating all the holes for the rail guides. I’m trying to get through all the corrections I have listed above.
EDIT: So I was tired last night and made an oversight. The body of the plywood dust collector is supposed to use these threaded inserts to mount the acrylic window, which I should have noted when I wrote this up. Additional, I noted that the holes for these are drilled blind, which may not allow you to thread the insert in fully. These should be thru holes, I’ll try to make the change to the dxf and nc files if I have enough bandwidth tonight when I get home.
