Default Dust shoe reboot (no pun intended)

I made an MDF dust shoe a few weeks ago and thought I'd make another one to try some different things on for size (sorry, another 'shoe' reference... ugh!). The first thing I did was to make the holes the correct size. On the first one I made the spindle hole 4" dia. when in fact it is 100mm (3.93"). That meant I had to do some makeshift shimming and it was only holding so-so and I wanted a better fit. The second thing I did is to label the sides 'Dust' and 'No Dust' so the dust and chips will know which side is which...

This is as far as I got on the little project - more later. Ultimately I want to make one out of Acrylic or Plexiglas but right now MDF will suffice.


Nothing to do with woodworking at all, just our music at church (I'm the guy with the Koa Takamine) - Airline Baptist Church BC Songs
