The purpose of the pressure foot is to enable milling or engraving more precise depths in thinner materials without having to use clamps. Perfect for PCBs and wood, MDF, plastic or Al templates.
I only use the Hitachi M12V router dust chute because I had one. It is relatively expensive because Hitachi M12V (EOL) parts can now only be purchased from spare parts stores online, so please use whatever you can find for current model products or make one yourself. Please google.
Dust Chute using CNC Automatic Pressure Foot mounted
I am sorry that I cannot show machine working since it is Winter & very cold here in Melbourne, Australia and I could not work in my detached shade where the vacuum host is normally hung from the ceiling.
I have taken the CNC router into the house to do design work as suggested by my wife but I could not hang any vacuum host to show as I do not have any hooks in the house ceiling.
I only have a small machine because I only use it to make smaller items and/or templates for routers to make bigger items by hand held routers and router tables.
I use a mini-cyclone connected to a shopvac with a SHOPVAC drywall bag filter + SHOPVAC HEPA cartridge filter.
Works very well - better than a fan type DUSTY.
