Seperate Hoses

From Shopbot Wiki

  • Hang the hose from a pocket door track that's mounted to the ceiling and parallel to the X axis motion. A spring support (car antenna) was "post engineered" to stop the hose from closing off under suction at the support.


  • An arm that's mounted to a wall and follows the bot can support a 6" Dust Collector hose with a 6x4x4 Y for two cutting axis. One unintended feature came from having to mount the plate a little skewed, which makes the arm naturally want to rotate to the far corner of the wall. It always insures that the hose will be leading (or following) the bot properly.
