Yes I watched the video but it's not real clear how it mounts to the router except for the sleeve around the motor not sure if that is all that holds it up or not.  It is set up for a 4" hose not sure if it can accept a vac hose or not and if that is adequate for that shoe.  I have asked him some questions but no answer as of yet.

I am considering the KentCNC dust show.  It looks good but am trying to find out exactly how it attaches and if it will fit my router.  Does anyone have experience with this?

I had to reinstall mach so did that set up my table 25 x 39 etc.  Homing and Limits I set home min X -25 and home y min -39 and Z was at 3.  I set up x & Y for zero at - numbers.  those are the only setting I have done so far.

The air filter is a good idea.  I have another problem though.  I do not have a dust shoe as it's called.  I bought one years ago have had no luck using it.  It mounts in a permenant position with long brushes made of aluminium.  During most cutting the brushed can get caught up in the router bit.It does not move up and down like most allowing for some of the smaller carving bits to be used.  that is why I have so much dust it's a vac job after every cutting.
