Designing a dust collector

Designing a dust collector

Electronics
After working with wood and MDF, I quickly realized that I needed something to collect all the dust.  I couldn't fix a ready-made design so I grabbed some good ideas in existing design and rolled out my own. Requirements: Transparent enough to be able to see the spindle / work area Clamp-on spindle Removable vacuum hose - store away when not used Allow for long / short tool lenght Flexible bristles so as not to snag into the material Magnetic dust shoe to allow quick access to work area and different bristles lengths Cheap!
