DIY CNC Dust Boot

Postby OakLines » Sun Nov 22, 2015 6:38 pm

A simple DIY Dust Boot for the Probotix Asteroid. Features a clear dust curtain for good sight lines and Neodymium magnets for easy change overs. Easy to make.

So...
After using the new dust curtain for a week - I've decided that it was in fact too stiff - and reverted back to the thinner and more flexible door sweep. It's much more flexible and conforms better during height changes such as raising and lowering events.

I've tried all manner of strip brush. I finally settled with Fun Foam from a craft supply store. It makes an excellent skirt. Mine's in yellow, so highly visible as well.
