    Eddy look for industrial Garage door brush strips and you'll find them at 100mm +.

    Thanks, I think I tried that a while back and found they were quite expensive as you were also paying for the aluminium part that will probably be discarded, I read somewhere that just the brush can be bought on a roll that you just cut to length and it's flexible but might have been in USA

    Edit: This was the best place I found a few weeks ago but postage on long lengths killed it, if local pick up it would be ideal.

    Hi Eddy,

    Sorry, been busy making new bed, cutting replacement aluminium parts, buying new drivers and PSU, designing new control box, straightening and setting up ballscrews. Not cut any wood for a while so dropped down the list for now . . .

    I've made a few dust shoes over the years and tried both bristles and clear plastic cut into strips. I tend to favour the plastic strips as you can see through and make sure all is well. Still intend to make the floating design above and will post when I've finally made it.

    Do you have a source for these plastic strips ?

    Sorry Eddy, it was just some plastic sheet I had lying around. You can see the floating shoe and plastic skirt on my old machine . . .

    So what I did for my shoe was cut a channel and then got a wall paper brush and cut all the bristles off it and epoxied them into the channel. It took a little while but it works great so far.

    Here is the design for the shoe I made: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7e...it?usp=sharing

    its all made of 12mm acrylic and has press fit magnets which go into each part of the shoe so i can snap the brush part off for tool changes etc.

    Sounds intersting but it's a link to a Vectric file and I can't open it.

    Hi everyone, what trim length of brush do you need ? I'm asking because if you get to long a trim length then the brush filaments can soon get wrapped around the cutter on a direction change. Ripped brushes flying about the workshop and a damaged spindle come to mind. Something none of us want.
