This is a vacuum hose mount I cut using the CNC I built.

Dust collection is quite a problem using regular air cooled routers due to the air that exits around the collet. The air circulated fine dust around my basement so this was my solution....

Step 1: Measurements

I took measurements of my router and the hose of my shop vac.
If you make another one our of acrylic, the lights would then be able to shine through again.
