I have a Shopsmith and like to turn wood but I do not like the mess. Seems like every time I would turn something I would spend lots of time cleaning saw dust off of everything behind and under the Shopsmith. I recently got a TechShop membership and it helped spark some creativity. With the ability to use the Shopbot at Techshop I was inspired to come up with this design. Turns out it works great. I made it at TechShop. www.TechShop.ws
2 ea 1/2 in x 24in x 32in Birch plywood
1 ea 5' X 5' Canvas
10 ft of adhesive back Velcro
3/4 in X 5.5 in X 16 in piece of hardwood for clamps
1 ea 4in vacuum attachment
I measured the Shopsmith to see how to mount the sides. I then created a CAD file and exported it to a .DXF. This I then brought into V-Carve and created the tool paths for cutting out the sides.
Then using the Shopbot I cut out the sides.
