Step 1: Cleaning Up the Back Panel
Step 2: Screwing the Back Panel
After trimming I drilled and screwed the back panel on to the cowl laminate
Step 3: Securing the Hood to the Lathe
I fitted another piece of groved wood on top of the first piece and temporally hot glued the back to it before securing it with screws I also added the same to the bottom of the lathe pedestal.
Step 4: Dust Extractor Hood Front
I cut a hole in the side with a 35mm hole saw for the Vac fitting and planed the front down so it was 2mm behind the disc and secured the front on with 2 coach bolts and wing nuts,
The front needs to come off to fix the disc on the spindle.
Step 5: Testing the Extraction
I fitted the shop vac and sanded down a couple of pieces of wood there was no visible dust coming of the disc and very little in the bottom of the extractor when i took the front off.
