Dust Pickup for Metal Lathe - 02-18-2019, 07:00 AM

Would anyone be willing to share photos of their dust collection setup for a metal lathe?

I have a 36 inch Enco gear head lathe that I use with a router mounted on the tool post, on the operator side of the cue being turned down.


I considered a plexiglas box but it would seem to be truly bulky to allow the carriage to move down the bed.

Currently, I use a fiberglass enclosure around the router that has a hole for the cue to pass through and there is a portable dust collector attached to this fiberglass box. Too much dust and chips escape through the hole where the cue goes through. Ay one time, I had some rubber strips like fingers that lay over the hole but they got in the way and were not that useful.

I know there must be a good solution. I hope you can help me solve this problem.

He is out of business but I searched some older threads and see several options.

When did he go out of business? I had exchanged info with him late in 18 and still making all the items shown, unless something changed just recently!

I ended up speaking with Tom right after my posting here, he is still happily doing business and making products with certain restraints, he did mention that he thinks that he does have a few dust boxes on hand, so you might want to try and reach out to him

I did reach out to hi and he told me not available, so which is it, he does or does not have them?

Perhaps that came off as harsh but I did contact him by email. His reply "No, sorry".

I don't recall what he said if had them in stock or not, but did say unless he had orders for like 5 he probably wouldn't build any due to the cost involved with making them versus what he sells them for.

Pvc with a vacuum attached is cheap and readily available.
