Adjustable stop with dust extraction system for milling machine

Hello, dear readers and homemade products!
As you know, when processing parts on a milling machine, a huge amount of dust and sawdust is generated. Without an active dust removal system (or better a central vacuum cleaner), the carpentry workshop quickly becomes like a desert with dunes. But instead of sand – wood dust.
In this article, the author of the YouTube channel “dustin penner” will tell you how to make an additional stop for a milling machine with adjustable gates for efficient operation of the dust extraction system.
 Adjustable stop with dust removal system for milling machine This project is very easy to manufacture, and can be easily completed even in a small carpentry workshop.
Materials needed for DIY.
– T-shaped aluminum track < br>– Rip stop (T-track)
– Furniture cut-in nuts, wing-head screws
– Sheet plywood, wood glue, countersunk head wood screws.
Tools used by the author.
– Manual router
– Wood milling cutters
– Screwdriver
– Wood drills with countersink
– Forstner drills
– Circular saw, saw blades
– F-clamps, chisels
– Precision carpentry ruler
– Industrial vacuum cleaner.
Manufacturing process.
So, sheet plywood with a thickness of 18 mm will serve as the main material for the stop. The master cuts out a set of parts from it on a circular saw. Unfortunately, the exact dimensions of each of them are not given, and this is not required – for each machine, the dimensions must be selected individually.
The main reference point is the height and length of either an existing parallel stop, or you can even start from the length of the milling table (such the same length and should be emphasized).

In order for the sides and partitions to be reliably glued to the base, the master decided to make a shallow cut in the joints.
By setting the parallel stop at a distance of the plywood thickness from the saw blade, parallel to the long sides of the upper part of the base, cuts are made about 2 mm deep.

At first, only two slots are formed.

To compensate for the height difference between the sides, the author had to cut out trapezoidal partitions (with a bevel at the top).

Their total length coincides with the length of the entire stop. The height of the panels is slightly higher than the height of the facade, it will be clear later.

The upper part of the holes is countersunk so that the nuts fit tightly into place.

The front and back edges of this part must be made at a slight slope so that it fits smoothly into place.

The dust extraction chamber is ready.

So they will in no way interfere with work, or cling.
