  3. Re: dust collection from CNC router Vac or duct collector?

    Harbor freight but look at craigslist also. Sometimes you can find a good deal there. My machine came with a 4HP double bag collector and I didn't expect much out of it but it really sucks, in a...

  12. Re: I'm stuck as to what I use as a base to clamp the job in the machine?
