Kapex Dust Collection Modification
« on: January 12, 2015, 03:13 AM »
Hi Guys,

Just wanted to share a little modification I've been tinkering with. So far I'm very pleased with the results !!

Do you think there is a risk that the 'hair' can get caught by the blade and drag the whole dust shroud off?

Did you wait for your partner to be asleep before using the scissors  [wink]

Interesting same idea same as you get around a cnc cutter. Does it work as well as the original rubber one, obviously it must flex better

I certainly did wait peter !!! [big grin]

I made a few of these, playing with the length of the bristles, making multiple cuts at different bevels and angles, and I have no concerns with any interaction with the blade !

I feel it works much better than the original one. If you look closely, the attachment of the bristles is onto the factory shroud.

I felt I could improve upon the shroud, as the larger dust particles always made it underneath the rubber shroud.....this made a huge difference !

I have sacrificial facings on the left and right moveable fence and these extend into the centre to form a zero clearance splinter reducer. I find that the original dust shroud does catch on that and although is deforms itself to get by with no problem it does reduce its dust catcher capability whilst distorted.

I imagine that the bristles do not all distort at once which might improve the overall dust collection.

A nice idea and worth seeing again after a couple of months or regular use. Meanwhile you might like to see whether you can market the idea.

If you're planning to sell them, how much? Do you need any beta testers? [wink]

If you aren't planning to sell them would you be willing provide more details, publicly or privately?

very ingenious.  This got posted over on BTP and I thought it was a GREAT idea!

I "upgraded" my axialglide to the kapex boot and it made a huge difference but I REALLY like this idea. 

What are you using for bristle material/holder??  It looks pre-made and then attached to the festool boot but just cut to length?

Nice idea and execution. I have the same issue that Peter  described with the zero clearance  on the fence. I think that this is the fix for my issue.

The bristles in this length and configuration  funnily enough are very hard to come by unless your order 15 miles of the stuff !!!!

We are fine tuning the design, but based upon the interest I'm seeing, we will get a batch of these made up   [smile]

I have used the same process on many of my tools also.  I have 4" brushes around my tablesaw shrouds and cut with virtually no dust. 
I also did something similar on my Makita sliding chopsaw.  I have been using NGP bust seals as we use them extensively in the commercial door work we do.  I am glad to see there is a source with PVC holders as all of NGP's are aluminum.  I use 1" brushes clipped to my 55 and 75 when I am cutting plastics as even Festools extraction does not capture that mess.

I believe this is closer to what he is using:

http://www.mcmaster.com/#strip-brush-holders/=vlxewl

Look about halfway down the page for "Easy-Cut Strip Brushes and Holders"

And it's cheap - $2.28 per foot for a 1" brush, and $3-$4 per foot for the holder, depending on style. You could easily make two of these (because you have to buy a minimum of a foot of material) for less than $10. That doesn't count your time, of course.

wow,

Thank you, that was a most helpful link.  As I have a need for a similar application on a non-Festool tool, I also did some research and found the material available in several places.  However, your link seems to be the best, both price wise and in ability to purchase in smaller amounts.

Hi guys,

I apologize for not responding more hastily. Yes, the 3 " bristles are readily available, and that's what I used for the first prototype that you see pictured. However, to reach the base of the saw, this had to be attached to the factory rubber boot, which still does not work with a zero clearance fence as well as it could.

The ones I'm putting together now completely replace the rubber boot by attaching the same way as the boot does. This way you have full length bristles, and no rubber boot. This way it can be used effectively with a zero clearance fence.

It was the longer bristles that were hard to source, as 1-3 inches seemed to be the standard.

Hi Guys/Girls

I am ready to start accepting firm commitments for the modified dust boot.

At this time, this will be a single run of this product, so I will allow 14 days for people to place their order, so take a look at the videos posted, and see if this is a product you'd like to have.

I had a tremendous response, and a lot of members wanting one, but this was prior to the video & pricing. So I would kindly ask all these folks to take a look at the videos, and consider the price, and just let me know if you'd still like one.

The boot will come exactly as you see in the video, you will just need to use your existing boot clip, and attach it to the modified boot.

Kapex Modified Dust Boot - $ 45.00 + shipping

Order Deadline - March 15th

PM me for ordering/payment/shipping details.

Maybe there is a serious issue that someone who knows Dave needs to investigate. I think a lot of people might be worried about his welfare. If he is in over his head with his offer to make the dust gadgets then he needs to know that people will understand.

Dave's company is only a half hour or so from me. I've left him a voicemail just now to check on his welfare, and if I don't hear from him in a day or two (when I can drive again) I might try to pay him a visit.

Hopefully he's just incredibly busy...

If you do make contact please make him aware that there are quite a few of us worried about his wellbeing.

Hi Guys,

I apologize I've been absent, and to cut a long story short, I had a family emergency I've had to deal with back over in England which rendered me useless for the past weeks. But the worst is behind me, so its time to get moving.

I appreciate greatly everyones concern !

Wow, i did receive your VM late last night, and i will give you a jingle some time today, but in advance, thank you for the concern.

And the same also goes to Seth.

Anyway, to the nitty gritty, i will contact everyone individually whom requested the dust boot over the next few days, and get them heading everyones way asap, and obviously due to the circumstances, i will make them readily available.

Thank you for everyones patience and understanding.

Dave

I hadn't heard back from you so I bought the sawstache from fastcap and will just make my own.

Good luck on your future ventures.

Cheers

Hey Dave,  I know your KPEX dust collection modification was years ago, are they still available?
