On thingiverse, the maker talks about the nut trap:
“Attached is a nut wrench with indicator lines for depth to hold nuts as the MPCNC nut retention design needs to be removed to allow for proper air flow”
It might have made sense for anyone using 25 mm.
At the time I was investigating solutions, I was on 3/4 EMT, and my opinion with that for my tubes, was more in line with Carl, even if I removed the nut trap.
Maybe I was creating bigger chips, than the creator.
Or maybe with the almost 1/4 inch more, I would have been fine.
I thought his solution, being similar to Carl’s might have been good a starting point for a dust shoe. Carl has already done the research.
Yep. I’m leaving room to make manual height adjustments. For what I usually do, should not be a huge issue. Probably a bigger deal on the LR where more likely to be making deep cuts.
I’m gonna see how far I can get without a floating shoe, although I could totally see doing something like that in future.
The hassle of collecting dust was a factor in me finding other tools to use more than once. Or dragging the machine outside and blowing dust away during the cut. Hopefully this will solve that problem.
