I having difficulty responding through the YO! ATX channel. I respond via Gmail and it doesn’t go through. Arghhh!
I have a box “shroud” of a 2020 aluminum frame and Masonite panels. Two doors for access. My CNC will live inside the shroud to contain the dust.
I have a water cooled spindle that needs two water lines, suspended from above, and a 2" vacuum hose I’ll bundle together and suspend with a bungee to give it freedom to move around with the spindle as it traverses the CNC bed (28" x 36").
I want a fabric funnel shaped piece (like a teepee) that I can secure to the top of the Masonite box. I’ll reinforce the frame with a plywood circle at the bottom side with Velcro. The top of the teepee could be zip tied or Velcroed around the vacuum hose and water lines. I was anticipating using Velcro on the vertical seam that allows me to install and remove it as needed.
Teepees are basically a half circle of fabric. Just works out that way. The bottom seam (at the circumference) would be about 7 feet long. I’ll staple the “other” part of the Velcro to the plywood circle. The part where they come together I’m guessing would be 3 feet long and that requires both hook and loop parts of the Velcro. I need to consult professor Google for the precise geometry.
That’s the project.
Thanks for your reply Martin
