    The $10.00 Plumbing Dust boot ..Main piece was 65mm on the smaller section so it fitted the makita router perfectly. i then cut and glued the smaller section to it overnight. 2 small brackets to reinforce at the top and a adjustable screw for height.As you can see from the video i allow a gap 6mm at the bottom and it seems to suck up 90% of the sawdust.No plastic flap No brushes it just works.Ok how do i change the tool,first i set my z height on the work piece then i reset. then i move the router up and away to the far right and attatch the dust boot. press start and away she goes have yet to work out the vacuum position .Last photo is my spindle bracket . cheers
