At some point, they turned PM's off for new members. I believe that you can ask them to activate it. I know PM's work for me, but I've been a member there for a long time.

With a 10HP or larger spindle, I'd recommend a 3-5HP collector, with 5-6" hose to the spindle, if you'll be making aggressive cuts.

Vacuum doesn't really work that way. Maximum vacuum is achieved with zero air flow. If air is moving, it's because you are losing vacuum.
The only way to get max vacuum is to completely seal the...

That would mean zero air is flowing through your MDF, so no vacuum would be available on the other side.

1) You have to clarify what "small parts" means.


2) Material of the parts can effect vacuum requirements. How hard the material is, and how smooth and flat it is can make a big difference.

A single pass slot is not affected by cut direction. The deeper the cut, the more it might pull into the conventional side, but the slot width should not change.

It's very difficult to accurately measure a bits diameter with calipers.
My preference is to cut a shallow slot, and measure the slot width.

If you're not in a hurry, V-Carve it, then brush a heavy coat of epoxy into the carved areas. When cured, carve it again, about .005" deeper.

The carved areas will be smooth as glass.

Depending on how many doors you need, buying them from a door manufacturer may be a better option.
You likely won't save any money building your own.

Router table or shaper would be much faster, and probably more consistent, unless you have a jig with clamps to hold the parts down.

If you install it, check back in a few days, as I'm finishing up an updated version. I might get it done tonight, but I'm not sure.
