Thx. Larry.

The skirt is on the boot in the first pic. The material is from McMaster . . . http://www.mcmaster.com/#7372t6/=sdlziy . . . (another thank you to Gary). Been pretty durable.

I've made (2) skirts so far . . . 3" and 2". Haven't seen any issues with cutting the brushes. If so, little bit of a hassle but I suppose you could stop and switch out to a shorter one if necessary.

Thumbs up Das boot

Brother Paul has sent me with an early birthday present!

Talk about a nice piece of engineering and machining

I'm going to hook it up in the next day or so and get you guys some more pictures.

The bottom does look like a little boat.

Great design

Looks nice.

@Larry - Let us know how it goes.

After reading a few dust boot threads I'm considering purchasing the Kent. Will hold off and may go with Paul's das boot.

I'm not trying to bash the kent dust boot. It performs very well and the magnetic brush assembly is very handy. But... Unfortunately when I was tightening mine on my router the acrylic broke! The design for the clamping area where the bolt goes through is very weak. Although they still warn in the instructions about being cautious when tightening. After a couple different unsuccessful fixes I ended up cutting the factory dust boot to fit just under the router to use use the factory bolts. And then screw the kent dust boot to that. Works great. And stronger than just a single clamp.

Looks nice

Sorry for not reporting in sooner guys and I want to apologize to Paul for my tardy response but been busy working on art projects, rentals, cad work, and enjoying the last days of summer with sweet Katie.

Too busy to do much cutting even, but once Katies starts back to school next week, I hope to start making some sawdust.

Just to be clear I knew this was a beta version and was nonplussed with what I got,
Paul was happy for the feedback and he was quick to modifying his design and sending me new brush rings by EXPRESS Mail to make sure I was up and running.

I got beta version and had some minor adjustments because my spindle mount was a bit different then his.
Paul also might have held some tolerances a bit too tight.
My Laser rubed on the side and my bracket kept the unit from mounting flush.

But with some deft Dremal work it was defeated.

Very happy with the fit and finish

We also learned something about the brush ring too!

Will all that suction concentrated around the bit, my long brushes got pulled up in the sawdust and clog..
Shorting the brushes helped a lot.
It also seems that I'm able to have a bigger gap between my substrate and brush.

But Heck, what do I know.
I've only been doing this for a year

Thanks again Paul for all your work on this design.

Paul... Love the bike.

I'm still using the dasBoot daily. There were a couple minor repairs required, but overall has held up well.
