I freaking love our new dust skirt for our shopbot. The skirt itself snaps on with a bunch of rare-earth magnets. Also the skirt itself is denser making the dust collector WAY more efficient. It is going to make changing the bits a lot easier. Instead of moving the head up 6 inches in the Z axis, I can just set the safe Z at 3" and then there is always room to unsnap the skirt. No more stupid thumb screw in the back. I had to alter the hose and how it hangs. I think I might even change it again and make a hinged gantry thing with a hole in it that gets anchored to the wall. We shall see.
