Special Pixels to Prototype Dust Boot designed for the Onefinity CNC!
I spent hours and hours testing and trying many dust boots on several CNCs that I have had over the years. I had some that the brush piece would dislodge and cause ruined jobs. I have had others that made it so frustrating to make tool changes that I tried to avoid them at all costs! Well after all this trial and error, I have come up with the design you see here -- the Pixels to Prototype dust boot. This dust boot is designed from the ground up in Fusion360 making it very easy to adjust and adapt for many different machines, spindles, and setups. If you have a custom need, please to not hesitate to reach out!
Default brush is the Flex Brush option. Stiffer brush is available by request. Standard Brush length is 3".
*** Please note that the Boot Brush may need to be trimmed for your specific setup. The 3" brush is long enough to cover most tools, but typically needs to be cut back for small tools. Please use caution when first setting up the boot and consider buying a second brush so that you can have short and long options.
*** If you are running a high powered Dust Collector, please add a comment that you require a stiffer brush. Our standard brushes are great for most Hobby CNCs and are very flexible which does not hamper Z axis movement, but can be overcome by high powered systems like the Laguna Flux if this is the only connection to the system. We offer a stiffer brush for these applications:
- Screw clamp for attaching firmly and quickly to the spindle.
- 70mm (2.75") nylon brush with Magnet attachment. This also features 4 tabs to prevent the brush dislodging in the middle of a job. Additional brushes and longer length brushes are available in the store. Brushes are interchangeable and can be easily cut to specific lengths with scissors. Purchase a 2nd/spare brush for shorter tooling.
- Brush has slit for easy removal to perform tool changes.
- Quick Connect Hose Adapter - easily remove hose from the boot for tool changes or machine work!
- We have several colors available -- if you have a specific color preference, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate! The default boot color is black.

With the sheer number of CNCs out there and the different configurations - please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. We have made many custom boots: DIY Machines, Stepcraft, EZ Router, and Industrial CNC Machines.
Notes on some common machines:
Shapeoko - Standard boot options have been tested and proven.
X-Carve - Standard boot options have been tested and proven on stock X-Carves as well as machines with the CNC4Newbie Z-axis upgrade.
Work Bee / Lead CNC - Standard boot options have been tested and proven.
Axiom CNCs - Standard boot options have been tested and proven.
New Wave Shark CNCs - Shark HD or Shark II machines with the larger, black plastic mounts need additional clearance of approximately 1.25". Shark HD5 machines have also shown that they require an additional 1.25" of clearance as well.
