Description

I teach electronics at a highschool level  - in our workshop we have 2 Proxxon tmb 220 mini drill presses, which are excellent for drilling PCBs but the dust gets all over the place.
So I designed this solution that splits a vacum hose into two 3/4 " garden hoses which is held in place right where the dust is generated.
Printed with 100% infill to make sure it lasts in a workshop environment with students. The hose guide rings needs some support.
Designed in tinkercad - all files are here: https://www.tinkercad.com/users/ev4MMzGq1Oz-mn-t

Materials and methods

- 3/4" garden hose
- an assortment of 3mm screws, washers and nuts.
