Dust Boot for CNC Shark
Flexible dust brushes conform to the surface being routed. Features 2-1/4" diameter hole for dust extraction. 2-1/2" Swivel Fitting (#31660, sold separately) aids in keeping the dust hose from kinking as the router moves about. Features one end that is 2-1/4" O.D. that fits into the dust boot and the other end, 2-1/2" O.D., fits our clear dust hose (#22784, sold separately).

My main concern with dust was the very fine dust that will become airborne during operation. My 3 year old son likes to hang out in the shop with me, and it was not possible with the CNC running until I bought this. I no longer have dust covering every flat surface, and no longer see anything airborne.
The time this saves on cleanup makes it a no-brainer. I’d rather spend my time designing and cutting, not jockeying a shop vac.
It’s not cheap, but what is your time worth? And your health. If you’re straddling the fence, pull the trigger.

also I had to use a screw to keep the hose in the brush there may be an adaptor that I'm not aware of

1. This is the tech support suggestion: Is the bit you are using seated as far as it can go in the collect? If not set it deeper which will in turn lower the dust boot closer to the work.
2. If you need a spacer why not make your own spacer out of wood and some rare earth magnet and put it between the two plates of the dust boot, or between the dust boot and the base of the router. Make sure you set the rare earth magnets in the space so you can stack the dust boot (North - South poles)
3. Make a spacer to raise your router up off the mounting housing which in turn raises the bit up off the work surface and will lower the bust boot.
