Rating:
50% of 100

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).


Will this dust boot work with my machine?

Dust Boot is compatible with the following machine:


  • CNC Shark Routing System (#49200, sold separately)

Great addition to the Shark HD. I would order it again in a heartbeat after using it.
This dust boot is a “must have” in my opinion. As of November 2017, Next Wave changed their bristles to a softer material. The brush, if set down on its bristles will pretty much collapse onto itself. This is perfect for deeper cuts. I had to raise my router a little from the arbitrary position it was in, and set my longer bits deeper and my shorter bits a little more shallow, however, any extra effort during setup is very well worth the time. Using my dust collector, this picked up 99.9 percent of the dust. Literally! The only thing left behind was a few larger chips that were made during material removal with a 0.25” end mill. I’ve only had the opportunity to use it while making a couple signs out of 0.75” stock. I haven’t had a chance to use it on thicker material yet, but in my opinion, whatever the dust collector picks up is better than it ending up all over my shop.

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.

Replacement brushes to replace too short brushes
I ran into the problem of the brushes on the boot not being long enough. I found that McMaster-Carr manufacturers brushes that fit the boot perfectly. They are called Tight Seal Strip Brushes. You would need to order 3/16" Wd. × 7/32" Ht. Steel Backing. You can order them in brush lengths up to 6", and in lengths up to 8ft long. Simple to cut to length with a pair of snips. For brush height, since they come in lengths up to 6" but not in a 5" length, I needed 5" brushes and simply used scissors to cut the 6" brush to a 5" brush length. Unscrew the old ones from the boot, replace with pieces cut to fit and replace the screws in the boot.

My CNC Shark Pro had a bolt head at the back that I had to drill an indent at the top piece to fit. After that it went on fine and works real good. Keeps everything clean.

review of the magnetic dust brush
The boot does the job but there are 2 problems, one the magnet isn't strong enough, I had to use screws to keep it on. I don't really like not being able to see the bit and what it's doing.
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

I purchased this in hopes to keep the chips from flying. After installing it, I found that the bristles didn't seem to come down far enough to help create the suction area that was needed to stop the woodchips. I thought maybe I had placed my router too far down in that carrier, but even when I raised it to its highest point, I still did not have adequate coverage. I guess I could push my standard size bit all the way up into the router, but then I would lose the ability to carve the 1/4 in depth that I was looking for as the collet would hit the sides.

Garbage product.
Zero stars if I could. Better off burning the $100 I spent on this. Does not work actually gets in the way. Shameful Newwave would take their customers for such a sub par product. Need to rethink their strategy if they want to have and keep loyal customers.

When I was at the Rockler Store I bought the dust shoe. I told them i have an 80 mm dia motor. It did not fit. Then the vacum line hole was in the wrong location. also, the magnets are very weak. not happy !

Everything was wrong.
No longer bolts were included in the package, so I couldn't install it holding my production by 4 days. when the bolts did arrive it turned out that the dust boot was the wrong one, neither the bolt pattern or the opening for the spindle were correct. Production held up once again. When one spends $6,000 on a machine they expect to be able to put it to work and not be held up on quality control issues.

not impressed
Took 3-4 weeks for delivery. Did not fit my machine like they claimed so I had to drill new holes. But at least they billed me twice the price (including shipping and handling, etc). Lesson learned...should have used my machine to make the parts and save $150.

are there spacers available to accommodate different lengths of bits ? My boot rides about 2 inches too high off of the table using a standard 60 degree v-bit....
Mark H on Aug 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a couple of suggestions:

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.
Does this work with CNC Piranha?
