The X-Carve Dust Control System collects debris as X-Carve carves your workpiece. It features a dust shoe that attaches to the X-axis carriage. A grounded hose connects to the dust shoe and routes the work dust into your vacuum or dust collector (vacuum not included). This is not available for X-Carves using Bosch spindles.
• Removable dust shoe with carriage mount
• Grounded hose with a universal fitting for shop vacuums
• Pole to secure the hose
The Dust Control System is included in the Fully Loaded X-Carve package.

Ideally, you want a system with a 2.25” tapered fitting. This is standard on most vacuums, including Shopvac & Fein. You can reference this drawing of the hose to make sure it works with your system.
We have tested the smallest Shopvac with good success, but it is nice to have a bigger one because you will fill a small one quickly.
We don’t have a specific brand that we recommend, but most people prefer quieter vacuums. The Shopvac brand is pretty quiet and the Fein is very quiet (as far as vacuums go).
The system is designed for easy disconnection, so you may want to consider other shop vacuum needs you may have in your workspace. You can disconnect the vacuum from the system to use it elsewhere.
No. We recommend upgrading your ShapeOko 2 with the core X-Carve 2015 components. At the very least, you will need to configure your machine with a modern extruded X-Carriage extrusion.
Yes, but unfortunately, we do not sell extra hose lengths in the Inventables store. Most home centers (Home Depot, Ace, Lowe’s, etc.) will sell hoses that are the same size as what you’ll find in the kit. However, we do not have any documentation about joining hoses together.
We were generous with the hose length in your kit. Even for the 1000mm machine, there is enough extra hose for you to adequately maneuver the system.
