Thanks Dan and Graham,
I like the idea of the brush for a curtain Still provides access to
the collet for easy tool changes; the bristles would probably help
loosen some of the compacted dust that forms behind the tool when I'm
machining FR4 PCB material as well.
I would be happy to see any photo's you may have.
