you find you like having the sides? I have been toying with open vs closed sides for a while.


I put them there to keep dust off the slides with plans for sheet metal outer covers with bellows to close the slides in. Turns out with the water cooled spindle there is no air blowing the dust around  so the collector gets almost all of it. I just spray the slides and screws with garage door screw dry lube and haven't seen dust build up so I don't  think they are really required if you use dust collection. I also figured  they would slow down things like flying knot parts that come loose.

my plan for mine is going to be a interchangeable heads for router, plasma cutter, and anything else I feel like playing with :). so I will get into all sorts of other issues. The side shields probably will make sense to keep the linear bearings from getting slag on them.

Thanks for the insight.

I put them on my plasma table and they don't help. It's in a 30 x 40 x12 ft tall shop and everything in there is covered with the fine black abrasive powder it creates.  A water table is the best way to catch  that but then you have to deal with hazardous waste. I used THK slides with  double seals that still work good with  constant greasing and wiping so don't  skimp on your slides because  that dust is very abrasive and really makes a mess. Slag is no problem because it's  heavy enough that the air can't blow it around and it all exits the bottom of the cut.

I was hoping for a downdraft table. Direct vent outside.

So are you happy with the 2.2kw or would you go bigger? be awesome to be able to run a 3-6" surfacing bit for doing the large slabs.

I would not go bigger for a toy to play with in my shop. 2.2kw is about 3 hp and anything larger would require a more rigid machine plus cutters like that are in the $500 range and meant for production use. Also input power requirements to run it goes up considerably. I have more time then money so speed to surface an occasional slab doesn't mater to me.  If you build a big machine size the spindle and speeds for chip loads given by the cutter manufacturer.
I built a downdraft table on my plasma cutter but did not put the pipe through the wall to be able to use it after researching the consequences of blowing a cancer causing substance outdoors and homeowners insurance regulations. There are some affordable weld fume suckers I may look into someday.
