Yeah... I'll miss that poor dust shoe. Actually, not really. TBH it kinda sucked (pun intended ) as it would sag super hard under the weight of the vaccum hose, lifting the backside and letting chips stream out. The bristles kept working their way out of the slots, too. I'll have to get creative with workholding on the other side of this part for sure, but I have some ideas ...Dang, I'll have to tell him how lucky he is then. I'm just gonna mount the pump normally and hope for the best. Well, unless the noise is unbearable or something!
