     Hello 1,2,3 week not much update and look like my routine work will busy for a couple month but i’m try to finish my personal work too. OK before i mill something like wood ,soft plastic , acrylic , MDF (this is a big problem when i want to work with this because it make a lot of dust and Yeah!!! my machine in my bedroom too) so i need to do something to collect dust , after research i found this “DIY Cyclone Dust Collector” that it good guide and it awesome but if i do that it will need some tool that i don’t have it so let’s think how to make it easy and cheap ?.
     After no time to design i decide to go to home store to find something to make that and yeah i got it.
