16 X 48 x 3/4" Plywood (best if all items are cut from same sheet) 2" Screws (10) Double sided tape
Shaper Origin ¼" up-cut spiral bit 1/8" bit
The holes for the shop vac hoses are sized at 2.265". Use (+/-) offsets to get a good friction fit for your hoses. Old shaper tape was used as a spacer to allow the Gate to move. The Screw Holes were counter sunk with the 1/8" bit and then drilled using an offset. Slide the gate from side to side to align the shop-vac to the tool in use.
