Meet, The Claw
Pick a SideWe recommend aligning your ducting fully on one side of the machine or the other (X negative or positive). Basically, you don’t want to have the duct crossover the center of the spindle as it traverses.
The Duct Tower includes all hardware needed for install on a ShopSabre CNC Router. Simply attach to either side of the spindle on the aluminum z-stiffener.
It takes less than 5-minutes to install. See our Guide on setting up your Ducting for no-tangle success!
Works with Most ShopSabre's
Check to make sure your machine has an open truss on the side you want to mount the Duct Tower to. If you have a solid aluminum z-stiffener, you can still mount the Duct Tower with some simple hole drilling. See this guide.
The Duct Tower keeps a 4-6 inch dust collection duct out of the way of ShopSabre Z-balancers and everything else it likes to get caught on.
The claw has multiple adjustable angles.

Our design utilizes open-truss spindle Z-stiffeners on each side of ShopSabre routers. You can most likely mount it to other machines as well.
Our Duct Tower keeps the duct out of the way of the Z-balancer and everything else it likes to get caught on.
The Duct Tower is solid laser cut and powder-coated steel.
The Duct Tower was designed with hardware to fit the open "truss-style" Z-stiffener on ShopSabre CNC Routers. You can adapt our trusses with your own hardware or possibly simply drilling holes through a solid z-stiffener as shown in our guide.
Don't have a ShopSabre?
You can definitely still use the Duct Tower. Here's the mounting pattern.
