Cut More, Clean Less
💨 BIG CFM BOOST
The Dust Boot has a standard 5-inch intake port. Theoretically, this allows 545 CFM which improves from the 3.4-inch internal port on the stock dust boot port (~288 CFM).
EASY NO-MODIFICATION SWAP
No need to modify your ShopSabre Router.* You can swap out your existing dust boot with ours in a couple of minutes.
Two-minutes and a Phillips Screwdriver
*If you have a center-mounted tool touch probe on the ShopSabre ATC Rack, it will need to be moved to the left side. Here's our guide. It’s easy, no sweat!
Stop docking and use our Our Dust Boot with our ATC Pedestals to tool change or touch off tools. This means you save about 20 seconds per tool change over a docking system per tool change.
At 20 sheets a day with 3 tool changes each, you’d save 20 minutes per day in docking time alone. That’s 2-3 more sheets cut in that docking time! Thats 500-800 more sheets a year 🙊

- Made by PDX CNC in Portland, Oregon
- Compatible with PDX CNC ATC Pedestal upgrades - significant improvements in dust collection and added tool capacity.
👉 Have a ShopSabre with original ATC rack?
For ShopSabre PRO or IS machines we only recommend using our ATC Pedestals.
- Both the older blue solid bar ShopSabre rack & newer version that looks like our ATC Pedestals will deform the lower brush and cause shortened life. The latter position spacing is too narrow.
- The lower brush plate is swappable.
How much will this help?
Your potential performance increase*
- Standard 100mm HSD Mount with 5-inch Port Choose from 3-inch or our custom 3.4-inch brush plate. Or get both.
- 5-to-4 Reducer Kit - for those who max out at 4-inch ducting
*Note this will have reduced performance as our Dust Boot is designed for a 5-inch duct.
- 5" to 4" Duct Reducer Fitting
- 5" Duct Clamps (2)
- 5" Flex Duct connector piece *We estimate about 22% improvement in CFM with our 4" Kit versus the stock boot whereas our 5-inch Port is ~89% improvement.
- Upcoming: Laguna SmartShop II and M, other mounting diameters than 100mm
- Upcoming: Other Lower Brush options like optimized for PDXCNC ATC Pedestals or Shorter Brush length.
- Dust Boot with 5-inch Port
- Magnetic Brush Plate
- Better Dust Collection 😉
See the Compatibility List Our Dust Boot works with HSD spindles like those that ShopSabre machines uses. The mounting point of the Boot fits around the "spindle nose” just above the gage line. We know it works with:
- HSD ES915 5HP - 100mm
- HSD ES919 10HP - 100mm
- Colombo - 85mm
- Hiteco 4HP - 75mm
- HSD 2.4HP - 75mm
Yes, on many machines this is no problem.
If you have a stock ShopSabre PRO or IS machine with an HSD spindle, we recommend using our ATC Pedestals. Both the older blue solid bar ShopSabre rack and the newer version that looks like our ATC Pedestals will deform the lower brush and cause shortened life. The lower brush plate is replaceable.
It will not work with the ShopSabre Dust Dock – we recommend disabling that in WinCNC.
Multicam AU rotatary and most linear ATC rack with HSD spindles work fantastic with our Dust Boot.
There's also been AXYZ machines that use our Dust Boot as well.
Yes, of course. You’ll never clean out a compression cut fully - well maybe if you had the best dust collector ever made. With any Dust Boot, if the brush isn’t touching the work surface you’ll lose a drastic amount of suction and you’ll have chips spray out.
The key is to optimize your tool length (choke up) and Dust Boot capability like an optimal brush length for the job. We do plan to offer different options for spacers and brush lengths for our Dust Boot - this is not yet available.
We designed our Dust Boot to provide the most airflow CFM as close to the spindle while having as long a brush that makes sense. It’s not perfect, but it’s an improvement.
