    Thanks for the pic. Is that laminate covered plywood? The white tube end I see below the venting, is that an extension on the muffler?

    Yes. I finished that one up today and am getting it under it's intended machine. Vents to help the motors cool, but not open to where someone can touch the wires. Opposing motors to give room for the mufflers each way and keep the box small. The plywood has an abs on one side. It came from a friend of mine that makes cases for music and oilfield equipment.

    Looks great. Do you know how much vacuum it pulls? How large of a table are you using?

    I have never measured how much vac it pulls. Two of them have worked cabinet building on a 4x8 machine for years. If you cut very small parts, you may need to go with 4 motors, or apply both of these to a 4x4 section and do it that way.

    Okay, I should be fine. I only have a 4x4 table.
