Sweepy is our very own compact dust boot, made from clear polycarbonate.
The Sweepy Dust Boot comes in three sizes:
- 65mm for the Carbide Compact Router, Makita, and some 800W spindles
- 69mm for the Dewalt
- 80mm for users with water-cooled spindles.
Sweepy mounts directly to your spindle and is clamped with a machined quick-release. The compact design means that no travel is lost, and it works with any Shapeoko Z-axis with no adapters.

The lower half is detachable and held in place using neodymium magnets, which means that the top half remains in place while the lower half detaches for easy access when changing bits.
Both Sweepy 65 and 69 feature a 36mm (D) dust port suitable for a Festool, Fein, or similar shop vacuum and the 80mm version has a 2.25" (OD) port.
Sweepy is included with all new Shapeoko machines.
( For the legal sticklers out there, the Shapeoko and Compact Router shown in the photos are not included with Sweepy. )
