DIY motorized blast gates
Woodworker Scott Walsh takes homemade blast gates, servo motors, and an Arduino microcontroller and creates a fully automated dust collection system.
I have no idea why this video from Scott Walsh doesn’t have tens of thousands of views. Maybe Scott and I are just a similar mix of woodworker meets electronics geek, but I love projects like his Arduino controlled, motorized blast gates. In particular, I loved going on the journey of building such an elaborate system with Scott—thus keeping me from wandering down this road myself.
Scott has a great YouTube channel and you should really check out his other videos. He’s also awesome and posted an in-depth tutorial on his WordPress site if you’d like to attempt something similar.
