The shark HD was delivered yesterday, very excited to use it, Just a couple questions is there a front or a back to the table ie does it matter which way the router faces, and there are 5 holes on each side of the gantry to attach to the table but there are only 3 holes to attach it to, by looking at the pictures on the website it looks like you attach it to the arms using the bottom three screw holes, after getting it together the way i thought it should go, i worked up a test project and had it running in no time, only one problem the router ran through the motions but i could never get it to come in contact with my piece of wood, obviously im doing somethine wrong. Sorry so many question and i hope this is the proper place to ask if not ill ask them in another forum (still very new at this) Thanks AJ.

Finally !!!!!!!!! After years of development the manufacturer has developed two brush type dust collection attachments specifically designed for the Shark systems.
Rockler #43651 is designed for Shark, Shark Pro and Shark ProPlus.
Rockler #43650 is designed for the HD system.
Look for the complete details soon at http://www.rockler.com.
Also the recently updated manual for the Shark systems has also been placed on the Rockler offers for the systems.

Morning Al

Can you post a direct link to the dust shoes. I've been all over the Rockler site and can't find any reference to it.

Thanks, Michael

Yes we do have some in stock (Next Wave) and Rockler will have them in stock soon (couple of weeks at most).
These are a slight variation on a different version that we sold that had a slide lock
this one has magnets for mounting instead slide lock with pin.
We have a HD and a shark/pro/plus version.
Make sure you purchase the correct one. The skus will be 43650 and 43651 at Rockler.
They have a 2.25" mounting hole that connects with most vac systems.
Thanks

Tim

I only saw the HD shoe available at the Nextwave store. Is the standard shark shoe also available?

Thanks, M
