Does anyone here attach a dust shoe/boot/skirt to their plasma to knock down the slag / sparks? Of so what type of material would be appropriate for this skirt?

I was watching one of the crazy Colin Furze videos on youtube and happened to notice his cnc plasma had a slag skirt, I don't think I've ever noticed one a plasma before. Skip to 4:28


Thoughts?

That dude is a crazy SOB! Cbear introduced me to these Silicone Funnel , you cut to fit around your torch, they seem to work well and since it's silicone don't burn up immediately. I moved from an Everlast to a Hypertherm and havent cut a new one yet, but it worked pretty good on the Everlast.

I have used once that type of steel he is using in the video, it does not bend or move or warp at all!
Everything else will do so, so the shoe would interfere a lot.

How about a piece of fire blanket?

I've used a collapsible silicon cooking funnel that I bought off of amazon for years. They sell them in 2 and 4 packs. They work great! I know several people that now use them, all with good success. They can burn through if you're cutting material that's at the top of your plasma cutters cut capacity because of the extended periods of block back before a pierce, but they work great otherwise. I usually get 7-9 months of normal cutting out of them.

If y'all wouldn't mind could @CBEAR or @snowgoer540 post a picture of how you've rigged your silicon funnel?

I do not mind at all, I'll grab a pic when I get home tonight. Truthfully it's been off lately, but I'll slap er on there and snap a pic.

Crap, I'm sorry. I got home to an air conditioner-emergency (clogged condensation port caused leaking into the wall down the inside of the wall, and out the steel I-Beam that spans the garage) and a few hours later when that was sorted out, I totally forgot about snapping a picture. I stuck a post-it note on my wallet as a reminder - I won't forget tonight. :blush:
