A Clean Machine Is A Well Performing Machine
One of the best things possible to do with your CarveWright machine is keep it clean. Dust from carving can sometimes cause a whole slew of machine errors leading to user frustration. Keeping the CarveWright free of dust will help prevent all sort of errors and keep your machine carving trouble free.

Customers who have tried other system and then purchased our DC-INSERT have reported much better dust removal and wished they had started with ours to begin with.

The DC Insert – Simply The Best CarveWright Dust Collection System
Clears Dust – Reduces the dust issues of your CarveWright machine for better machine performance!
Light Weight – Made from light gauge galvanized sheeting. All metal construction greatly reduces/eliminates all issues with static electricity compared to plastic/plexiglass and wooden units.
Perfect Fit – Does not need to be removed to install/change bits for either the CarveWright QC, CarveTight, or the
Perfect View – Clear vision of the carving area, dust free, with either a slight modification to the cover or pins to aid close the switches. Modification of the cover DOES NOT! void warranty.
Simple Installation – Easy install and removal by 2 screws attached to the mounting plate. The holes have been pre-drilled by LHR. Simply insert the unit and attach the two screws included with the DC Insert.
Easy Connection – 4″ straight dust collector connection is offset to the non keyboard side of the CW. Hook up to your dust collection system or a shop vac.
The DC Insert Has Been Approved By LHR/Carvewright As A 3rd Party Add-On
Install the insert into the CW/CC, insure the lip on the front of the insert slides over the bottom rail of the frame above the compression roller.
Pull back and lower the insert to insure it is in place.
Install and tighten the TWO 4 MM screws to hold the insert in place.
To check for proper installation, lightly lift up on the insert to make sure it does not move.
With the power off on the CW/CC move the Z-Truck back and forth and raise/lower the cutting head to insure it does not come in contact with the front of the insert.
For hooking up to your dust collections system I recommend
using the light weight aluminum dryer vent hose
NOTE: disabling or modifying any safety features on your CarveWright/CompuCarve is not endorsed by LHR Technologies, Inc.
The modification to the clear cover does not void any machine warranty.
Install the DC-Insert into the CW.
Mark a line on each side of the frame 1/16″ to 1/8″ above the top of the DC-Insert.
Remove the DC-Insert and close the door.
With a straight edge or ruler transfer the marks to the door.
The door can easily be cut to size with a dremel/rotary tool with a cut off wheel. Make sure you support the door and cover the inside of the CW. File or sand down the cut off edge of the door
to remove any burrs.
We were was also asked to look at how to NOT CUT THE CLEAR COVER and still use the insert. Some are reluctant to modify the cover so we’ve been told. Looking at how the cover tabs match up to the switches it looks like a very simple solution.
By adding a thin shim to the leading edge of the tab (long flat area that of the tab that pushes against the switch plunger) it will make the contact for the switch and hold the cover off of the insert. The plunger on the switch extends just enough out of the cover frame so that when the cover is closed the tab pushes the plunger in. The length of the tab is more than the area of the plunger so that the tab in fact rests against cover frame. The shim does not need to be very thick, what we used as a test was a small piece of 3/16″ wooden dowel to give you an idea of the thickness.
A GOOD GROUNDING SYSTEM SHOULD BE INSTALLED WITH YOUR DUST COLLECTION SYSTEM AS STANDARD PRACTICE TO INSURE STATIC ELECTRICITY DOES NOT OCCUR.
