Flattening Wasteboard > Dust collection arm hitting front rail

I just recently tried to flatten my wasteboard again and noticed with the dust collection installed, it collides with the front rail mounting feet.

Is this unique to my setup or can you not use the suck it dust boot arms on the entire usable area of the machine?

I’m using the Woodworker X-50.

Here is a picture of my setup if that’s helpful.

This happened to me too when I had a thinner wasteboard and the arms were down low. Now I have a thicker wasteboard so it doesn’t happen anymore as the arms are high enough to miss the rail feet.


Thanks @SkyKam - I started with 3/4" MDF, it’s probably closer to 1/2" now. Maybe I’ll put another layer on top and flatten that.
