    Default Dust cover for a milling machine?

    Does anyone have a lead on a full cover for a Bridgeport style mill? I'm wanting to cut down on the dust when it' not in use, but so far all I find is way covers not a full head cover.
    Just looking for something less tacky than a tarp.
    Thanks in advance.

    I made mine from heavy duty polythene sheet and a heat sealer (the type used for sealing poly bags). Left a split in the back so it would pull down over the ram.

    I use 2 canvas painters tarps. Both from home depot, I forget the size. 1 over the table, 1 over the head. Being this is in a shared area of my wood shop, I can say it has worked well for 8 years now.

    I have one large canvas painters tarp over my 14x40 lathe and it is a pita compared to the 2 cover method on the mill.
