Homemade Blast gates

Looking for plans. Something that allows full air flow and has a stop so the blade doesn't fall out.

Wood or metal?

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

I used the ones in the "My dust collector setup" thread.
My dust collector setup

Once I saw the pics in post 46 it was very easy to make. Hardest part was waiting for the glue to dry.

Insert witty signature line here.

Thanks Joe that's what I had in mind. Only thing I might do different is notch out a slot for the stop pin, so the gate can open fully.

There's no stop, but this one looks pretty simple.
