      Needed to do the same thing because of all the dust the MDF was kicking up at me. I have the luxury of having a small 3D printer, so I just
      designed some parts to collect the blade dust the lower vac port didn't. I wound up making the scoop for the table, the articulated arm connecting it to the scroll saw arm, the adapter to the clear section of tubing I had just laying around from some other project and the adapter to the 3" hose coming from the blast gate to the shop vac system on the 3D printer. It works great. The adjustable arm lest me raise / lower the vac scoop for different thicknesses.vac port on scrollsaw 1.jpg

          I use the one he shows for Hegner and really like it. You can't see, but underneath the table is an adjustable shoot, for lack of a better word, that allows the dust from the top to be suctioned off and into the vacuum. I extended the bottom piece from hegner with a piece of 1" pvc sliced in half and attached it to the piece from Hegner. I've been using it since they came out with the design. I will take a picture tomorrow when I am back downstairs and post it and it will make more sense. I have a flexible hose and when it clogs from paper or a piece of wood, I just bend the hose straight, tap it or bang it if I'm irritated, and the clog falls out. If that doesn't work, I take the other end of the hose and hook it back up to the baffle and it blows the dust out. There is no dust blowing into my face or on my clothes.

            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

            The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

            I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
