        It would be cheapest and easiest to import some of Bob's well trained termites.

              I have a Jet dust collector and when I had my Dewalt I snaked a 4" hose between the front legs of the stand up in front of the table adjuster with the open end right under the table. It did a fairly decent job. Tied it on with zip ties.

              I am looking for a good way to pick up the top dust. I'm hoping some folks will post pix in the "See Your Saw" thread.

                I did the same as EarlinJax did with a hose up the leg underneath and tied on with zip ties but I also have a hose up above running along the arm zipped tied on to the arm. Not perfect but works pretty fair.

                  I have a hose coming up from the bottom as well as one that runs along side the arm and hovers just above where you cut. Most of the time it works great unless I have a really long board. It gets a lot of the dust, but not everything.

                    Hi all...

                    The sawdust that is made is collected and saved for the current floodings in my shed nowadays and it is very handy if you have spilt any paint...

                      You are right, your dewalt does make more sawdust then your previous saw. Quite simply, its because you are now enjoying yourself, and are cutting nonstop!!! My saws are in the basement, I let the dust pile up and sweep it up when I get hounded enough! Dale

                        I have the same system ..lol

                        I reckon that if you sweep up every time you plane anything you miss out on the wonderful mixture of colours from a range of woods ...

                              If Iam cutting hardwoods(or making pens) I actually try to save alot of the dust for use later.

                              You can make some pretty neat effects by stack cutting 2 contrasting woods and using a some of your saved dust mixed with epoxy/glue,flip the pieces and fill the gaps and sand smooth when you are done.

                              I have also thought about trying the same thing with fretwork....put a on a backer and fill up the frets with a dust/glue mixture of a contrasting shade.
                              And sand it flush to the surface. .....Might make it look like inlay.

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                                Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
