          Here are a couple of posts that may prevent all the blowing. I never have dust on my glasses or anywhere else.

          Any questions or any way I can help, let me know. Good luck
          Blowing the dust away gives me a clean line to work with

            This is an old post but a good one. This is what I use that Hegner come up with a few years ago. Blowing dust away just puts it in the air.

              I have posted these pictures of my solution to this issue. I originally built it for my Hawk G4 26 but have adapted it to also work on my EX 16.
              I used Mag switches to hold it to the saw. It is connected to a Festool MIDI vacuum that is only on when my saw is running. No dust, and the smell I get from the Baltic birch when cutting is also gone. I added a small parts trap for the bits that get sucked up accidentally. I also added the swivel joint so I could easily swing the top suction out of the way. I only had one MAG switch in this photo the hole for a second is at the back. The sawdust on the saw is from my Chop saw now relocated.

                Resurrecting an old thread!!

                if a person wanted a real strong blower, A/C powered cooling fans are available for approx $20.

                I would post a link but I’m using my phone and not sure how to get it from the amazon app😔

                a mount of some sort would need to be made, but that would not be difficult - it could actually piggy back on the magnifier light!

                  But then you are just blowing the dust somewhere else! It’s best to collect the dust at the source. Most importantly, the airborne dust that comes off the top of the table.
