    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.

    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.

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

    Blowing the dust away gives me a clean line to work with

    Chuck, when I click on the posts you have included, I am sent right back to this post...did I do something wrong. I also use Hegners and the bellows does not work that well and using the fan and filter still leaves a ton of dust..would like to see what up use.

    Fish tank air pumps can be easily repaired if they stop working. Just take it to a pet shop and they will have the little rubber bellows for cheap.

    Just as added information, if you decided to construct one of these dust collectors I would advise that you be sure and use a medium to large cooling fan, even if you have to put the input pipe on the side of the container. This way, you will have enough suction to be sure and pull any sawdust into the bucket. You can get these fans real cheap at a local computer repair shop. Some will run on 12 volts dc and some will run on 120 VAC. I have my foot switch, sawdust collector, light and fish tank air pump all plugged into a power strip mounted on the side of the table the saw is on. This way, I only have to turn on one switch to power up everything.

    I use this system for the bottom of the plate only. I connect it to the port under the table. I use the original dust blower on top except I employ a fish tank air pump vice the bellows.

    Can you show a picture of how you are capturing the dust at the saw blade ? Your setup looks very interesting. I may give it a try.
