  • Dust removal @ the blade

    WD, I saw the photo you posted in the thread " movin the compound cut pattern?"
    Is that a vacuum hooked to your saw? It looks like the end of a hose at the blade.
    I'd like to see how you hooked that up if that is what I am seeing.

    Stephen, I don't know if you saw my posts on the dust collector I use but maybe you can use them.

      Stephen my set up at the blade is hooked to a shop dust collector, not a vac. No reason a vac wouldn't work with the right attachments. It's about 20 feet away from the saw, I use to have a chain holding up the hose, but I bought this flex hose and I like it better. I have it hooked to a hook on the ceiling, then connected to the tube going to the collector. The other smaller hose you see is for the bottom of my saw. Any set up is better than nothing. I like that flex hose because I can adjust, and twist it any which way to accommodate the thickness of my project.
      As an aside.......my mom use to say "Cripes" all the time, just like you.

        Thanks both of you. Really neat the way it is hung from the ceiling. I could do that I think.
