  • 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.

          I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
