  • clean 788 in new location

    Modification s proved very satisfactory ,moved location of catch tray as shown ,tilt now back it full range capable .Now ,able to use in house , w/o dust . With heat in winter and ac in summer will get a lot more use and enjoyment ,Quiet as a mouse , vac.on covered porch. All dirty work sanding etc.,will still go to shop . This is the single best project I've done in years as far as results ,cured the mess's eliminated the masks ,dusty glasses and lites ,not to mention the breathing ,and nose blowing problems . any questions just let me know ,as I mentioned before really not hard to do and not expensive .

    My very Best!
    Carl
    P.S. I thing the biggest advantage is I can do a little in between what ever w/o
    having to plan special time in the shop,as much or as little as that day allows.

    I think I would get a pretty strong NO if I tried to bring my saw in the house.

      Great job, Carl - that looks like it took a lot of thinking to wind up with all the benefits you now have - that's terrific! Do enjoy your wonderful working environment! Wow, heat and AC while you're working - NICE!

        Proving to a sceptical wife.

        Keith ,I took her to the quiet shop ,showed her just how quiet and clean it was now.
        Those issues went away ,she can't tell I'm using it in the next room ,your right about resistance ,thankfully ,I was able to prove ,to her satisfaction ,all of my claims were true ,and had other benefits like instant access ,w/o trip to shop.or cell phone calls. these interuptions are not the frustration of having to not only stop ,but reset everything in the shop so you can leave ,heat lites,air ,blowers etc.that they were before. Now were both happy campers,
        PateM ,your so right ,especially in the winter ,not suffering or waiting for the shop to heat up,in,the morn. or having to suffer ,or quit in the heat of summer, WIN WIN !

        My very best!

            Sweeeet stuff Carl, that took some planning, but all I can think of when I see that yellow catch all is a baby's high chair... Now you can make the Mrs a special project for Valentines Day.

              It looks good Carl and it appears to capture most dust (or all) from the table top. What about the airborne dust, however?

                  Tyman .I can not trump restricted air space at you house !
                  Karl ,blower deactivated,very minimal surface accumulation ,vac gets 90%,but w/o blower just sits there ,vac continues to get with movement of work piece any left that starts to accumulate ,I shut off saw switch leave ft.sw.on reach over left unplug hose from manifold 2seconds later all gone .multi hole pcs, completely self clean.
                  Wood dog. arrangement serves same purpose ,as well upper portion keeps small tools ,hole finder ,sq.,mini vice grips,etc. real handy.
                  WJB ,You have the pattern ,and the scroll saw to make your manifold.
                  Any other questions welcome,try the mangnetized set screw you will love it!

                  P.S. I am working on converting existing blower into the vac . system will let you know if I succeed ,that would be the cats meow! One step at a time tried two at once ,fell on my face!

                    I guess I missed an earlier post/thread. What is that yellow try - is it from a baby/child's high chair? Where is the vaccuum hose going - do you have it under the table sucking near the blade?
                    I did that last night for the first time using blue masking tape (temporary/trial run) to hold the hose and it worked very well (using an old canister vac which is not very loud). The hose you used looks like what crossed my mind - very light weight sump pump hose, to minimize the weight on the saw (and easier to attach than my vac's heavy hose - it's old, back when they made things thicker!).
                    I'm tempted to split the hose via a Y-adapter and (somehow) place the second hose near the right-top side of the table - to catch dust that the blower throws in that direction.
