One of the more common questions of late has been about my methods of dust collection on the table saw. I have a contractor style table saw, which has the open back and motor hanging out the back. To combat the dust collection I modified 3 things on the table saw and as a forth option I am careful about my blade selection.
- Insulation around the top of the cabinet between the box and the table.
- Closed in the back as much as possible, being careful to leave room for the motor and belt.
- Added a dust chute with a port for active dust collection
- Pay attention to the blade style.
For a longer explanation and to see what I am talking about take a look at the video on our YouTube Channel.
