Dust-proof any tablesaw article -FWW#205
For those of you that have received the #205 issue of FWW, June 2009 – –
I have questions concerning the article entitled ‘Dust-proof any table saw’ on page 46.
For enclosing a contractor’s saw – Is the sloped dust chute with 4″ dust port built into the saw base part of the author’s aerodynamic design, or was that simply done to accommodate the Delta saw model that the author retrofitted?
I have a Jet contractor’s table saw with a flat dust port coming out the bottom of the saw table, and wondered if I can simply come off that port with my 4″ hose, or do I need the sloped chute built into the base to facilitate dust collection and aerodynamics? (This of course would be considered once the motor box enclosure was built and installed.)
Thanks so much for your advice,
