No Dust Extraction With Zero-Clnc Insert
My Jet 10″ hybrid table saw has a closed cabinet with a dust extraction port, but the cabinet isn’t really airtight. It has gaps in the corners, around the legs, and even a louvered vent on one side. So when I use a zero-clearance insert a lot of dust doesn’t get drawn into the extraction system because there are so many bigger openings for the air to go into.
The teeth carry some of the dust down below, but a lot of fine dust seems to kick back towards me and into the air.
So is it worth my time to try and close up those openings with good ole duct tape, or is that slit just too small to get a decent suction? Has anyone else experienced this?
