I have an early Hitachi slider. It came with a dust bag attachment. I made an adapter to mate the bag attachment port to a dust collector port.

It is not 100% but it does get most of the stuff- when I remember to turn on the main collector.

Made a shroud.  The scoop in the back of the tool platform is served by a 4" DC hose.  MS is one of the most difficult dust capture challenges because of the particulate velocities, but this is about 85% effective.  Works.

I like that, Pete. While a totally dust free workshop is a worthy goal, I think it's a myth.:lol:

In practical, DIY, terms, I agree that 100% is not worth the doing.  However, I have done 100%* systems, and if I could be paid now what I charged then, I'd be happy to help!!!

 

*HIV lab for example, but also radiological and chemical.  Lots of nasty things out there that make wood dust (and asbestos!!)  look pretty benign.

I do 100% on my chop saw. It is under the bench never used. I use the RA saw and have it contained 90+% . It plunges out of a  enclosed wooden box with a 6" DC hose hooked to it. the blade runs in a ZC slot with a dado under it that feeds back to the box. nothing comes out of the exhaust fitting on the bladeguard. I will post a thread on how i did it.
