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.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
