I've had a Rigid drum/belt sander for a year now and it does a really good job sanding. However, even with a high volume vacuum, it still does a poor job collecting dust. I tried building a cardboard enclosure and I'd cut and reshape as I went. I have had limited success. Without enclosing the whole thing, have you or anyone you know came up with a better way of dust suppression on this tool?
I have a craftsman 10 inch compound miter saw (model MODEL NO. 137.212360 SN#041300896). A few weeks back i noticed that when adjusting the angle of the blade it was becoming increasing hard to turn the blade assembly whether it be to 45 degrees right or left. today I got motivated and disassembled the (part X3RS - TABLE) from the (part X3SS - BASE). There is a (part X3SQ - SLIDE PLATE) between the two. I noticed that it looks like the saw has been 'rubbing' one side of the slide plate to the point where it has made a groove in the metal. The table now falls into this groove and is what is making it so difficult to turn. I tried lubricating it to cut down on the friction which made it slightly better but didn't solve the problem so I am asking the larger community for any suggestions. I looked up the part and while it is an inexpensive fix I would still like to know why its doing this. parts diagram attached. http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e22/flagshipone/Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png <a href="http://s36.photobucket.com/user/flagshipone/media/Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e22/flagshipone/Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png" border="0" alt=" photo Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png"/></a>
