Today I finished the dust "management" on my contractor saw. I do not have a dust collector system so I needed some sort of management. I built a simple box drawer to catch the dust from under the saw and used hardboard to block off the back of the saw. The hardboard was cut to overlap by 2" and screwed into the back of the saw. Cutouts were made for the belt and the motor hanger. To test things out I made about 30 cuts on 3/4" MDF. The only noticeable discharge was on the table itself. Please see the pictures below for an idea how I did it.
