The most recent web extras had an article on setting up a Central Dust Collection System.
Near the end of the article there is a picture of a Miter saw dust collector hood. Is there any more information of this dust hood? Are there plans available?
This forum appears to be a complete waste of time. The only posts are for pharmaceuticals. My post is the only one I've seen that is related to woodworking.
I just finished one. My saw is close to the wall, so I put my shopvac underneath and ran a hose through the tabletop, up to the rear of the saw, close to the wall. I enclosed the saw area with old, scrap melamine. I kept the housing small, but left room for turning the saw for miter cuts. The results were lousy. So, I cut up an old terrycloth towel and stapled it to the inside surfaces. This caught most of the dust. Then I took some more of the towel and cut it into 1 inch strips and hung them inside, staggared, so the dust would have a hard time getting out. Works pretty well. I am not about to run five inch pipe across my shop!
