Thanks all. And my RAS needs one too, that will be coming. But first, maybe some real woodworking.

Soon. Real soon. And you will be able to see it in action without traveling to the cold snowy Midwest.

Hi Blackman,

Thanks a million for sharing this health saving solution.

I’d like to duplicate your Chop Saw Dust Hood exactly.
Is there any chance I can get the exact dimensions?

I already have the 28.5” wide x 19” Tall.

But, more specifically, the plenum chamber dimensions?
Which I think is the key to the entire project.

I also already have:

1/2” high opening

4” duct

inside the plenum 2/3 down from the top is a divider board that splits the box into two chambers

The divider board has three holes in it, a 2-1/4” hole in the middle and two 2-3/8” holes one at each end

Many thanks and all my best, Barry G. Sumpter

Have your say...
