« Part 4: Cabinets and drawer boxes Part 5 of Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) series Part 6: Electric power »

A few months ago I bought a hybrid saw so I could remove the legs to mount it on my mobile workbench. I built a box to support the saw and house a chute to channel the dust to the exhaust port. My original intention was to slope the front panel all the way back to the outlet so the chute that came with the saw wouldn’t work. During construction, I ended up with a square chute to get steeper angles and extended the suction pipe into it. I realized later that I could have saved some effort and used the saw’s dust chute.

The suction pipe is angled to fit the chute:

A simple clamp holds the suction pipe in place:

The back is removeable in case I ever need to modify it:

2” PVC connects the suction pipe to the blast gate in the bottom of the exhaust air manifold:

I cut out the front to make a small area for storing push sticks and guides:

Next will be electrical wiring.
