I finally got around to finishing dust collection for my track saw, router table, hand sanders, drill press, bandsaw. Lots of heat gun activity on a hair too small or too big PVC fittings. The bandsaw..hmm. I’ve seen many dust collection applications but I wanted something simple. I followed suit from my miter saw dust collection of simply using a cut up 6” wire flex hose with bungee cords. Ran some tests and no debris in the lower wheel cavity.
Lots of dust collection ports under my two table saws for downdraft table, PM66, Unisaw, and Benchdog router. Again, I went stupid simple and used a 5 gallon bucket with 4” port snug fit under the router table using bungee cords. It works but it isn’t pretty :) One day, I may come back and do something but for now, it works :)
