this was inspired by lj’s member wasatch that he posted on 5/20/19.when i saw this i had to make one myself,the shroud i had just wasn’t getting enough dust due to the fence blocking the flow of dust,with this combination of fence and dust port it gets most and it actually sucks the wood against the fence.he made his horizontal but i went vertical,either way would be fine.this is hooked up to a 4” hose out the bottom.im not posting dimensions because every situation will differ and it’s very simple,just a box with the duct on the bottom.i do get a little dust over the top but only when pulled out past 10”.thanks wasatch i never would have thought of this.

Nice work pottz. I have reserved area of my shop for a chop saw section. I want to proudly display a tools from my past father, a Craftsman Radial arm saw. Not the tool from the modern wood shop but it does present itself well for certain tasks. This looks like a nice way to handle saw dust.

What a nice design. I like it whoever contributed to the process. You will have to watch and brush the back sides toward the center so accumulated sawdust doesn’t get your material out of square. I’d keep a hand held shop brush handy. I do that on my router that I use to install hinges.

Really cool idea. I’d also copy this except we had to get rid of our RAS at school for insurance reasons… Shame.

When I first started building cabinets 1978 or so my main tools were a RAS and my Shop Smith.
With a long table and fence system the RAS did all my large ply wood rips no problem, but I did get a sears table saw down the road, made set ups much faster.

Cheers, Jim
