1) The dust hood behind the Spindle Sander works well in tandem with the provided collection point. However, after loosing a few wood pieces and a brush down the 4” duct I decided to do something about it. The 1/2” hardware cloth does the trick, and the three sided frame makes it very easy – especially on the fingers- to remove and replace.

2) The dust hood behind the miter saw works very well with the arrangement shown in pictures 5 & 6.. It works even better after the 2 1/2” hose drop was replaced with a 4” hose.

Nice set up. I also, always use dust vacuum on my oscillating sander.

There ya go, improving a known dust hood. I can see that sitting behind a Lathe, Miter saw, or freestanding around hand held, routers, sanders, pretty much anything where it’s harder to contain the dust. Everything doesn’t fit on a downdraft table.

Thanks for sharing.

I definitely need something like that on my miter saw.

Have your say...
