I use my RAS… a lot. For the longest time I’ve had a wheelbarrow behind it where most of the sawdust lands and it is a lot of sawdust. Almost as much as my table saw. I’ve seen several LJ’ers and Youtubers with various RAS dust collection methods and decided that I like the fence port style best. Made of scraps and bit it works really well. Project Link Here

Might have to borrow some of this design concept.
Thanks for posting/sharing.
