Added overhead dust collection for table saw but still threw dust using miter so I added a deflector to my miter with a slight wedge to deflect dust up into the collector. Super simple, I just drilled a couple holes that fit snugly over bolt heads on miter. Works great, no more dust on my shirt, or in the shop.

Interesting. I just picked up a PSI overhead rig at an auction. I was going to re arrange it for my Shark Guard and use the rig to hold the tubing. I’ll have to remember this for when I get it operational.
