I too have the Porter Cable PCB222TS and you can help reduce the sawdust spill by doing a couple of things. First HF(yes HF) sells a sawdust bag for around $6. I didn’t use the supplied snap inserts that have to be drilled into the stand. Instead I used rare earth magnets to the back of the snaps on the bag and then placed it on the metal stand. The bag won’t hang completely straight due to the stand design but it works. I also went to a craft store and bought some adhesive backed foam sheets. These are 8-1/2×11 size very thin and only a dollar. You can peel and stick these over the openings in the saw base to seal it up more. I also traced one to fit over the slot in the front that arm for blade height adjustments travels when changing the blade tilt. I cut a slot in this one so the arm could move freely. Together both of these really cut down on dust going everywhere. My only concern would be heat build up but since I am only using my saw for short periods of time and its in my garage I don’t think it’s a problem. On a hot day at a jobstite cutting one piece after another might be different
