Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw

As I was surfing around I came across a bit of an oddity. It seems from the early 70’s thru I don’t know when Craftsman sold a dust collector that attached to the 113 series table saw. Looks like it runs off the saw motor somehow (I’m guessing the belt). Anyone ever seen one of these? How well did it work? Was it a drag on the motor? One the one hand it seems like a clever idea. OTOH, it seems like so many of Craftsman’s clever ideas that work far better on paper than in practice.

I know this is an old post, but i just stumbled across the same thing, did you ever find out any info about it? I can’t quite make out the part number in that photo but there’s a saw for sale in my area with that attached to it for $50, tempting.

For $50, who cares. You can always resell the saw for at least that much. The odds of it working well are probably low given what its being asked to do – scavenge dust from both the blade guard and the motor housing.

-- there's a solution to every problem.......you just have to be willing to find it.

I never did find one, but it’s interesting that you did. For that price I’d say go for it as well. Like toolie said, you can always resell the saw for that much. Even if the dust collector isn’t efficient it’d be interesting to tinker with.

I was looking for something like that about a year ago, couldn’t find a good dust collector for my needs in the market so I just gave up =/
