I’m part way through building a new work bench which I’ve made an attachment to on the end, to sit my dewalt table saw on, so that it out feeds onto the table at the same height. All sounded great on paper and went together without a hitch only now I’ve realised the dust port is going to shower the lower shelf in dust.

I wondered if anybody has put a sweeping 90 degree elbow on the dust port without the aid of extraction. Does it foul up or does the saw move enough air to keep it clear? I’m thinking a PVC swept elbow pointing into a crate of some sort below the attachment would be pretty good.

I have done something like that with my Dewalt DW745. I bought a short flexible hose from Woodcraft, and I have it feeding into a plastic bucket. It’s not ideal, but it definitely helps.

Does it ever block up by itself? It doesn’t take much of a lump to fall down there to block my one, it could do with an extractor anyway. I’m toying with the idea of a seperate one for the bench now.

Have your say...
