I have a job site table saw that is built into a DIY table saw/router table bench thingy. The main dust collection under the saw is good using a 4” hose. But, I throw sawdust everywhere from the top of the table, especially when cutting very thin cuts. For example, lets say my workpiece is a little too wide and I remove a kerf’s width (no cutoff piece left over, just saw dust). That dust sprays everywhere and mostly right on me.

I don’t use a guard because I use Grr-rippers.

I have heard of people using floor sweep attachments but I’m not sure where I would attach it.

Do you have any suggestions?

How about an articulating arm attached to the ceiling above that holds the suction hose? You could position it however you’d like for either the saw or router.

Have your say...
