I was going to run a vacumn over to the 12 RAS after cutting dados and got plowed with chipsbut with the purchase of another sander I think I may extend my 4” dust pipe.

Question….. Anybody have luck with the 4” reduction to 1.5 on the Delta RAS? Enough to pull dust/chips?..?.thx

Very interested as I have the same saw. I wanted to build something below the table, but I’m not sure how. I know I’d like a 4 inch pipe with a reducer so I can keep a shop vac there permanently. I hope we hear from someone with experience. I know there is A LOT of stuff on You Tube. Check out You Tube videos by Tommy Thompkins and from Frank Howarth. Both use DeWalt saws, but I think the information is still very valid.

I also have a Craftsman 10”. My dust catcher is kinda sorta similar to what pottz did but, not nearly as refined. I just built a box behind the blade with a forward facing opening about 6-8” wide and tall right behind the rear edge of the table. The DC hose then attaches to the side of the box. I then plugged up the port on the blade guard. This does a pretty decent job of catching the dust. Certainly not 100% but, most of it.

Have your say...
