I bought a Skilsaw Southpaw Sidewinder Circular Saw, SPT67M8-01. The saw does not have a dust port and I would like to be able to use it indoors during the winter months. It’s a great saw but throws quite a bit of dust. Any ideas on dust collection? Thank You.

A quick google search shows some add ons for worm drive saws. Didn’t see much for standard side position motors. If you have kids they are great at holding the shop vac hose!

Thank You for your reply. We don’t have kids and I’d hire a helper before I’d ask my wife to help. When she says that WE need to do this or that around the house…..the WE means ME. I tell her that the only ones who should use the term ‘WE’ are the queen and somebody that has a tapeworm.

Their SKILSAW SPT67FMD-01 15 Amp 7-1/4 In. Sidewinder Circular Saw for Fiber Cement has what looks to be great dust collection. I would say you are out of luck for your model.

I can’t help, but if the queen had a tapeworm she’d always be on the dunny (we-we)!

You’re not going to collect any kind circular saw very well unless is has a shroud, like a track saw.

I have a Porter Cable with a port that accepts a bag, which I’ve attached a vacuum hose to and it didn’t do much.

Bottom line if you want dc on a circ saw you’ll need to get a track saw, and you need a good dust extractor, too.

I would say that my track saw has 95% dust collection or better, but I can certainly see the need for a circular saw in many instances as well so one really can’t replace the other. That’s a nice saw.

Thank You. I watched their video and I would have to make a hole in the blade guard of my saw. I’m wondering if it would be worth doing.

Have your say...
