Ok, as you can tell, I am in the process of totally “pimping” out my Delta 14” bandsaw lately. So, the next step is dust collection.
My bandsaw is the worst dust maker in the shop. It leaves the air and my lungs full of fine maple powder. All I can do is wear a respirator and wait for a while until it comes out of the air and gives all the surfaces in my shop a nice coating.
So, has anybody seen articles on, or actually tried adding dust collection to a classic style bandsaw?
Where would you recomend sucking the dust from?
- Multiple locations on the saw?
- Below the table?
- Near the “wheel brush”?
- Above the table?
I’m working with limited suction because for now my dust collection is a shop vac (2 1/2”).

Photos would be awesome if you can find any or take any.
