« Part 5: Well It's In The Home Stretch Part 6 of Chop Saw Dust Hood series Part 7: Video Of It Suckin' Up da Dust »

Well, (drum roll please) here it is in place. If I get some time I take a video of it in action so you can see how it works, And I must say, it works pretty well.

Saw locked down showing the dust port connection and the line cord grommet.

And in the normal position.

Looks Good, is this your own design or did you find the plans somewhere.

Looks great. How about a few shots showing the back side/dust collector interface…and I ask purely in the interest of wanting to steal your idea! Nice work Curt!

I second that. I’m always looking to make my duct collection more efficient.

Thanks all.

Dave, my own design from scratch, no plans just a rough sketch so I’d cut the wood to the right length. The first time. :)

Dave and David, ok I’ll take some of the back. It’s tight and dark back there so I’ll have to use a flash (which I normally don’t) so we’ll see how it comes out.
