I have been having a very hard time trying to collect dust from my miter saw. I have already tried 3 different set-ups since I got my 1.5 hp dust collector. My miter saw doesn’t slide. First I tried connecting the dust collector hose to the saw’s dust port but that didn’t work at all. On my second attempt, I tried positioning the hose right behind the saw. That set-up worked a lot better, but quite a bit of dust was still escaping collection. My third attempt is the current set-up I have now. I positioned the hose right up close to the blade. It’s the best set-up. It does a pretty good job, but I still get a thin layer of dust on the workbench. This is the only tool that I have had a dust collection problem with. If I can solve this problem, then my shop will be cleaner. If anyone has any suggestions, I am open.
