About fifteen years ago I purchased a Delta Contractor’s Table Saw and after sweeping up mountains of sawdust I decided that it was time to do this a little smarter. I bought a table saw dust bag which I can honestly say has served me well in the past but now that I have retired from the Air Force and don’t have to worry about moving weight anymore I’ve decided to add to my collection. The new additions have included a 1958 Shopsmith and my most recent purchase, a Jet dust collector. Now that I have a dust collector I decided that it was time to retire that old table saw bag and replace it with some kind of enclosed setup that would connect to the dust collector. After looking at several designs and going from building a workstation down to what I really needed which became a simple downslope style. After I got it built I decided that it needed a coat of paint and it just so happened that I had some grey that matched the existing Delta grey pretty close. Unfortunately the dinner bell rang before I could run a board through it to see how well it works but I’m sure I’ll sneak back into the garage after dinner and test it out. I think the next plan is to build a zero-clearance throat plate and maybe I’ll finally have this table saw dust collection under control.
