This cleaning method does work very well. I have been doing this regularly for a couple of years now, and can quickly get the inside nice and clean. I will say though that even though I am also using a shop vac for “dust collection” I have never had any build up inside the saw get anywhere close to the gears. Unless I forget to turn on the vac, the only dust inside the saw is a couple inches along the sides before it drops down into the collection chute.

Just a different saw design I suppose.

Another thing. When I do the cleaning, there is a lot of fine dust blowing around, so I recommend wearing a dust mask. I do this regularly anyway since I don’t have a full blown dust collection system, but the dust created when I am blowing out the saw is about the worst I see when working in my shop, even though the vacuum part of the vac is trying to suck the dust in as the blower is pushing it out.

Another fine installment in woodworking dementia. Thanks Chad for all you do. Keep em coming. We need a few good men and Dan to, to help us get through all our dusty situations. Hey Chad how about a shop tour? I would like to see some of those old tools you have hanging around.
