After using the dust collection on my miter saw I feel I’ve finally found a method that will work to collect almost all the dust. The video below is of a working miter saw station. It’s portable and although not finished completely, everything on it us up and working. It also tells of a few other ideas of mine that are or are not needed in a miter saw station. Your mileage may vary.
Backstory: I’ve had two stationary miter saw stations and one mobile. This is the second mobile one I’ve made. All my tools need to be on wheels to move around so that I can park the ones not being used to make room to work. I’ve been developing ideas to get a 12” compound sliding miter saw in a cabinet with a smaller hood that will catch the dust. These saws are notoriously known for putting out a lot of dust. I have an older table saw that I mainly use for ripping. It has a rip blade in it. So my Bosch miter saw sees a lot of use.
LJ’s have made a lot of miter stations and some are beautiful. Mine is for me.. functional and always a work in progress.
In case the video below doesn’t work for you here it is on youtube.
