Yo whats up everybody so I got my skil tablesaw yesterday and it took about 3 hours to set it up and I filmed the whole thing so part 1 of that series will be out next week. I made a few cuts with the saw and it is a nice saw the only problem is there is sooooooooo much dust that goes everywhere and I didnt realize this when I got it but the entire bottom of the saw is open so what I will probably do is take the saw off the stand mount it to a piece of plywood and put a dust port on that. The problem with dust is that it gets all over out 4 wheelers and stuff like that and its just a pain to clean up. I will do a review of the saw next week sometime.

Nice set-up on the saw. Looks like it should do the trick for the sawdust.

If you want an easy solution to dust collection underneath the saw. Mount it on legs or a plywood base and get some spring clips (like metal clothespins). Use a 15-30 gal plastic trash back and clip it underneath the saw. I don’t do this for my table saw as I’ve got dust collection but it works nicely for my jointer.
