Breaking the 100% complete posting rules a bit, It’s 85% done. I ran into some work and won’t be getting back to the second drawer and final trimmings for a couple months.
I decided to throw my 10” slider into the vehicle for permanent job site duties. I was sick of dust blowing up in my face every time I used it in my shop. I can’t live without the slider for job site performance but anything that needs a large crosscut I can do on my panel sled on the table saw in my shop.
95% dust collection estimate, using my DC and shop vac in tandem. 4” DC port in the bottom of the cabinet with a 7 inch flared input. The high CFM input on the bottom and a 2.5” shop vac connected to the saw make it almost dust free.
This miter saw station was all about getting the dust situation of my miter saw settled to a point I could live with. This setup exceeded what in my mind was except able for dust collection. I haven’t even needed to vacuum out the dust hood yet. The 2 vac system gets almost everything on the initial cut.
