Shop improvement No. 3. I have been plagued by the dust kicked back from the saw during ripping. I had always wanted to build an overhead unit, but settled on one attached behind. the saw, loosen one bolt and it comes off for dadoes, angle cuts etc. I use all solid wood so I do allot of ripping. My electrolux hose just got shorter and a shark vacuum hose did the trick for a flexible light weight section. Living 300 miles from home depo you use what you have on hand. The counter weight idea didn’t work, could not find a spring, so robbed a shock cord that my wife was using,I will replace it with springs soon. Infact very soon.
It works wel, NO KICK BACK DUSTl so will use it till I come up with a better idea. Any commentS and improvement suggestions are appreciated.
