I finally got around to modifying my band saw to incorporate some dust collection. WOW, what a difference!
I can not believe how big of an improvement it is over the factory 1 inch port near the blade.
I drilled the fist hole on the drill press with a 3 inch hole saw bit and then cut the rest out with my jigsaw. As you can see, I was very generous with the silicone.
My next step is to devise a way to mount a second duct port where the factory port is now located. I will provide an update when completed and as always, I am open to suggestions and new ideas.
The dust port was siliconed and pop riveted into place and works well with my recently built dust collector.
Hope everyone had a great holiday season.
