I have been wanting over table dust collection on my saw for years and have jury rigged some systems at times but with all the other upgrades to my shop in the last while I felt it was time to get a little more serious. I did some research on the internets and found this thread:
I didn’t have an biesmeyer overarm system like in the thread but I have low ceilings! Made completely from scraps (birch ply, spf 2×4, birch and acrylic), it can be locked up using the black knob on the right and is positionable up/down/left/right (pic 5) and is easily removed with two knobs.
My only major change to the hood is the acrylic ramp at the front which allows the hood to ride up over the fence on my crosscut sled.
I am running a $30.00 mastercraft shop vac in to it at the moment and it does and awesome job!
Thanks for looking.
