This was a quick modification to try and keep some of the sawdust from building up on the tires. It does keep a lot of the dust from getting into the saw, but the tires still need regular cleaning, just not as often.

I have a brush mounted on the frame that brushes the wheels all the time it is running, also to sawdust pickups, in one the blade under the bottom guide the blade runs though an upturned elbow. Trouble is I don’t always have the dust collector running when I make saw cuts.

+1 for this … Carter has a kit that can be installed on most saws, but some folks cut the handle off a toothbrush and attach it to the frame..
