Got a new Porter Cable Table Saw and I have been making ALOT of sawdust. They way the it is built it forces all of the saw dust out of a dust port out of the back of the saw. Sawdust was getting over everything. Needed a cheap solution to capture the dust. I don’t have enough money for a full on dust collecting vaccum system and my roll around shop vac doesnt fit the outlet.
So I have had empty 5 gallon paint container laying around, intended to be turned into a cyclone for my shop vac and never got to it. So after putting the two items together I made a bucket to capture all the dust.
Using a hole saw I cut a 2.5” hole in the bucket and it is such a tight fit it supports itself on the 2.5” outlet of the saw. The cover on the bucket prevent dust flying out and it captures everything coming out. Just slide of to empty and slide back on the collect!
Hope this helps some other people having the same problem and a limited budget.
