This is the way I have directed my RAS and router dust to cyclone also have a 22 inch edge sander in which I built a separate box using same slide in fitting.The boxes on RAS and edge sander has to have angled walls toward center to get 90 plus % of dust or else it just lays i back corners

Some innovative dust control solutions to some difficult equipment. Do you still use your radial arm saw a lot? I had a Craftsman but finally gave it away. Can’t say I really miss it.

Great job.

Easy to hit the point of diminishing returns, trying to capture RAS dust. I think you nailed the sweet spot !

Is it a 925, or … which model ?

Yes it is a 925 and been in family since my father purchased it new and if I remember him saying it was 299.00. I have had it for maybe 10 yrs before that it just sat in there basement. Great saw and it gets used everyday. I have a full set of acces with it and the metal box. Im just oposite I hardly use my miter saw .

Two weekends ago, I helped my brother finish the total restore on his ‘59 925.

Very nice saw you got there, and … the history makes it THAT much cooler !

Nice setup, I miss using my RAS myself, they are a dying breed, but nothing beats them for cross cuts. Might have visit CL and see what RAS’s are available in my area.
Great way to contain the dust, my wife tells me my lungs are not the appropraite dust filter ;-D

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
