Thanks for the reply, cabmaker. If I decide to cut the hole, what should I use to do that? Also, does the 6” port still have value if it’s served by a 4” internal duct?

The blade guard/hood that came with the saw has only a 1.5” port on it, so I’ll have to do some serious stepping down to get hose to fit it (and the balance between main port and hood port seems way off, if they’re both being served by the same DC).

I will collect above the table, but I may just use a shop vac, or I may just get rid of the stock hood and get a Shark Guard, which has a 4” port as an option. (Seems a waste of money, and I’ve already spent plenty on this saw, though!)
