Many thanks, all. The advice to try what’s supplied before chopping holes in my cabinet saw is both sensible and comforting (a rare enough combination!), and I’ll follow it and see how it goes.

Crank49, many thanks – I appreciate your professional perspective in particular. Do you know of any reading which covers the principles you describe that is comprehensible by non-engineers like me?

Paul, I think that I’m looking at something on the order of a 35’ duct run to the saw, once I figure in the distance to the 13’ ceiling and back down to the DC intake. Does that sound like too much to provide the flow you describe?

live4ever, I’ve been thinking about getting a Dylos monitor – just working on overcoming my Scottish heritage (again!) and spending the $250

Now all I have to do is figure out a rig to get the dust from the blade shroud to the DC system – what do you all think – should I fit a boom, or try to work out an overhead drop for the small hose? If a boom, should I try to ease the radius of the first turn out of the shroud, or just go with a 90 degree bend there? Would you recommend a 1.5” hose all the way to the trunk line, or should I step up to something bigger right away?
