My awesome son just installed about 30’ of 6” duct , 3 – 4” drops and one 6” drop. Thank you David.!!!!!! The 6” duct connects to a collector/plenum behind the chop saw. no more sawdust all over!!! I am so stoked!!!

Rob, nice Fix Up!

Let us all know if your son ever comes up for adoption. :-)

Now that is a proper dust collection system. Congrats on this Rob. I wish I had a set-up like that. It was great of your son to do that for you. Maybe I should show it to my son to give him a guilty conscience,lol.

Looking great, Rob. Nothing like a good dust collection to improve your attitude in the shop!
