Nope. I have that saw, and I have a powerful vac attached to the blade shroud vac attachment, but a good bit of sawdust still hits the floor.

I have this saw. I like it. Twice, I tried to make a dust collection enclosure for this to hook up to my dust collection system. Never did work well. I now have it removed and just roll it out and sweep the floor.

I finally fixed my dust collection on my Rigid 3650 table saw. I found a dust collection system for the Rigid 4510 and installed it on my 3650. it is about 1” to 1 1/2” too short so I used a piece of flat aluminum to extend to cover all of the space that is open and then use A/C tape to seal all of the edges around the bottom stand. If you do this, I do advise to turn the table over on the top and work from the bottom. I could not turn my saw over because I have a router table permanently attached. Screwing it back together was tough. Now I have a clean floor under my saw. I still have dust on the top, but it is minimal.

I hung a big gulp hood on the bottom of my 3650. There is a ledge all around the bottom of the saw itself, where it joins to the legs. I cut a template from 1/8 ply that sits on that ledge, then cut out the middle of it. The gulp just drops into the opening.

It does a pretty good job of catching all the dust from the bottom of the blade and funneling it to the 4” opening on the bottom. I added a 90° fitting to the bottom of the gulp and my dust collector hose attaches to that.

Here is a link to the hood
