I have been using this saw for about a year now maybe more. The other day I noticed a new scraping sound and found that the weight of my dust collector tube had caused a plastic pin to break allowing the metal of the chute to scrape on the blade.

Have any of you also had this problem and what has been your fix?

I removed the whole stock dust collection shroud and added a 4” dust collection shroud to the bottom. I didn’t do it because of anything breaking.

Do you know where I can find such a shroud?

I had to custom make it. Here’s a post where it’s shown.

Ah yes, I see. Makes perfect sense now. My first thought was also to make it more funnel shaped. Great thought and thanks. See that as being much cheaper than buying something. Seen a product very similar premade but much more expensive than a few scraps of plywood.

Yes, the same happened to me. I took the back panel off and zip tied the chute back up to get it off the blade. Long term I plan to make a dust mod as described and get rid of the chute altogether.

Really been the only issue I’ve had with the saw, been very good to me otherwise.

I had the same problem. Very furstrating and cheaply built part of the saw….However, like said above it’s my only complaint with the saw

I just bought the saw and I am having difficulty removing the shroud. I took the back panel off, and was able to access the 2 screws near the table but I think there is a flat head hex screw at the bottom of the shroud that is only accessible from the inside and it is challenging to see and I can’t really get my hand in there to loosen it. For those of you who removed the shroud, any tricks? Am I missing something. WhyMe, nice job on the modification. I intend to do something similar, probably with a funnel shaped chute under the saw.

Trying to remember but I think I tilted the motor head to 45deg to get at that one screw. I’ll take a look at the saw later to see if I can refresh my memory.

Hah! Solved my own problem. Raised the motor up to the top, which gave me access to the hole in the frame the shroud is attached to. The small phillips head on the allen wrench that comes with the saw is perfect for undoing the screw that is holding the shroud in place.

Thanks for your reply, WhyMe. I think I posted just about the same time that you did.

Sorry I’ve been really busy and didn’t get to look at my saw. Glad you figured it out. I knew the screw could be gotten to but just didn’t remember how.

Have your say...
