First of all, I love my panel saw. It’s a Milwaukee.
What I don’t love is all the dust it makes and the hassle of cleaning up after making a bunch of cuts. I kept running into pictures of an item called the “big gulp”
I finally decided to get one. Since I didn’t want to hook it up to my big vac, I ordered a step down for my shop vac which of course didn’t fit… I did find some schedule 40 4” id plastic pipe so that I was able to connect the two parts using the handyman’s secret weapon (duct tape), and a few screws. I then used self taping screws to fasten it to the back of the panel saw into the sheet metal.
I hooked up the shop vac, connected it to a slave switch with the panel saw, turned it on a made a few cuts and bingo.
I won’t say there was no dust when I was done but there wasn’t a heck of a lot on the ground or in the air. Works good!
