I’d like to say it sucks, but it doesn’t. I wish it did. My problem is NOT my dust collector, it’s the way this bandsaw is set up to collect dust. It’s a Jet JWBS-14CS, with a riser. It’s a craigslist find from 2 years ago.
That connector is too small for a shop vac hose, but I did get an adapter to 4” from Woodcraft. It’s like no dust collection at all.I’m thinking about cutting a hole in the bottom door, and putting in a Y pipe.
I thought the saw was a total piece of crap until I put on a good blade – Carter 1/2” x 3 TPI. Now, it’s ok.
What did you do to get good dust collection from a bandsaw? Thanks!
-- what a long, strange trip it's been...
