As I like to catch all the dust possible at the source I came up with this collector assembly for the scroll saw.
!Make a swivel stand with a base to fit onto your saw table and attach with a bolt and a wing nut. At the top of the stand attach a hose retainer part like in the picture and attach it with a bolt and a wing nut which allows it to swivel. My retainer is made for a 2 1/2” hose.
Push a length of hose thru the retainer and adjust the swivel pars til the hose end is near the blade but does not interfer with the moving blade arm. Now attach a shop vac or your 4” collector thru an adapter.
I do have a small open box (had to see in pic) setting under the blade hole to catch the dust which drops thru. I hope this be interesting and will keep some of small dust particles from your lungs.
