I’ve had my Powermatic 66 saw for about 6 months now. I aboslutely love it!
But I’ve noticed that when I run my dust collector, a lot of the suction is wasted through the slot opening on the front of the saw that allows the blade raising/lowering wheel to move when the blade is tilted. I’ve thought of just covering it with masking tape, but then I’ve got the tape residue to deal with when I have to remove it to tilt the blade and besides, its ugly.
Is there an accessory rubber or plastic snap-in piece I can get to cover most of this large slot, that someone might know of?
If not, I could try to fabricate one…has anyone done this?
