I just purchased a dust collector and am in the stages of hooking everything up. My main concern is the table saw. I have a PCB20TS Porter-Cable table saw. The blade is roughly 75% enclosed with a dust shroud that ejects the dust out the back via a shop-vac sized tube. The vast majority of the dust is ejected out of this tube even without dust collection. The wind from the blade does a great job of removing it. After a big project there is however about a half inch layer of dust on the floor below the saw so it’s not 100% effective. So here are my options:
-go inside the saw and seal the open space between the top of the dust shroud and the bottom of the table top and place the appropriate adapter from the back port to a 4” DC hose.
Time is somewhat of a concern. I have a steady supply of paying projects lined up so I do not want to spend too much time designing and building. Thanks for any and all input. Picture responses welcomed!
