So, with my new Craftex CX200 table saw in place and humming away, it’s time to turn my attention to my dust collection setup. I have the Craftex CT030 dust collector running to a chip separator to the various machines. I have noticed that the collection is poor at the TS and I have quite a buildup in the bottom of the cabinet.
I’m wondering if it’s a design flaw of the saw or perhaps it’s time to run a hose straight to the TS and avoid the chip separator. I’ve seen reviews on the cyclone lid from BB which I own and some negative comments on the way the 4” ports are set up so I was looking on the Lee Valley site at their cyclone lids when I came across this:
“Caution: Lids are not recommended for machines with built-in chip impellers”
So it would seem that the lids are only truly meant for systems using vacuums and not a full blown dust collector!
