I’ve been tackling dust for awhile now in my garage and still find myself having to give my contractor style TS more consideration. I was considering purchasing a dust hood for my Rigid TS 3650, but I’m not convinced it would improve the situation as I’m not exactly sure how they are meant to be attached.
Right now I have a 4” PVC going to the TS and than a short run of 4” flex piping, which has a reducer right at the tool, connected to its dust port. I thought I could mount the dust hood to a board, which is attached to the bolts that connect the upper and lower portions of my saw? The only thing making me question this is all of the openings in my saw and loosing the direct connection to the dust port built in the saw. It seems like it could produce more dust at the top
I know a lot of folks have/or had this saw, so I’m hoping there are some good ideas out there. I wasn’t going to seal the back up either, so I can still tilt the motor and most of the dust comes out the bottom….or top!
