I just got my first DC system (Delta 50-850) and now I am thinking about how to go about setting up DC for all my tools. Most things are pretty straight forward but the Sliding Miter Saw seems to be a real problem child. I have read many, many threads about how people go about doing this, some as easy as a big rubbermaid storage bin and some very elaborate with hoods, plenums, etc.
As I was looking at all the designs it occurred to me that maybe a quick and free solution would be to pick up an entertainment center on CL for free (there are tons of these things available), put it behind the sliding miter saw, open the doors to an angle, cut some hole in the back for 4” dust ports and there you go.
I was thinking of one like this http://boston.craigslist.org/sob/zip/4370341134.html
If there is a height issue you could make a base for it and then just chop off some of the sides and put the top back on. You could even run the 4” and 2” hose through the bottom drawer area.
So, any thought on this? Do you think it has a shot of working?
