So I recently picked up a new table saw (Porter Cable contractor version) and I hooked it up to my dust collector, made some cuts and low and behold, there was still dust underneath the saw. So I looked underneath and there was about a good 4 inch gap between the shroud housing and the bottom of the top. I did some investigating of other contractor table saws and noticed that the only model that made an attempt to close this gap and keep the blade mostly enclosed was the high end dewalt version.
My question is, has anyone else come across this and tried to remedy the problem without using duct tape? I also realize that I will not catch all the dust from the saw until I collect on top of the blade as well.
Help is appreciated and this is my first post.
