I saw a half-page write-up in a dust collection book that showed a way to box off the bottom of a contractor saw. It looked easy and thought I would give it a try. With my PowerMatic saw, it was a little more difficult because the horizontal braces have a 45 degree angle, which forced me to cut multiple pieces for the sides, and to offset the sides to the angle’s width.
I used 3/4” plywood for the side bottoms, and 3/8” plywood for the bottom and back. Pegboard was used as pattern makers choice. I may need to replace the pegboard with hardboard, if suction is effected.
I used a bandsaw to cut the smaller shapes and notches, to get the right fit.
Thanks for looking.
