Shop down for a month now as I am working on dust.
Miter saw in a nice box enclosure with 6” pipe to DC also hooked up to my festool shop vac to port on saw. Really looked like I had a winner until I turned on my dylos meter. High reading as I cut. I made some modifications with no luck.
Than I started looking at the retractable blade shroud, it has lots of 3/4 inch holes pointed right at me. I taped them up and started to get much better readings.
So I see other miter saws with these holes and some without. Why are they there? It would have to be a pretty good reason to allow the dust in my face. This is the invisible dust, before I turned on the dylos meter I thought I had a winner.
