Hi,
Starting a thread to just cover dust collection.

The saw comes with a 2 1/2 port.
There is a DC shroud.

I am interested in hooking it up to a DC, not a vac.

Any suggestion on how it could be done?

Thanks

Here is what I did. Not sure how the legs\base are attached or if my design could be modified to fit your saw but it might be worth considering. You can find more photos in “my projects”.

I think your saw does have a shroud around the blade, under the table, so you existing dust collection port is probably not as bad as it could be without it.

Well… Did a bit of work an opened the back of the saw…
I could easily fit suction really close to the blade, and pull dust from much closer than the port.
Will do that mod in a few weeks.. Will keep you posted.

I’m waiting to see this mod. You may be able to do something if you don’t ever tilt the blade to 45 deg.

Thanks Mike. It was a long overdue project I finally put together a dust collection solution.

Well, went full circle today.
My quest started with the fact that a 2HP DC needed 6’ pipes… and reducing that to 2 1/2 for my saw could have been a problem. Mind you I am just readying my little workspace – I have received most tools and assembled them, but no experience with them. DC is a must in my case, shop is the basement, just a door away from family room…
Spoke with a very nice rep art Busy Bee today. He has a small cabinet ship himself so he has real ice knowledge of all this.

Long story short, 1HP is plenty enough for my setup. On 4” pipes. So I will jet try a reducer to the Delta, and see how it goes. I could eventually play with the shroud, but it’a metal and it seems complicated to remove it.

This DC will give me 5X the suction I would get with my CT26. Should suck all right!

Time will tell, thanks for chiming in
