Yes it can run without dust collection. Should it be – No! You want to work safe.

You can, like Karson said. Long term its a bad idea, but thats true for all saws.

A decent 1/2 face respirator will get you a long ways in safety. You just can’t take it off. The really fine nasty stuff hangs out for a long time.

Congrats on the saw.

Have your say...
