I have a sliding compound miter saw and  it is hard to control sawdust with it.  I have a shroud and a vac  hook up,  but it is  still very messy. Because of  slide it has to be deep and at an angle on each side. Does anyone have and suggestions for improvements?

Cecil,

Not much one can do without an elaborate system hookup with an overhead dust vac extractor.

You'll need a big unit for this.

Slides saws do generate lots of dust, and it can get all over the shop.

When using this saw, I move it outside the shop, and do my cutting there.

I hook a vac to the port on the saw,

as well as use a shroud on the back of the unit.

It does okay; however probably only catches about 60% of the sawdust.

I have my miter-slide saw mounted on a mobile stand/cart.

Swivel locking wheel brakes.

Works for me.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction
