    Oct 07, 2016 Table saw dust collection upgrade #3 - Fill the gaps. The majority of the gaps around the saw should be closed in to help concentrate the suction to around the blade and help keep dust from escaping. You don't want to fill every gap and make your saw air tight otherwise you will starve your dust collector of air and lessen your dust collection

    Oct 10, 2013 That is what we are doing with our dust collector. You need a big pipe, big volume. Once the dust escapes the port, it is gone. If you increase your duct size your DC motor will appear to slow down. This is because it is moving more air. Depending on your DC, this could cause an overload in the motor, especially if your motor is 110 volt

    Dec 27, 2011 As I recall, the industry standard for wood working dust collection recommends at least 400CFM airflow in order to collect and suspend dust and debris in a ducted system. This requirement can barely be met with a 4” duct system—and it is not possible to attain that airflow in a 2 1/2” system with a typical woodshop DC.It is astounding how even a larger system like the
