I recently purchased the Rigid double bevel sliding compound miter saw and just got it set up on my work bench. Rigid seems to be pretty popular, so I’m hoping someone here has sorted out a good plan of attack for getting some of the dust this thing produces! I think if I could keep the hose from popping out and get the folks at Keen to start selling their sliding miter saw dust collection kit I would be good to go, but it appears to be on hold and I heard the creator of the products is no longer with us. I thought about building a hood as I’ve seen some nice ones out there but I couldn’t Imagine the math involved in my double beveled 62 degree miter on both sides! Taking it liaise is not an option as I spent several hours dialing it in to a common fence with precision kit and to my bench. I have this saw, some attempts have been better than others but nothing worked really well. Before you pick up those woodworking tools, take the time to ensure your safety in the shop! If you are selling your work, then you have entered a woodworking dimension with added complexity and stress. DISCLAIMER: Any posts on LJ are posted by individuals acting in their own right and do not necessarily reflect the views of LJ. So I have a Craftsman 113 series contractor saw and because contractors saws as a general rule have zero dust collection built in I need to add some.
I recommend turning the saw upside down and takingyour time with the project, using other tools to cut parts.
FWIW, i have 2 emerson bult 10” CI TSs, one a 70s vintage c-man, the other a 2003 ridgid 2412. Heck, I just used some tiny spring clamps and hung a garbage bag from the bottom rim of the saw cabinet.


I will evetually add this modification to close up the back: (This is a shot of another LJ members DC mod to their TS. Since my saw was different than the one in the article I needed to modify my approach to the problem. Given the light weight dust coming off the miter saw, it would also serve you well to use a dust collector instead of a shop vac as high air flow is much more important than being able to generate a high vacuum.
I haven’t done anything to mine yet, but I noticed that alot of dust goes sideways and down.
You need close capture, the dust port you are attached to now, with the high static pressure produced by a shop vac.
Then last year I saw the FWW article that Toolie references and decided that it was the best solution for me. One of the things that I needed to do was to slightly change the length of the v-belt in order for the motor to swing to a full 45 degrees. My opinion is that it works very well but to really catch all the dust you need to have a solution for the top of the saw also. I found MS dust collection one of the most frustrating aspects of my shop; I use my MS a lot and it is the biggest dust producer. Somewhere I remember seeing a box that acted as a venturi, creating an area of faster air speed at the opening caused by the mid section low pressure of the venturi, just cant find the image. The problem is that although it is quite contained in it’s horizontal plane when doing a cut, but the vertical plane changes dramatically from the beginning of the cut to the end of the cut.
I have found that if you pull the blade past the work piece, plunge and then cut pushing the blade in most of the dust is captured.
If I went to the trouble of closing off the rear portion of the saw, I’d probably contain closer to 90%.


Now that my workshop build is nearing completion, I want to make a new Dust Collection “Box” for my De Walt DW708 Compound Mitre Saw. I tried a number of different blade shroud designs and different hood designs; they improved the dust collection but it was still poor. I usually place it so the shroud is slightly tilted up so the saw dust that collects on the bottom has a tendency to slide down closer to the port to be sucked in.
I’m thinking of doing a traditional dust hood for the rear, and then make a large chute under the saw that has cross-members to support the saw. You need a hood with the largest volume of air flow you have available, Like your dust collector.These two types of air flow will never be obtained from the same machine so we are talking about two dust control systems connected to one saw. Eventually I upgraded my DC to a 5hp Clearvue; this pretty much solved all my MS dust collection problems. I am running a 5hp installed Dust extraction system with a large steel cyclone and plenum box with filter bags. The use of the drywall corner bead was a one of those brain farts when I was trying to think of an easy cheap way to connect the thin lauan together. Only issue is, I dont think my harbor freight dust collector can handle two 4” hookups.
The SCMS is in a permanent position in the shop, I don’t do many compound cuts and I have a large space availalable behind the device.

    If you will be tackling those type the tool's field which is fairly like 3-4 months.
