To the Knots or Nuts depending on who we talk to. I have a question and hopefully an answer from a expert. I have a Craftsman 10” radial arm saw. It is an older model and works great, cuts very accurate and I have only one complaint. “Dust control”. It is the only tool I have left that doesn’t have a serious dust control set up on it. I have tried several things to control dust that this thing produces. I have had the who back covered with a box, didn’t work, I have under the table dust collection, didn’t work, I have attempted to put a moveable side panel on the housing, didn’t work. I use a 2HP shop vac on the front discharge hose and have even tried a 10 shop vac with reducers, didn’t work. My next attempt is to fill the shroud/Blade guard with spray foam the have an open space at the top that is hooked to my shop vac. What are your thoughts, has somebody all ready invented this wheel? I have seen all kinds of info here on dust collection on table saws, routers, sanders, band saws, jointers and planers, but I haven't seen anything on radial arm saws. Thanks!
