Drill-Press Dust Collector

Wood chips and sawdust don t stay around long when you hook up this clamp-down collector to your shop vacuum or dust-collection system. You ll breathe a lot easier, and cut down cleanup time, too. Use the Exploded View drawing to construct the collector from 1/4" plywood and 3/4" stock. Cut or sand 10° bevels across the top and sides of the 3/4"-thick back, where shown below. To reduce sawdust buildup at table level, sand a bevel across the front edge of the bottom piece.
