Dust collection is essential to keeping your shop and lungs clean, but not every shop has the space for a large dust collector.
Rather than invest in shrouds and pipe connections for both my drill press and scrollsaw, I use a stand-mounted boom that adjusts to put suction just where I need it.
To make my limited number of ports serve more machines, I bought some recreational vehicle (RV) sewer hose fittings.
I already have my router mounted in the extension wing of my tablesaw to save space.
Here’s a simple rig that allows you to position a vacuum hose near the bit, yet easily reposition it when necessary.
The "big ol' bag" dust catcher that I built for my mitersaw collects about 90 percent of the debris.
