The weather is improving so time to start sawing, to make life a bit easier I traded some lumber for a small dust collector and mounted it to the exhaust end of the blade cover then connected 30 feet of 4 \" flex pipe and a power cord both of which are suspended overhead. Hit the switch then start the cut and all sawdust goes outside. After a full day of sawing the only dust on the floor was in side the rails that had come off the saw before it made it to the blower. Most dust came from edging boards at the end of the day.
Now all I need to do is break a blade and have it go out the end of the cover into the impeller. Now that I know it works and the loops in the hose doesn't seem to bother I will try and mount the blower in the basket or behind the blade guard.
I enjoy the photos everyone includes with their posts, however we only have dial up and it takes forever to load photos, I am 58 and do not have that many years left although my dad kept cutting his firewood into his early 80's.
