Dust-Catching Shrouds/Prototypes

Improving the dust-collection system in our saw/join room. Hubby has dedicated vents behind saws and under sander connected to the vacuum system, but some dust still flies. He made foam mock-ups and is now replacing with the real thing.

For the saws:

and the sander:

There's a 'door latch' on either side of the saw shroud (see at left). It does something.

That saw shroud looks kinda like mine. It doesn't actually work all that well, but I don't use that saw too often either. Mostly just for cutting down the odd metal.
:cool: Rick
That sander dust catcher seems huge compared to the amount of dust actually created. My version is a fancy version of Rob Markoff's "envelope trick" that he uses to catch debris when drilling holes in walls. I'll try to post a picture of it tomorrow.

Thanks, Rick! We love seeing good ideas. :beer:
