Opinions Wanted Frame Square Saw Dust Collection


PFG, Picture Framing God
I'm dragging an old Frame Square saw out of storage and was wondering if anyone who has one of these has crafted some sort of dust collection system.

I found a couple of older threads about this but was wondering if anyone has a good solution that they are currently using.

The best system I've ever used was more of dust handling not collection. I purchased a blower from Grainger and used 6" metal duct work to pipe it outside and blow it into the woods. At the time I didn't have any neighbors within a mile. It worked great for many years.

Probably nothing off the shelf. Woodcraft and possibly Granger, and Grizzly on line should have all the bits and pieces to cobble together something. Biggest challenge would be getting a vacuum system powerful enough to overcome the air gaps in a sliding table saw and quiet enough to use in a retail location.

I cut a piece of 1/4" plywood to the size of the clear out hole in the right side. I attached it with 1/8" offset clips and cut a round hole in it, the diameter of my dust collector hose end. I have a switch that turns the dust collector on when I start the saw.
