bobj3 Hi

You will see a snapshot of it , see the above posted items, the pot is about 12" in diam. and has some sheet metal screws holding to the fac.bag shroud under the saw, I did raise the saw off the base frame with some 2 x 4 blocks on each corner, about 4" long to get some more room for the pot because I put a shelf under the pot ,for junk to set on (saw accessories)

I cut a 2 1/2" hole in the pot and made a support block for it and glued the tube to the block then screwed it to the inside of the pot ..

bobj3 Hi Greg

I didn't like it, it is/was a bit lame real PITA to get it off and on the machine so I use a plastic flower pot, I know that sounds a bit lame also but it's works well, just slip the hose in place and it sucks most of the dust down and out the tube..

bobj3 Hi greg

Yes, it will take on the dado blades, in the snapshot you will see a pocket hole for the dado blades (in the sub.fence) I did made my own table plate for the blades.. out of some white 1/4" thick plastic..

awoodnut I am still using a makita 8" I've had for 20 years with no problems. I also use the Rousseau table and guide and a seperate drop table from Rousseau. The saw just sets into the table whene you need a bigger surface or leave it on the bench for a smaller foot print.

Definatly not a cabinet saw but I get what I need out of it. I put a sacrificial fence on the makita fence that came with it and as long as you take a little extra time with set up it gets the job done.

One big ishue that came up is look at the insert and how hard it is going to be to build a 0 clearance insert for it. One of the guys had one that had almost no support for a plastic insert and the suppots where only down 1/8" so can't get it to hold plastic, to thin. Not shure which brand it was orange and grey I think.

Ghidrah I've been using an 8" Makita since the late 80s when my 10" Craftsman died and a 10" Mak since 02 I think. The 8" is getting old and beginning to complain when it starts up, I probably shouldn't have used it for tile cutting.

The 10" is light enough to muscle around and heavy enough to remain stable and produce reliable and reproducible cuts. Both are direct drives an the newer Maks don't look bad either.

Belt drive cont. saws much heavier more expensive really belong in the shop unless you have a couple of young bulls working for you.

Bench tops lighter less expensive great for rough carpentry, (framing)
Belt driven Cont Saws more expensive heavier and produce a better overall cut over a longer period if they're maintained well.
