Hi semi47

I also have a Craftsman Table Saw and I tried to find a plan for a dust collection system but I could not find one so I made this one. see link below

It's a plastic flower pot , :) ya I know LOL , but it was easy to make and the best part it works great, little black paint and it looks stock.. :)

On the table saw I have it came with a plastic part under the saw that a bag was hooked on to it, I removed the bag and dilled 4 small holes for screws and put in a wooden block inside the pot (3/4"x 4" x4") and put in a 2 1/2" plastic tube in I got from Rockler so the vac.hose would side in just right.

Screwed the block in place inside of the pot now I have a Vac.system for the Craftsman Saw that works great..

I also put a wooden block in the bottom of the pot because it had a drain holes in the bottom .

see snapshots on the links.

Hope this helps for your saw :)

Just a Note*** I did raise my saw with some wooden blocks (off the base frame) so it's the same height as the rest of my tables in the shop, in that way when I need some help to hold the long or the big stock I can use the other tables by rolling the saw over to that spot in the shop,but you don't need to put in the vac. pot .:)

Semi47, Sears sells a plastic dust collection system kit for their saws. I got one free when I purchased my saw many years ago. This kit has an opening for their large shop vac hose and works pretty well. I will measure the pieces and make a plan from them. This should be a one size fits all saws situation.

Semi, is this a portable table or a full sized table?

I think I'm confused here...
A cabinet for underneath as well as basically "wrapping around" the saw?

Yes Ken, I am convinced this is one of the benchtop saws. I have seen the support and surround cabinet plans, not sure about the dust collection. Now I just need to remember where it was.
