Default Addition To Jerry's Thread On Dust Collection

I tried three time to post to the original thread about the dust collection system on a TS.

I went to the shop and put an insert with a very wide slot in it. The insert is one that I use when tilting the blade to 45 degrees. This should allow for a little better airflowa as suggested by Bill in the original thread on this subject. After cleaning out the cabinet so that results of the experiment can be seen, I c32onnected the DC and took a piece of pine that is 2x2" and cut several stripes 1/32" wide from the left side of the blade so that the dust created by the cuts would get caught in the airflow. See results in the photo. The next step will be to see what happens when ripping a flat piece of stock that will cover the opening in the insert, hopefully when the airflow starts again after the cuts are made the dust will suckec into the DC. If this works, I'll start drilling holes in the ZC insert and let you know what happens.

The next step was to drill six half inch holes into the right side of ZC insert and give it a try. GOOD NEWS, IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS GOING TO WORK. I ripped several pieces of 3/8" plywood and the dust seemed to be cleaned as well as when i did the first test cuts without the opening being covered when the cuts were made. Will have tos how works over time of course, but so far, the DC is, for a change working better on the TS.

One more example of the great value of this forum, thanks again Bill for the suggestion.

Next day after drilling the holes in the ZC insert spent a couple of hours in the shop and did quite a bit of cutting on the TS with the DC connected. When I finished cutting for the morning, was cutting a set of legs for a new table, I checked the build up of sawdust in the cabinet, the floor was completely clean in an are about eight inches wide, there was a little build up on the sides but not much. What a differece drilling the holes in the insert made.

Jody, here is a photo of the holes in the insert, again, picture was taken with a wide angel lens which in this case has distorted the shape. Jerry
