Default Some brainstorming, let me know what you think.

I got a model of TS that encases the blade in a way that the dust, actually part of the dust, goes right into the exit, this is the design:



So, I was wondering, if I put a powerful blower in the exit tube of the dust, instead of a vacuum, since the blower is way more efficient at.. well, blowing, that would in theory make the dust go up and get caught by what I plan to put on top, something like this:



If I combine the blower with a modest turbine, it probably would work really well, the key here is to wrap the blade the best I can so the dust don't get blowed everywhere .

Let me know if you think this would work, or if this is a crazy idea.

(Take into account that naturally with the normal air flow that is caused by the spinning of the blade, the dust gets expelled where I'm planning to put a blower, that is the part I'm not sure would work)

Funny as I see your idea in theory , but I have this weird feeling there's going to be a mess lol.
I think you create a vector when your sucking and you'll loose that efficiency by blowing . Just my 2cents

I had another thought . I'd hate to see that horizontal plate that surrounds the blade get pushed out of place by the blowing and hit the blade.
Although I guess your hood will keep it from going to far

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Wish you could borrow one for a test as I'd be curious to see the outcome . I think it's just creating more of a contridiction with the natural direction the dust is traveling than anything

I vote no. No way would I want the zero clearance insert plate coming loose while the blade is spinning.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Try it, then you'll know. Sounds like an interesting concept.
Do you think the blowing will be in direct opposition to the blades natural expelled air direction?
What's wrong with sucking both the blade guard outlet and the bottom outlet?
ie. a wye connection on the DC hose?

The insert (that is not a zero insert) has a couple of screws holding it, so there is no way to float or anything like that.

But yeah, if for any reason that happens.. I don't want to be close when/if happens. I can ruin the blade, saw and some parts of my body in the process.

VOTE NO!!!!!

Get the largest DC you can afford/fit into your shop...
put a 6'' on the chassis of the saw and a 4'' on the top side... call it good...
the blower will over whelm the vac...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

But Stick, the blower will blow in the same direction the DC would suck, it's a joint effort!.
