YouTuber and veteran woodworker Frank Howarth decided to build a table, fence, and dust collection for his two big DeWalt radial arm saws. He films the process over a beautifully-edited 17-minute video above.
"I built the new dust collection to come from below the table," says Howarth. "I did this by building wooden ductwork to carry the air away from the saws. The new table is made of two layers; a sub-layer of particle board and a top layer of MDF. I had to cut holes in both of these layers to make the table fit under the two saws - one set of holes for the saw columns and another set for the dust collection ports. The new fence has the dust collection flowing through it. This will keep the dust off the table and suck the dust directly away from the blade as it's cutting the work piece.
