Jan 21 '20 at 21:16 comment added Harper - Reinstate Monica @SolarMike Because people will pay for the feature, but I have my doubts how long they press on dragging a 2-3" hose around with the tool, when it still allows 1/3 of the sawdust to escape. Radial arm saws have their leakage too, but the best thing is how it forces you to do all your cutting in one location.
Jan 21 '20 at 21:10 comment added Solar Mike @Harper-ReinstateMonica so why do many hand portable tools have pipe atrachments?
Jan 21 '20 at 21:07 comment added Harper - Reinstate Monica @SolarMike It's easy to put dust collection on standing tools like a table saw or radial arm saw for instance. However OP is doing the cutting with hand-portable tools, like a circular saw and Sawzall. Putting dust collectors on those is impracticable, hence OP's confusion.

Jan 21 '20 at 6:52 comment added aparente001 Maybe you mean work flow? I'm not sure ethics are involved.... I was imagining something like "put a damp drop cloth underneath," "keep the humidity in the room high," "make sure you don't walk on the sawdust which would mean tracking it around," "vacuum frequently."
Jan 21 '20 at 6:40 comment added Solar Mike Cost of filters, how quickly they get blocked. Up to you - plan your own work ethic.
Jan 21 '20 at 6:37 comment added aparente001 So this is so you don't have to empty the shop vac itself? Hmm. What's wrong with emptying the shop vac periodically? I don't normally do a lot of sawing. // So how often am I supposed to vacuum? After each cut? How about if the assistant stands by and points the shop vac during the sawing process, so as to collect the dust before it goes all over the room?

Jan 21 '20 at 5:51 comment added Solar Mike So there are many youtube videos shiwing how good homemade ones are - can’t you find them?
Jan 21 '20 at 5:37 comment added aparente001 I know what a shop vac looks like. But I don't know how it's supposed to automatically pick up the sawdust that falls to the floor when the saw (e.g. circular saw, saws all, etc.) is working.
Jan 21 '20 at 5:32 comment added Solar Mike Do a youtube search for shop dust collector or go to a big store and buy a stove ash can - does the same thing...
Jan 21 '20 at 5:29 comment added aparente001 Thank you. Can you link to an image or video? I'm having trouble imagining what that would look like. This has something to do with the shop vac?
