  • new boy on the block.....

    ok guys , Just like to say I have really enjoyed this forum. It has helped me decide to opt for a big mother saw ,better to cut me fingers off with it.
    I was over at HD the other day checking out the floor model. so this week I am cleaning out the basement to make room for the new machine.
    I like the way the router can sit on the extensions.
    so hi to all will keep ya posted on the developements.

    p.s. can I hook up a wet-dry shop vacuum for the debris?

    Assuming you're talking about the TS3650 table saw... Yes, the dust collection shroud on the under-side of the saw is made for a shop-vac sized connection (about 2.5").

    Works quite well, as long as you're using the cutter guard assembly (which you always should!!) Without the cutter guard, I get a lot more shrapnel throw up at me.

        Welcome to the forums, Smelly! I hope you enjoy your new TS. I really love my 3650. I hope you can post some pics when you get it set up.
        I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

          You're going to love the saw. As far as dust collection goes, there are better methods but that's going to be 1000% better than doing nothing. One other thing to do for yourself. Get a pair of muff hearing protectors - like you see the pit crews wear at the races. You gotta save your hearing while you're young because the loss is cumulative over your lifetime. I've been dealing with loss and ringing since I was in my 20's when I worked on the railroad and ran pneumaitc jacks. People didn't think of things like that back then. Now use muffs to cut the grass!

              So, smelly, where'd ya get that handle?
              Welcome to the forum.

              I bought a 3650 last Dec and really like it. I use a Ridgid 16gal shop vac for dust collection, too. Like ironhat said, the dust collection port built in to the TS3650 doesn't catch all the dust, but it gets most of it. I just get a little on the floor that needs swept up every so often.

                yo Djb
                I took that handle, about 3 years ago, I own a convience store with self serve gas pomps, so I used to use the nick "gasman" then one day going to another site on the web some one had used it to log in, so I changed to smelly , because a way back we offered service to pomp the gas and as you know gas stinks, .... so I took the smelly nick

                  Ridgid has a DC5050 Whole Shop Dust Collection Network, which i've started to see in a couple HD's. It's a kit to hook up your vac to your tools....looks cool, wonder how it works.

                    it just hooks up to a regular vacuum or a industriel vacuum
