    How's that for adding another tangent?

      Is there any RIGID engineer reading our post? Users comments are often the best feedback.
      I agree with you 110%.What about it Rigid,Lets get on it...

          What do you guys think is better: something like the guy made in the above link, or one that covers the entire bottom. I like what the guy did but I'm thinking you could get more of the dust if you enclose off the entire bottom and let the dust fall where you can suck it out.

          Whata ya think???

            Every time I look at these things I wonder about that little detail of when you drop the blade nut inside. Whatever I do to enclose the saw, I'm going to have to think about "nut retreival" .... It's gonna happen!! Hence why I unplug the saw before even starting to change the blade...
            I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

              I believe that this guy's port is better that "gravity" port. Even the 2 1/4" that came with the saw is better.Gravity ports are effective only when the saw is sealed. With that belt at the back, you can't seal the say. So sucking dust at the source is the best solution for this particular saw.

                There's a motor access door that should make an easy enough to retrieve a nut. A telescoping magnet won't hurt either.

                  sorry to bring up an old post but i believe the reason ridgid went with teh 2-1/2" port is because they sell a dust collection system utilizing their wet/dry vacs
