    Re: Saw Dust Collection for New TS3660

    The bottom of the saw has two pieces of 3/4" mdf you can see the split in the pic where I'm holding up the front piece. That piece is beveled 45 degrees on the side where the handle is for tilting the blade to clear the support there. The dust flange is screwed to, and sealed with silicone to the rear piece. The flange overlaps the front piece. The rear of my saw has two holes where I attach approx 1/8" screws (you can see one in the lower right corner of pic below). I slide the main rear board up from the bottom holding it out about 1/2" till the holes in the board are over the screws then push it down and attach securing nuts. I went to a local craft store and bought magnetic tape, attached it to the rear of main board (see pic) primarily to help seal the rear. Hopefully this is clear if not PM me your cell and best time to call and I will go over it on a call. Good Luck...

    Forgot to add the rear boards are 1/8" or 3/16" mdf

      Really nice closure on the back of the saw, PMR. I like how you came in from the side to catch the blade guard/ splitter mounting arm. I did a similar set up with the tape but used 1/4" tempered Masonite to keep the weight down. I continue to use the original shroud port but I plumbed in a string of elbows and 45's to get it down to the leg support. I secured it with a sheetmetal screw and the only time I need to disturb anything is when cutting angles and the new plumbing gets in the way. All in all, I like PMR's set up best.
