  • Sheeting the back of the TS2424

    I found this article on nearly stopping all dust from spewing out the back of your tablesaw.

    Here is the link:
    http://www.woodmagazine.com/default....47___129___360

    So happens they are demonstrating this on a Ridgid TS2424-0 table saw. My saw is a TS2424-1 with the herc-u-lift and dust chute. I thought I might try this with the on mine while still using the vacuum dust chute attachment and shop vac.

    Will there be any trouble or voids of the warranty Jake if this were applied? One step closer to catching all the sawdust... Has anyone else tried this???

      I saw the same article - I made mine out of cardboard and attached it with blue masking tape as a "temporary" fit up as I had alot of ripping to do. That was months ago and it works so well that I may never remove it. Please note that cutting the cover out so you can tilt the blade will seriously reduce its effectiveness: I just take it off to bevel cut.

        Great link! Thanks!

        I haven't seen the Ridgid dust chute. Will it with with the cover in place? If so, I may get one myself.

            I fit a "standard" dust collector to the bottom of mine, I just had to drill a couple of holes in the plastic to accomodate the existing hole locations in the saw. Works reasonably well, better if you cover the back like shown in the Wood magazine article.

            How did the 2424 do in the Wood Magazine product reviews? Must have been the best since they use it in a bunch of articles.

              I enclosed the back of my saw many years ago and it has worked fine. I used masonite and remove it for bevel cuts. The velcro idea is new to me as mine uses two metal screws to hold the pieces in place. With the back enclosed my dust system with a vac works well.

                For the TS2424, I made mine out of cardboard and duct tape. Its been there for a few months now, taking it off for bevel cuts every once in a while, replacing the tape when needed. I put duct tape also on all seams where the saw box joins the table top, and the few holes at the bottom front edge of the box. BTW, I also made cardboard covers to close the arc gaps in front of the saw box around the hand wheel and the bevel lock. With the front and back covers, zero insert, all that duct tape and the ridgid dust chute at the bottom, the whole box is sealed well and the ridgid shopVac, which I put in its own wooden muffler box, the whole thing works like a dream! Also cuts down significantly all the noise!
