  • TS2410LS hookup to dust collection

    Just completing a dust collection system in my small shop. Last thing to hook up is my TS2410 contractor saw. I closed in the underside of the saw by removing it from the folding stand, attaching a sheet of plywood with a hole cut out to fit a Rockler dust hood. The saw comes with a fitting for a 2 1/2" hose attached to the blade area, with a plastic blade cover that fits over the blade below the table, to isolate the area around the blade. I have a Rockler dual port attachment with both a 4" and 2 1/2" hose attachment, but I'm wondering if it's worth the trouble of hooking up that 2 1/2" hose. I'm considering just blocking that off, removing the plastic blade cover inside the saw, and just hooking up the 4" hose to the dust port. It's going to be a PITA to rig it so both hoses can be used, and still fold up the saw when not in use.

    Any guidance on this would be appreciated.

      Here ya go.

      I mounted a Rocker dual port router fitting on a 1x4 between the stand handles. The bottom of the saw was enclosed with a piece of 1/4" plywood, with a cutout for a Rockler tabletop dust fitting. Mounted in the right place, it just clears the stand when folded. I have a Rocker dust-right hose and handle which slips on the dust port when needed. Works well, and still lets me fold up the saw to conserve space.
