This clever shop-built dust deflector makes for a cleaner miter saw station.
Even with a dust collection hose attached to a miter saw, dust and wood bits can still be a problem. Jeff Gascho, owner of Dovetail Designs in West Creek, N.J., created his own deflector to confine the dust to a single work station.
The curved setup consists of flexible plywood with laminate that surrounds the back and sides of the miter saw with a plastic curved inset (a basement window covering) at the top, while the dust hose is set into a hole behind the saw. Measurements for the setup were based on the fully extended radius of the saw.

Q: We have a gang rip saw that we have trouble with. When the lumber is about halfway through, the piece travels away from the fence. The infeed has rollers that are at an angle so that the lumber is pushed against the fence. That seems to work well for the beginning of the pieces, but then it moves away from the fence. When we increase the feed roll pressure it seems like it might get worse. Any ideas?
