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.
