A good dust extraction setup on a solid-sized table saw will save you and everyone else in the shop a ton of flying dust in the face — and keep both the work area and the tool a lot cleaner. The Exaktor dust extraction system may look a bit cumbersome, but given the nature of aftermarket dust collectors on table saws, it’s not bad.
The installation looks pretty easy as the system’s vertical mast stands on the floor and is adjustable to the height of the saw table. As you might imagine, this unit will work with almost type or model of table saw.
The upper section of the mast is fastened with two locking levers to the right hand end of the saw table or table extension. The mast supports a telescopic 70” lateral boom equipped for attaching a 4″ vacuum hose. When needed, the horizontal boom and blade cover can be swung out of the way allowing easier access to the saw when changing blades or for maintenance purposes.
Clean freaks can get that table saw cleaning up after itself for around $370. Yeah, that’s a little pricey, then again it is Hemi orange.
