We’ve covered tools to help collect sawdust from your miter saw here, but this model from FastCap collapses for portability and easy storage. The ChopShop saw hood keeps your work area cleaner by catching the sawdust that sprays behind your saw. When working outside, the saw hood can also help protect your equipment from the elements.
The saw hood works with just about any miter or tile saw. It mounts to the accessory holes on the back of the saw, or directly to a table. After mounting, the hood unrolls into a container for catching dust and cutoffs. Setting up the hood and breaking it down takes less than a minute after the initial installation.
FastCap makes the saw hood from heavy-duty, water-resistant, commercial-grade nylon. When set up, the saw hood measures 42″W x 31″H x 30″D, and at 13 lbs, it’s very portable.
The Chinese-made ChopShop Saw Hood retails for about $130.
