Although dust collection in bench top and contractor saws has gotten much better as of late, it still leaves much to be desired. No matter how good the dust collection is, the open bottom still leaves an escape route for sawdust. Fortunately the Dust Cutter will catch much of this errant dust rather than let it escape into the air or drop to the floor.
The original Dust Cutter fits most table saws with internal or external motors, up to 20″ wide and 17″ deep, while the redesigned Dust Cutter II supposedly fits most portable saws on the market. To deal with the captured dust, you can either connect a 1-1/4″ or 2-1/2″ shop vacuum hose, funnel it into a waste bin, or simply collect it in the Dust Cutter and empty it later through the zippered bottom.
You can find the original white Dust Cutter priced around $30, while the black Dust Cutter II runs $40. Expect to pay more with shipping.
