    Saw Guard / Dust collector clones?

    I am looking for something like the SawStop guard and dust collector.

    Of course I have a PM 66, which does not have a riving knife, so the mounting would be different.

    Has anyone stumbled upon a similar guard/collector which might be more generic, and less pricey? I just need the plastic part, as I am fabricating a metal overarm myself.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the pointer. There is at least one youtube video showing the build of that.

    I'm still looking, though.

    Charlie (of the segmented vase fame) has a simple inverted funnel sort of thing over his blade. Perhaps he'll be generous enough to share a picture of it.

    Re: Saw Guard / Dust collector clones?

    For a DC look at the Harbor Fright model. I have several local woodworkers who use this. Some have had the unit for several years no complaints. I will buy one when I have purchased other stuff for the shop. The 1st thing I'll do is install a Thien filter in it. This seems to be the best I can do for around $200.

    Just a note for anyone looking - Harbor Freight has a sale this weekend and I received a coupon for the dust collector - Normally $199.99 - with the coupon (20630303) it is $169.99.
