Dust collection is an important part of any woodworking shop. The table saw is notorious for creating a lot of dust in the shop and is a machine that needs some extra attention. A lot of the newer table saw models have some good built-in dust collection features but saws that are a little older don't have these features. This video shows how to make 4 different dust collection upgrades to a Delta contractors saw. The upgrades can be applied to just about any style of table saw though to improve your dust collection.
The upgrades shown include a dust tray in the bottom of the saw, enclosure panel on the back of the saw, custom cut foam to seal smaller openings, and a shop-built overarm dust collector.
