I want to go over my dust collection system, and explain some of the tips and tricks that I know of. Dust collection is for a couple reasons. One: to get a lot of the sawdust and chips collected without making a mess over the shop. Two: to try to reduce the amount of dust in the air for you to breath. Wood dust in the air is really bad for your lungs, especially the smaller particles. Also, you can get wood dust allergies, which would be bad if it made it so you couldn’t enjoy your hobby, or how you make your living.
I looked all around online at the different cross cut sleds that people were making. I really liked the Nick Ferry video, his sled really looked awesome, and he explained how to make it really well. I went ahead and purchased his plans as well. You can also check out his plans here: https://nickferry.com/product/table-saw-cross-cut-miter-sled/
