If you’ve ever cut concrete then you know what a freaking mess it can be. And even wearing a respirator, concrete dust is no joke. The stuff gets EVERYWHERE! The professional dust collection systems are super expensive but I found a cheaper solution online. Once installed, I can use it with my shop vac. So let’s mess up a brand-spanking new circular saw what do you say.
With hacksaw in hand, I cut a hole in the aluminum housing.
Nothing like voiding the warranty in 5 minutes.
I tapped some machine screws and installed the plastic piece. Then I caulked it up for an air-tight seal.
Now hook up your shop vac and go have some fun.
