Hi Paul,

This method works very well.  The concept is simple - you need to put the collection mouth directly where the sawdust is generated.  The blade creates and ejects the sawdust right out the back of the blade, so it make sense to position the collector there.  The collector is made from shop vac parts and bolts onto the saw in place of the original 1-1/4 hose outlet.  You can see in the first photo that the collector mouth is connected to a 4 inch flex hose about 6 inches up.  I have this connected to my central dust collector, and the performance is excellent.

The only problem with a collector this size is that you sacrifice some range in beveling.  I don't have any problem with miter cuts - I retain the full capability of the saw, but when I tilt the head for beveling, I don't have the full range.

How well does this work for you? Is that a shop vacuum accessory? Do you use it in conjunction with the stock collection port/bag? Dust from SCMS's is tough to collect; this looks like an interesting approach.
