Ya, you're all asking why, aren't you.

Air in equals air out. 130 CFM in is 130 CFM out. A pretty powerful stream of air comes out the opposite side of the vacuum when it's operating. Blows the dust around, the dust I'm trying to collect. Looked for a filter with 1 1/4" opening and this fit the ticket. It doesn't restrict air flow that much, maybe a couple 10ths of a percent, if that. And the stream of air is dissipated extremely well.
Needs one of these now

Got a new 716xps. Put the spinners and stereo in it. Bosch big gulp dust collection, infinity zero clearance, ez fence, Amana blade. More money in accessories than what the saw cost.

Does that fence impede the dust collection?

Got a blacklader vest today for 25 bucks. It's an XL but it will be fine for shop work. I really like it.

I too am interested.

I know theoretically it shouldn't because it's a strict downward motion but seems like it could cause some effect on the dust collection.

I'm getting closer to going with a fixed 12". Although I did see the new Makita 10" slider today and a guy I was talking to said he is going to sell his kapex and keep the new Makita. He said with the large dust boot dust collection it is camparable to the kapex. I never really looked at the makitas until this guy was raving about it and he does a lot of stuff with ipe.

I'm kinda moving away from festool as far as their saws go. The other companies are just catching up nowadays and if you're going to go all out just buy mafell.

I love my Makita front rail slider. My guys love it too.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I didn't find it to impede any dust collection. If it did you could always open them up slightly. I hooked it all up today and was shocked at how much dust it collected. Felt like a kapex. I will try and remember to take a video of it tomorrow.
