I don't think I could improve the design
By John Ipock from Moore, Oklahoma on August 16, 2012
I have wanted an overhead dust collection setup for a very long time. When you are cutting particle board, it's great. When you are cutting laminate, having something over the blade to hold the laminate down is also very nice (if they called it a laminate hold down device, they would probly sell more of them!) BUT lately I have had a couple of jobs involving FRP (basically fiberglass panelling) That justified finally buying one of these no doubt about it. For the most part I could cut it on my Holzher panel saw, but some had to be done on the table saw and having overhead dust collection makes it MUCH more pleasant. I had to do somewhat of a "custom" installation of this item as I was mounting it over a "large" cabinet saw with permanent surrounding tables and a overlength fence, but even at that, it was a easy install and being able to remove the mast from the "mount" is a big plus. The design of how the "above the blade" part of this unit pivots works very smoothly, unlike some of the others I have used (the big name, you know who I'm talking about) This model is reasonably well made, does a good job, and easilly swings out of the way when neaded. Mine was missing one bolt what made up the "stop" for the boom pivot, but that was easilly cured. Other than that I added an acorn nut to the "boom clamp" that locks it into the operating position as it only had what amounted to the threaded end of a bolt to make contact at the pivot point and that just didn't work smooth enough for me. Basically just a tiny bit of tweeking to get it all "just right" If your not capable of performing some of these type of adjustments (which are to be expected) then you probly shouldn't be using a tablesaw to begin with. I did not find any issues with this item that I would consider "major" It's a descent setup and does what I need. Time and lots of use will tell, but I did quite a lot of research before purchasing this one and everyone else seemed to be happy with theirs (for the most part) They are all kind of expensive, but the time it would take to build the same thing myself would have cost me much, much more. I have no regret on this purchase.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
