    Default Makita MLT100 table saw

    Does anyone have one of these?
    Even with a shop vac hooked up to the dust port it still collects a lof of dust inside.
    The bottom panel appears to be cosmetic rather than structural, so I'm thinking of removing it to aid dust removal - has anyone done this?
    Also, behind the push stick hanger is a round panel that comes off via a single nut but there's just another panel behind it - anyone know what this is for?

    Where I volunteer we have one that's hooked up to a 100mm flexi to a DC, this set up doesn't quite manage to get all the sawdust. So I doubt that your shop vac would do much at all.
    The bottom panel would be to keep fingers out of harms way, if the machine is set up on a stand.
    We have ours set up on a specialy made bench, on castors, with a 50mm deep drawer under the slotted bottom panel, this drawer fills in about 2 hours with the DC going.
    I'd have to have a look on Tuesday, to see what you're talking about. Our push stick, stays on the sawbench table, so that there's no excuse not to use it.

    I don't use the push stick stand, and I don't like plastic push sticks so the first thing I did was screw together 4 bits of 6mm mdf I had lying around, use the plastic one as a template and bang out four on the scroll saw.
