I have a Craftsman table saw, model # 137.218250. If you look underneath the
saw, the blade housing, which
is on one side of the blade, has threaded holes in it, as if to accept a plate
that would enclose the bottom of the blade and create a hose connection
for a dust collector. I can't get any information from Sears about the
of such an accessory, and am checking here to see if anybody might have
any experience with this issue.
Yeah, and that plate is a real bitch to make from scratch. I'd try their
parts department maybe. I didn't actually look at what your model number
is and see what kind of saw that is. You described mine, so I'm assuming
yours and mine are the same vintage. Mine is a last year's model. The new
ones are completely different in nearly every respect. I imagine they
don't sell these little plates out of the stores anymore.
I bought mine at the store for about $30. It does help some. Add a zero
clearance insert, and it cuts the dust way down. It doesn't get it all,

Thanks for the reply - You're saying you
do have a dust collector hooked up to
yours? Guess I'll keep an eye open for
some "readymade" object I can modify
for the job, except you need that hose
