SCMS dust collection

I am re-arranging my two-car garage workshop to clear enough space to actually park two cars. This means moving my sliding compound miter saw against a wall. To that end, I'm planning to replace my old Bosch 10 sliding miter saw with a Bosch GCM12SD Dual Bevel Glide ( ), the only saw I know of that can operate right up against a wall.

The machine has a 1 1/2" dust control port that can hook up to my shop vac, but reviews suggest that it is at best 60% effective. I am thinking of building a 6" deep x 30" wide box behind the saw with something like a 4" register box ( ) at the bottom connected to my Oneida Mini Gorilla.

Has anyone done something similar? How did it work out?

Any other ideas?

Something I made is close ...

I needed dust collection fro my RAS, so I made a small box behind the fence with a dust port for a shop vac hose underneath, This combined with the blade shroud dust port makes it fairly dust free.

I eventually added a separate, smaller shop vac for the blade shroud:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
