The overarm dust collector sucks up just as much dust as the $400 ones. There are dust collection ports off the bottom for collecting the "chips" with the 1 1/2 HP Jet  Dust Dog operated by  handheld remote. The shop vac on the overarm is operated by the remote on the fence.

    Very nice idea for your overarm dust collector! I have been looking at the excalibur for my saw but at $400 + when shipping is included is too much. What did you use for the section for mounting to your table saw?

    Thanks, It's a piece of 2" EMT brazed to a small plate which is then bolted thru the grid on the side extension. There are many ways to get a vertical pipe ..attach to floor, mount on tripod, bolt to rear of table, then to floor. Last one is my preference, I used it on my other TS. Then just use muffler clamps thru a plate to attach the 2 pipes at right angles. It's too simple not to do this.

    Very nice setup.
    What did you use to get both table tops level and joined? Special base or fab one base for both saws?
