Fury bristle to help with dust collection/extraction
« on: September 06, 2015, 07:54 AM »
Hi all,
A little while back someone posted about using bristles on some bendy sticky backing around the rear of the dropsaw and the sides of a table saw to assist with stopping dust flying everywhere and giving the dust extraction unit more of a chance to collect it.
I have old makita ls1212 dropsaw which funnily enough my local festool dealer says there s only 2 good dropsaws around, the kapex and the ls1212.
Anyway I was thinking of attaching some of these bristles behind the blade to stop the dust flying everywhere.
I have no idea where to find some so any help would be appreciated

Sounds like an old fashioned draught excluder that would be sold on a strip of bendable metal you would screw to a door. Perhaps the bristles wouldn't be long enough though.

I couldn't find the thread about the dustshroud modification for the kapex, (there were a few links in it that mentioned where you could buy the bristles), but I did remember that fastcap offered it too: link to sawstache
