1. Will it fit my saw?
It will fit most 10 to 12” sliding and chop types of saws as
long as they have dust deflectors as a part of the fence.
What is a dust deflector?
The dust deflector is the curved portion which is a part of the
fence and which is right behind the saw blade and saw housing.
3. How can the Dust Chuter be adaptable to
The kit includes adhesive backed velcro which attaches to the
saw fence dust deflector unit. The bottom of the Dust Chuter
stretches to fit tightly on to the velcro. Velcro is also used
for the top attachment to the saw blade housing, but in many
cases the housings are different. To accommodate these
differences in makes and models, the kit includes flexible and
adjustable lexan adaptors. See instructions for further details.
4. How are the adaptors installed?
Each machine is different and adaptors may require some cutting
and fitting to both sides of the blade housing. Instructions are
included with the Dust Chuter.
5. What happens if I can’t get the dust
chute to fit properly?
Contact us for help using our website email system and send
along some photos if possible. You may also return the unit to
us for a refund of your purchase price.
6. Won’t the blade cut right through the
This will only happen if you do not follow the “Adjust & Cut”
process as described in the instructions. Constant tension on
the rear tension cord is required and must be checked
7. When cutting wood, some sawdust escapes
the dust chute , can I fix this problem?
Try adjusting the side tension cords to see if you can cover
more of the area of the dust path. You might also check the dust
port of the saw to see if sawdust has accumulated there and may
be blocking the evacuation path.
8. Should I use a dust collection system or
shop vac for my vacuum source?
The more suction the better but both should work well. The shop
vac of course makes your saw set up more portable.
9. If there is no place to mount the rear
tension cord blocks, what can I do to ensure that I have tension
on the rear of the dust chute?
Check the instructions and follow the procedure for attaching
the rear tension cord to chop types of saws – attach the rear
tension cord around the pivot base of the saw and be sure to
knot the cord behind the cord lock to prevent the cord from
slipping when under heavy tension.
