Q:I bought the curiously named "Dust Box Set" for the LS 1016L compound sliding mitre saw and have had GREAT EXPERIENCE with a variety of Makita products. I cannot believe I am unable to find instructions for the use of this device and am quite keen to make a connection with my workshop's high end dust collection apparatus which has 4" soft tubing. I can use adaptors to ratchet down to the size of the plastic opening but do not understand the unusual part that is inside the opening.
Q:Is this Makita's way of making up for putting the miniscule 1-1/4" exhaust chute on what otherwise is a great saw? How about an adapter that would allow for a 2-1/2" connection. Barring that, could you post a photo of the dust box attached to the saw?
Q:I would like to know if the dust box has a portal to which i could attach a 2" dust collection hose. Or, does anyone have an alternate suggestion. I have pulmonary problems so any ideas to reduce dust is welcome. Thanks, West
A:The diameter of the intake opening is 1-5/8".
