Miter Saw Dust Shroud Muskego WI

Miter saws are a great convenience, but they spread sawdust like a sprinkler spreads water. The new Downdrafter shroud from Rousseau, $200, combined with a dust collector, acts like a parachute behind the saw and grabs almost every bit of dust. You may cringe at the price, but some good engineering is at work here.

Miter Saw Dust Shroud

Miter Saw Dust Shroud



Miter saws are a great convenience, but they spread sawdust like a sprinkler spreads water. The new Downdrafter shroud from Rousseau, $200, combined with a dust collector, acts like a parachute behind the saw and grabs almost every bit of dust. You may cringe at the price, but some good engineering is at work here. The shroud is mounted on a sliding track and a pivot so, no matter what angle the saw is set at, you can position the shroud in the high sawdust traffic area. The dust collector creates a down draft through the port in the bottom of the shroud and dust disappears. Without the slide and pivot, it would take a shroud the size of a garage to capture dust at every angle a miter saw can cut.The shroud is deep enough to accommodate sliding saws and large enough to surround even the biggest miter saws. A shop vacuum provides some dust collection, but this unit works best when used with a dust collector.
