i have been building a storage cabinet for under the table saw wing. it will house the extra fence, saw blades and other table saw accessories.
i removed the dust collector that came with my disk sander and re made the cover plate that it attached to out of plywood. i then attached a 6 inch blast gate to a 6 inch hole in this new piece of plywood. this blast gate is now attached to the dust collection system. this set up pulls a lot more air and a lot more dust.
the old setup can be seen here
