    Tablesaw dust collection hood

    Thread Starter: Carl Beckett

    Well, after a weekend working with black walnut I have GOT to improve my tablesaw dust collection. Which means time to put the blade guard/collection hood at the top of the project list.

    How many people here own a Festool Domino?
