    I directed mine into a stud cavity with a 6" at the bottom. No collection at the saw port, it just spits into the stud cavity using an old rubber 90 from my dad's old Dewalt RAS..

    Thanks. I also have many long term "temporary" setups...

    I intend to branch off and connect a smaller (probably 2 1/2 inch line) to the saw port and a larger line to a shroud that I'll be making to cover the area near the bottom of the saw. My dilemma is the size of the line going to my home made shroud. I know that a full 6 inch line will give me more CFM and a 4 inch line will give me more velocity. I'm not sure which will work better in this application and am looking for advice/comments. Sorry if this topic has been covered before; I have read a lot of threads on miter saw dust collection already.
    John, is this saw the Glide saw? I made a shroud that captures near enough to everything for my Glider and can post pics if needed.

    Everything I like is either illegal, immoral or fattening

    Chris, yes, this is the Bosch 12" glide saw. It replaced my DeWalt DWS780 when I needed more room. I'd love to see some pics of your shroud.
