    This is the correct sequence:

    1) Order new equipment
    2) Figure out where it will fit...

    Thought I'd post some pics of the unloading process in case it helps anyone:

    The pallet as it arrived:

    unpacked:

    put the wheels on by levering it up, get a buddy:

    build a ramp:

    wheel it to the shop:

    build another ramp:

    boom:

    Step one has been figuring out dust collection for the shroud.

    My friend 3D printed me an adapter:

    He's working on printing it as all once piece to go 50mm to 4"

    Split my 6" line into a 5" and 4" with two blast gates:

    Unfortunately too much suction pulls on the shroud:

    My temp solution while I figure out what to do it to keep screwing pieces of scrap together until its straight:

    Seems to be working but is really pulling hard on the shroud, but at this point its keeping the riving knife roughly where it should be. You can see how its keeping the shroud elevated.

    If you can, drop your hose to the shroud straight down from the ceiling/overhead arm. It will take the pressure off the shroud and allow
    it to work properly. My whole shroud is mounted from overhead instead of on the riving knife and I find it vastly better. I can even
    keep the guard in place for non thru cuts.

    I know you're going to really enjoy having the short stroke saw.

    Congrats on the new saw and getting it in the shop!

    Not sure I'd put the weight, etc., of that 4" hose on the blade guard collection unless it was a separate overarm setup. It's not going to add in a "yuge" way to the performance due to the nature of that guard. So I'd stick with a smaller hose for that specific setup, such as the native 50mm/2".

    I'd like to figure out a floating version. Something like this Harvey but not $900: https://www.harveywoodworking.com/pr...overhead-guard

    Seems like I could figure out a way to DIY that with a different shroud.

    Lisa did you buy a different one?

    I discovered the would of uni-strut, I think I'm definitely going to make something myself attached to my wall.

    https://www.thesharkguard.com/produc...tarted-it-all/

    $240 for that guard plus $60 for the mount. Then the cost of uni-strut which I need to add up but probably another $300. That's getting awful close to the cost of the Harvey.
