great product
this unit does not fit my dewalt 12 in sliding saw as good as i would have liked it to, you have to take out the hold down clamp to install it in that hole, other than that it does a great job of collecting the dust, i would say it gets about 95 percent of the dust, i would have liked a vacume port in it, but it is fairly easy to empty the dust out of the shield,for the price, it is a great help in keeping the shop clean.

When I ordered the hood I sent my miter saw blade out for sharpening. I just got it back on Wednesday and have yet to use the chop saw. I have no reason to believe it will not function as advertised. However, if it doesn't.................

First, over the many years that I have purchased your
Products, I have always been more than satisfied.
Concerning the Chopshop Saw Hood, Al Wolford was very kind to email directions to me to help me install it( if I make it to the 28th of this month I will be 93). However before my son was able to help me it was erased. Help! R Some

I want to be able to use my chopsaw inside my home and also to be able to protect the saw outdoors in inclement weather.
myron k on Apr 14, 2015
A Chop Saw or Sliding Miter saw is the dirtiest tool in the work shop. It covers up everything with saw dust and it is<br />next to impossible to contain this dust. This appears to be one of the best ways to collect a lot of the waste and it is portable with the saw.
Stephen P on Apr 13, 2015
Sawdust from my compound mitre saw has been a real challenge to contain. This looked to be the best solution that I have seen so far.

How much space is required behind the fence for the hood ?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 30"
Can this be used if using a Dewalt miter saw stand?
Bob F on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have the ChopShop hood with a Makita compound miter saw mounted on a Dewalt saw stand. It works fine except when I am cutting at a 45 degree angle. Then I have to temporarily pull out one of the hood supports. Not a big inconvenience and the hood still works and the support is easily reinstalled when I have made my cuts. I recommend the ChopShop saw hood for miter saw dust control.
Wiil it work for cutting steel studs and what about sparks?
stephanie k on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The hood material is nylon and I would not use this hood for. Utting steel studs that will probably be hiot when they come off. The nylon will be easily damaged by hot sparks and stud cutoffs and could catch fire.
Can I easily attach it to my homemade wood and plywood saw table? I have a ten inch hitachi.
Jeffrey P on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I attached mine to a DeWalt chop saw. I believe most chop saws have the necessary holes where the posts on the hood slud into to support the hood. If not, you could drill the appropriate holes.

Will this miter saw dust hood work with my Harbor Freight 12" dbl. bevel sliding compound miter saw?
tootall on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use the chopsaw hood with a craftsman 10" dbl bevel sliding saw with no problems. There is plenty room on each side of the saw. I am pretty sure that a 12" saw will be just fine.
