Title: Hood for a 12in Drop Saw
Post by: prairiedog41 on August 08, 2011, 09:33:08 pm
Is anyone aware of or have seen, a hood or cover for a drop saw.  I have a 12in Spartan drop saw and living in Puget Sound one cannot always (more like rarely during the winter months) saw outside due to the weather.  Therefore, I saw in a smaller space under the carport but, the saw likes to spray oil in different directions depending on the shape of the rock.  So I am trying to find a workable design for a hood that can be built out of maybe lexan, that would give me some visibility of the saw without soaking everything around it in oil.
Any drawings, photos, or just plain leads or ideas toward something would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
