ChopShop Saw Hood
The Saw Hood Pro is identical in function to the Saw Hood but is made out of a spring steel so it can fit into a compact bag. If space is an issue, this is the tool for you.
Will the ChopShop Saw Hood attach to any saw/stand combo?
The ChopShop Saw Hood is adjustable and works with 99% of saws. The stand you use should not matter. As long as the saw has accessory holes on the back side, you should be able to mount either ChopShop Saw Hood.
Can a large vac hose port be put in the bottom instead of the larger hole to create some negative pressure?
Yes – absolutely! There is a Velcro opening that will easily hold a vacuum hose into the bottom – we actually do it all the time in our shop! The Sawhood PRO has a drawstring hole that will allow the same thing to be done as well!
Will this work with wet saws for stone cutting?
Yes, it will! You will probably need the SawHood Tile Clamp in order to attach it, as most of those saws don’t have accessory mounting holes!
Is there anything available to help with PVC or composite decking debris? I’ve tried static guard and vacuuming as I go but nothing really helps!
Unfortunately, this is a big issue with composite and PVC decking. We are soon going to be coming out with a new saw hood which is wood and corrugated plastic and should work better for this, but it will not be easily transportable to job sites, it's more of a home-shop saw hood.
For the standard saw hood, an antistatic spray is helpful, but it doesn’t last very long, and repeated coatings throughout the job are necessary and become expensive and time-consuming. Soaking the saw hood in water might actually help quite a bit, and be cheaper than antistatic spray and id maybe give it a try, but the only way I know for sure to help is really to set up a coolant system on the cut itself, something like you would have on a CNC machine, or on a tile saw. Grizzly does make some stand-alone coolant systems that could be set up on a job site, but I'm not sure if they will prove enough flow, and also you are going to end up with a mess down in the throat of your saw and all over the ground.
