The Saw Hood was designed by a general contractor to eliminate the catastrophic dust problem created by miter saws. It sets up in seconds and contains 95% of the dust. You will be amazed at how effective this product is.
The Saw Hood Pro is identical in function to the Saw Hood but is made out of spring steel so it can fit into a compact bag. If space is an issue, this is the tool for you.
The Shop Saw Hood is the new rigid hood that fits on any miter box saw in a fixed location. It’s rugged and effective, the perfect application for capturing all the dust in a production environment or home shop. The panels come packed flat and take just minutes to assemble and install. Its easily customizable width makes it fit perfectly on any and every saw. We provide the side panels, all you need to provide is (3)1”x3” boards cut to your desired Saw Hood width. Cut the backing to 48” long and the same width as the 1”x3” pieces, with a thickness up to 1/4” of either plexiglass, laminate or signboard to create the curved hood.
The Saw Hoodie is our latest generation of saw hoods to effectively address the difficult problem of dust collection on miter box saws. It’s super small and compact and works best on smaller 8-inch saws but can work on larger 10 and 12-inch saws as well. It’s designed specifically for quick and minimal setup and takedown on job sites. Its super flexible metal spring ring design allows this hoodie to spring open and mount into the accessory holes on your saw. There is even a vacuum hose hole in the back that allows you to attach a shop vacuum for added dust collection.
WARNING! This product could expose you to chemicals including di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate which are known to the state of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.

The sawhood is not made of flame resistant material. Use extreme care with metal sparks going into the sawhood.
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.
