Man cutting wood with miter saw sawdust flying everywhere
Sawdust flies in the workshop, but here’s how to collect it quickly with just a wet-dry vacuum, a miter saw and a bicycle inner tube. (DepositPhotos)

I love everything about my wet-dry vacuum, except that I bought it, specifically, for use with my miter saw and discovered that the vacuum hose is too big for the back of the port.

Plastic adapters let you attach the hose to the saw, but I’ll just make one using an old bicycle inner tube.

I took a pair of scissors and just cut a section about 3 or 4 inches long. I’m going to use it to connect the hose to the saw.

You can take the little section of inner tubing and fold back the end — that makes it easier to slip onto the hose.
You then take the other end and put it on the vacuum port.

Now when you hook it up, and you go to make a cut with the saw, all you need to do to collect all that dust is flip on the vacuum.
