>Barry I plan to add the brush over the wheel I just haven't had the time yet. The hose angle could be part of the problem but I think it won't solve very much. I think possibly a hose attached to the upper blade guide. Of course that means splitting the air so less volume below.

I have a contractors table saw but I find that a large amount of the dust comes from above the blade. I thought it might be blade alignment but I worked on that and it must be something else. I've sealed off as much of the bottom as I can. There's still a large hole where the saw tilts. I'm sure I lose a lot of vacuum through that.
