Keep­ing my sawbench clean has been much eas­ier thanks to a short length of half-round PVC gut­ter­ing. I mounted gut­ter brack­ets at one end of the ta­ble to hold the gut­ter loosely. Saw­dust and other mess can be eas­ily swept into the gut­ter, which tips – with­out spilling – into the bin.

Sec­ondly, I al­ways use a sac­ri­fi­cial board on top of the saw bed. I move it side­ways slightly to prevent bur­ring on the un­der­side if I want a clean cut. The Per­spex pointer (pic­tured) is used to level the bed. It fits on in place of the blade.
