Have a cheapie Mac Allister track saw which is fine for what I want - dust extraction hose connected BUT there's still a massive amount of dust squirting out of the aperture beside the blade.

Has anyone seen a neat fix for this? - I know that Festool has an add-on "door" that you can fit - I guess someting like that?

Back-stop is probably just an old credit card fitted over the hole with duct tape . . . .

Stick some plastic or thin card over the big hole on the side, with sticky tape. That's what I did, worked a treat.
