Probably been asked many times before but, what dust extractor should I get for my new Record BS300E bandsaw? I know Record do a specific on for this saw but are there any alternatives that you would recommend? Perhaps some are just as good and maybe cheaper but would they come with the right size extractor vent tube/pipe?

Appreciate any comments or advice.

Got a bs350 and even with a dx1000 hooked up it's pretty woeful. I now have the dx1000 running on the 100mm bottom port but also a shopvac running a hose at the lower guides and secured with magnets to the table. That gets the majority of the dust.. Its a pain having two extractors running but I have them both on the same remote to make it simpler. Most bandsaws seem to have the same issue with extraction.
