Details of ISSUE or REQUEST (Please be as specific as possible):
The table saw has been spitting a lot of sawdust lately, so yesterday I checked the back while cleaning and a lot of dust has been collecting in the vacuum output tube leading off of it. I ran the vacuum pump and it looks like there is a clog somewhere in the PVC along the wall. At the very least, there’s not much suction reaching the table saw.

Please remember that VOLUNTEERS will be helping to resolve this issue. While everyone works very hard to fix things quickly, sometimes things take time. Please consider volunteering to help keep everything working well at our space!
