Collect that last bit of dust from your DeWALT miter saw while enjoying safer, cleaner cuts!

This replacement throat plate for DeWALT DW716 & DW716XPS miter saws features a unique dust shroud that attaches to the bottom side of the throat plate to redirect the dust that falls below the table, sending it back to the dust collection where it belongs.

It also features a replaceable, zero-clearance insert for safer, cleaner miter cuts. The replaceable insert slides in or out from the front of the saw without the need to remove the throat plate.

NOT INTENDED FOR BEVEL CUTS! The throat plate and dust shroud are intended to be used with the blade at 90 degrees to the table. You can enjoy dust-free, quality cuts at any miter angle your saw was designed to make, but bevel cuts will destroy the dust shroud and may damage the throat plate as well.

WORKS WITH THIN & FULL KERF BLADES! Designed with just the right amount of clearance to account with the flex that can happen when not pulling perfectly straight down on the handle.

DOES NOT FIT THE DEWALT DWS716 OR DWS716XPS! The "DW" and "DWS" saws share a lot in common, but their working geometry makes them just different enough that this dust collection throat plate isn't interchangeable between the two. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO DOUBLE CHECK WHICH SAW MODEL YOU HAVE BEFORE ORDERING! (Model numbers can be found on the top side of the motor.)


This purchase includes (1) dust collection throat plate, (1) replaceable insert and (1) dust shroud. Insert comes preinstalled in the throat plate, dust shroud needs to be glued to the throat plate with cyanoacrylate glue ("super glue") via the alignment tabs. A VIDEO can be seen HERE for further information and instructions.

couldn't be happier

It works and fit is spot on

Nice add for my older DeWalt 705.

I ordered both the dust apron and table insert.
Took a chance to see if the apron would work to catch more dust on my 705.
Unfortunately I was not able to get the material to work on this model
and did not want to try cutting it to fit so I could return it.
The deck insert worked with a slight sanding on the one end to fit the slot corners better.
I also enlarged the screw holes slightly for the screws on this machine.
Once I had it installed I took a piece of wood and ran the saw down into it.
Unfortunately the blade must drop a bit more than the 716 model as mine cut through the bottom of the trough about 3/16" and at the rear where the bevel is. A slight modification of the trough shape and it would work perfectly.
The fact that the insert is replaceable is a plus!
I took some pics if interested.

Great product

I ordered the dust boot, plastic mount and the zero clearance insert for my DW716. Watch the YouTube video for installation hints. I added washers to the screws holding the silicone shroud in place. Major improvement over the big gulp vacuum hoot it replaced. Also works with the vertical zero clearance boards I mounted to the fence.
