Thanks for the reply. I would have guessed that a pleated filter wouldn’t offer much improvement. Then I read the reviews of the Bosch ROS20VSK random orbit sander. It sounds like it has an internal blower that forces the dust past the filter.
The dust collection on my Dewalt 421 is actually decent. You don’t notice that there is any dust in the air until sunlight shines through the window. That is when I notice all the fine dust hanging in the air. Maybe I’ll try the Bosch. Another option is a 1” pliable hose from The vacuum hose came highly recommended in wood magazine, however when I went to place the order the part did not show up online. Even then, I would have to listen to the screamin’ banshee shop vac. My dust collector is hooked up to my downdraft table, so it’s not available to hook to the sander.
