I use this and it works awesome!

Here is the link
It’s 30$ from harbor freight. The hose fits directly into the dust port on my RO sanders without adapters. You can use this vac with bags. While not as good as a hepa filter, I don’t get any noticeable dust blowing out

This vacuum is terrible for anything else, but for sanding it is awesome. It’s very small, very light, and plenty powerful enough. After sanding the only dust left behind needs to be picked up with a tack cloth. If you wipe your hand over the piece it will be clean.

Also I’m not convinced HEPA filters on home owner shop vacs are any better than using bags. I have yet to see a home owner shop vac pass an EPA HEPA test.
