I would like to share with you some very simple improvement that results in virtually no dust sanding and also saves some time and money.
Most of the sanders come with dust collection (DC) holes at the bottom and you have to buy special sanding papers that fits the holes or, to drill them yourself.
Even with the DC holes, the dust collection is not “something to write home about”
So, I got tired of it and decided…... “Modify”...
First, I cut the pad from the holes line (actually, I changed the pad to narrower one), leaving the holes totally exposed.
With this arrangement, I take an A4 sheet and cut it to 4 so I get 4 strips of 2-3/4” width that I just clamp to the sander (no holes).
When you are sanding, hold the sander in an angle along the sanding line and you will get “zero dust” sanding.
