I have a Makita B05021 random orbital sander with a rectangular shaped dust bag connection. Anybody know how to retrofit this to attach a vacuum hose? I can’t find any accessories available from Makita?

I’ve just forced the round hose over the square connector and let the air leak. Your going to be pulling better than the bag would have. I do this on Biscuit jointers also.

On your sander you might see if you can get a piece of flex hose that you could form over the rectangle connector.

Another thought…

Seems like I’ve seen a post where someone formed PVC pipe to make an adapter they couldn’t find. If I’m remembering right, they made a wood plug that tapered to the inner shape needed, heated PVC pipe up (be careful of fumes, ventilated area, etc), forced over the plug and let cool. It was a larger adapter but should work for something small with appropriate sized pipe…maybe thin wall if available that small.

Or rig it with tape and pieces of wood to make it more round and shave the corners a bit
