The biggest problem with sanding is the dust, the mess, and the subsequent contaminating your surface when applying a finish.
So whether it’s for health reasons of just a kick ass finish on your project, reducing dust in your shop is important.
Dust collection, shop air filtration and collecting sanding dust at the source are all part of a team that you should be trying to get on.
Connecting a powerful vacuum motor to sanding equipment is one simple way
In my shop I use a DEWALT D27905 Dust Extractor Vacuum for several reasons; the power tool actuation which turns on the vacuum when you turn on your sander and keep the vacuum on 15 seconds after the sander is turned off and the 3 microns filter which has a 99.97% efficiency when equipped with a HEPA filter.
