Introducing the attachment that will save you HOURS of cleanup. Without modification the Central Machinery 4"x36" belt and disk sander is almost unusable because of the amount of sawdust it kicks off. To solve this problem, we designed a small attachment that allows you to connect a ShopVac or other wet/dry vacuum up to your belt sander. The end of this attachment has a 54mm OD and a 45mm ID universal fitting which fits most wet/dry vacuums. Now, all of the sawdust just gets sucked up the the ShopVac like a mini sawdust collection system. The larger hole attaches to the sawdust collector on the belt sander, while the bent elbow at the top of the attachment connects to a 3/4" ID flexible tube which in turn connects to the bottom disk sander guard, allowing you to collect all of the sawdust.

Note: If you would like a custom ID and OD or any other custom feature, just leave a note with your purchase with the proper information! Our high precision 3D printers are accurate within +-0.1mm.
You will need to purchase some 3/4" ID tubing to connect one end of the attachment to the disk sander if you want to collect disk sanding dust.
The version you will receive is an updated version (v1.3) It has two small ventilation holes on the side which are necessary to slightly reduce suction so your vacuum doesn't cause the belt to rub.
