Is there a vacuum adapter for the Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander?

If there is, what is the PN and the cost. Thanks
Asked by: YSU65
HD sells a universal adapter which will adapt your 2" home down to this size. It is a multi adapter which you could cut at specific sections for use with specific diameters. I have purchased one in the past and cut it down for a different too, but i havent purchased one to cut down for this. Seems the shop vac's companies would include these types of adapters with their shop vac's, but they dont. Actually it is sad there just couldnt be an industry wide standard size for these smaller power tools, one adapter fits all type of thing.

1/3 Corded Sheet Finishing Sander is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 76.

I chose the Makita and it was delivered the next day to my house. I put it together and started using it the next day with 80 grit paper I already had. The hole punch provided fits perfectly and made excellent holes for the suction bag to collect. It is light weight and well balanced and takes off material effortlessly. The sand paper is lasting a long time as well. I'm extremely pleased with it and am looking forward to many projects to come, Thanks.

Size and feel are similar but Makita has variable speed with speed lock and can clamp the sandpaper at the ends or use velcro attachment. Less vibration to your hard, more noticeable with longer use. Had it about a month and overall a nice step up.

I bought the Makita 1/3 sheet sander to allow two of us to sand at the same time on a home floor project. It has performed well and is quieter than my Craftsman sander. Both of them leave quite a bit of dust that is not collected but the dust collection has never been great on this type of sander. The sandpaper can be changed quickly unless you decide to punch the holes for the dust collection to work better, (which II did not notice when doing so). Have only used it a few times , but it appears well made and I expect it to last for years, and would highly recommend it.

Not high-powered, but reliable and durable enough for me to sand my living room floor prior to refinishing. Note that dust is only captured in the bag only if you use the puncturing template on your sandpaper, or if you attach a vacuum hose to the bag. This may be the sander that makes me let go of my 60s-vintage Craftsman sander.
