Can I use this to sand lead paint on exterior of house and can I hook it up it up to wet and dry vac?
Asked by: rick48
Yes, you can. You need the vacuum hose adapter--$5 plus $7 shipping. And you'll need a good respirator. The sander's dust bag will be useless for this operation. And you might want to use a drop cloth on the ground to catch the mess you will make. And don't grow vegetables there either!

You can't. You need a different sander

8 Amp 3 in. x 21 in. Belt Sander is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 199.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good when not broken I own a small furniture business and we have about 6 of these sanders, but only about 2-3 that work at any given time. I have returned and exchanged at least half a dozen of these. We use them on a daily basis but they do not get constant use, usually an hour or two a day. Here is what has gone out on these, from most frequent to least. -Motors spark and lose power, blowing them out helps some times but not always, eventually they just stop -Triggers go bad, we've taken them apart, replaced or repaired them -Belts break, internal rubber one, so motor spins but roller does not When working, they are great! but on average we usually get about 3 months out of one, I started dating them to keep track. I invested in a few of them early on, and have been exchanging them if it went bad, but they no longer want to take them back. I also figured maybe it was a couple duds that I got, but not the case. These are truly not reliable and a waste of money. I will be trying the makita ones in hopes for more longevity.

The first thing I noticed is that it is noticeably heavier than my previous sander. For most sanding it probably won't matter but I was trying to square up the ends on some 1 x 3's and ended up sanding way too much off one end. I think it was just the awkwardness of the added weigh the speed of the belt that made fine control a bit difficult. My previous sander also had the exhaust coming out the back so it was easier to lay it upside down on a bench and use it like a table sander. All in all it seems like a good quality product. I'm just going to have to get used to the different design and weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sander For anyone wondering how to hook up a vacuum with a 2" hose diameter to this thing, here's the easiest fix I found. Use one of these couplings: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Proflex-2-in-x-1-1-2-in-Neoprene-Shielded-Coupling-P3001-215/100133080 For the tool end, use a PVC elbow. The coupling is made of rubber and fits snug and perfect on the elbow. The coupling can be tightened a little on the hose end so the hose fits snug. To get the elbow to fit perfectly on the sander just heat the end of the elbow with a heat gun and push it into the sander exhaust port when it softens a little. Wait a few minutes until it cools and you're all set.

Been using for about 2 hours and the other reviews are right, the dust collector needs work. It shoots sawdust onto your forward hand and into your face. I have tried tying it closed but doesnt stop it. Next I will try to tie a piece of fabric around it to try to block it. Other than that I like the sander. Shouldn’t be hard to redesign and stop the problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Porter Cable belt sander just ok! the sander itself is built very well but whoever engineered this is an idiot! the dust collector doesn't even work correctly it blows dust in your face the entire time you're using it! the dust bag doesn't even seal all the way around the clamp so dust just comes pouring out of the hole in the bag which in terms blows it in your face!

It performed well until it broke. The dust bag also has an open portion of the seal that blows dust right in your face. After reading all the reviews, I expected better performance.
