To better control the dust in his shop, Club member Raymond Lindeman of Paynesville, Minnesota, crafted this vacuum adapter for his sander. He cut the basic shape from a scrap of pine on his band saw and then used a 1-in.-dia. Forstner bit to create the main hole on one end that allows him to attach the hose from his shop vacuum. Finally, he used a 3/8-in. wood bit to drill a series of holes for the oval opening at the other end.
