I already purchased Magna Sand and Kleen MT 800 J Hand Sander System which has a bucket with water to catch the dust but it uses the abrasive screen and for rough sanding it works fine but when trying to finish sand it leaves scratch marks. I was looking for a sanding sponge to do the finish sanding before painting and the Vacuu-Sponge Dustless Drywall Sander, drywall tool is exactly what I needed. It has a smaller diameter hose but I was able to use duct tape to make a good seal to connect it to the hose going to the bucket. I sanded part of a wall and had no dust anywhere but in the bucket. It is fantastic! You can connect directly to the shop vac but then your filter will get clogged and need cleaning frequently. I have a small shop vac but the larger one has better suction, it's so good that it will hold the sponge to the wall. I highly recommend the Vacuu-Sponge!
I received the SANDLUTIONS Vacuu-Sponge dustless drywall sander in the mail, it fits right in my mailbox! I was happy to get it very quickly as I had a craft project that I badly needed it for! I was hoping it would do exactly what it claimed to do because I sand plastic resin. When you sand plastics, you get a fine dust or mist in the air and I am SURE that its bad for you to breath it into your sinus cavities and your lungs! SO I was really needing a device that would SAVE me from this bad and possibly toxic dust in the air! I unpacked it and was a little disappointed not to find directions for use or other info on buying replacement sanding pads etc. but, I suppose all these can easily be found on their website or here on Amazon- Anyway, I unpacked it and hurriedly went to my downstairs shop to give it a try! I connected it easily to my shop vac hose, turned on the vac and started in on sanding my project. Before I started, I was skeptical because the dust was so fine, BUT to my amazement 99% of the dust was collected and eliminated by the SANDLUTIONS Vacuu-Sponge! The pad sanded my plastic resin with ease, it looked great, much better and faster then the 3M sandpaper that I usually buy! No more dust in my nose and lungs and all over my workbench and floor, this product really saves me time on clean up! I love this item and when I use up the Other side of this sponge, I will order more! Thanks SANDLUTIONS Vacuu-Sponge for a great product to save my health and save me time in unnecessary clean up! Fives Stars and a way thumbs up!
