While drum sanding a project yesterday, my pet peeve about drum sanders reared its head: that the dust port is on top of the door. There's no good place to put the hose. You put it over the carriage housing and it'll fall off changing the height knob or fall the other way and pop open the door to the drum, which sends dust in hundreds of directions (all towards your face).
I recently added a number of circuits to my garage shop specifically because I rarely used my drum sander... it needed to be plugged in the family room via extension to use the DC unit with it. Now I needed to address the lack of decent DC connection.
Note that the top of my Performax 16-32, I put a Dust Right compatible connector. The new hose I added also has a Dust Right handle since it will be handy for the floor cleaning attachment as well.
Now, my drum sander is very convenient to use; it'll touch every project here on out.
