  • Makita 5" ROS and shop vac

    I have a Makita BO5041K random orbital sander. It has a small vacuum port for the dust bag. Are there any attachments to fit this to a shop vac for occasional sanding work. The port is smaller than the 2 1/2 to 1 1/4 inch converters that I have seen. Thanks.

    Try wrapping some electrical tape around the outside of the dust port until you build it up so that it fits into the 1ΒΌ" end of your adapter.
    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
