Hey I’ve since hooked it up to my Harborfreight dust collector and it works like a charm.

I finally got it to track correctly but it seems to be messing up again. Ugh this is so frustrating.

I know we ve been talking about the conveyor belt, but I just noticed in the first pic you have the dust port necked down for a smaller shop vac connection.

This will work ok for small narrow boards and very light passes on bigger stuff, but if you really want to get the most out of the sander you re going to need a minimum of a bigger shop vac with a 2 1/2” hose or go to a full DC setup with a 4” hose. Even one of the small portable 1 HP blowers will help if you don t have a bigger setup.
