Has anyone seen any news or anything coming out from any of the cordless tools ---- that will be of a cordless drill/ dust containment variant that is built into it. Similar to the add-ons for SDS cordless variants but for a regular cordless drill .

Just short of a helper holding a hose

I've got a application where I'll be drilling holes in sheetrock and wanted to contain the dust

Otherwise, I might just buy this Makita adapter and cobble up parts to make the hose work with either the Turbo II or Festool I have

I have reservations on any Makita (dust) . Have one of the concrete planers. The brushes/shround on that thing is like 1/8 fuzzy suede that is just complete rubbish..

They have them for cutting speaker holes.



Anything smaller hold a vac with one hand and the drill with the other.

That's how I roll:

That is one beefy mount. I've sorta settled in on the Chief fixed or Thinnstalls articulating and never looked back
Buy Premiere and you will never touch another Chief I promise! I think Chief are my least favorite mount for the money.

So what are you anchoring?

Those I mount hundreds of, if you can't make any dust what so ever put a bead of silicone on the back plate and use a couple drywall screws to hold it in place...not one spec of dust. Most of my large wifi jobs are in drop ceiling so I use machine screws and just poke them through the tile and fender washer the back.

I've got the DeWalt version that I literally never use if interested.

Hi Gator -

I believe the circumference should be similar/closer in size to the bit size you are working with in order to be most effective.

WHAT I would find interesting if there was a test shootout between the dewalt, makita, hilti, bosch (vac accessory + effectiveness). Of SDS+, MAX drill bit and maybe 2 core test of 2 1/2 and 4"
