I love you.........You love me........We're a happy family

Here's the vacuum diffuser I use when sanding finishes on my RS400.  I found that the turtle is still too high of suction on the RS400 for fine finishes where you want the sander to gently glide on the surface. 

I tried reducing the size of the intake but found it puts an unnecessary load on the motor.  Then I was looking at PVC  T fittings and could not find a right fit.  So one morning my little one was enjoying a fresh cup of Barney cup milk when curiousity hit me and the rest is history. 

I can now feel with the sander as if it was not connected to a vacuum at all yet there's no dust.

The bitterness of poor quality, lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten.
