Capture More Than 95% of Dust With Eastwood’s Contour DSB Sanding Block
When you’re restoring or repainting a car, one of the biggest tasks to complete is the initial sanding job. Getting your surface smooth enough for painting takes time, and unfortunately puts out a lot of sanding dust. Luckily, the Eastwood Dustless Sanding Block helps you keep a clean workspace by collecting dust before it settles.

- Flexible sanding blocks
- Center-mounted hose on sanding blocks
- Compatible with 1.25-inch and 1.75-inch vacuum hoses

Eastwood’s Dustless Sanding Block connects to your vacuum hose and shopvac to collect more than 95% of sanding dust while you work. There are three different block sizes— 5-inch, 11-inch, and 16-inch. Each block is slightly flexible, with a foam layer that contours to the bodylines of your workpiece.
Each block features a center-mounted hole for the vacuum hose to ensure level sanding and proper hand placement. The 15-foot vacuum hose is compatible with 1.25-inch and 1.75-inch hoses via the included adapters. If your vacuum hose is another size, you’ll have to provide your own adapter (they’re available at most hardware stores).
Eastwood recommends PSA sandpaper for best results. The brand also offers its own DSB Sandpaper (sold separately) that has holes that align with the sanding block’s holes, which enables better dust collection.
Car restoration isn’t the only application for this sanding tool, either. Eastwood says it’s been tested and used for drywall sanding. Just make sure your sandpaper is on the finer-grit side when sanding to ensure even results.
