M18 Random Orbital Sander Vacuum Adapters

Milwaukee M18 Random Orbital Sander Direct Hose Adapter

Description

I have posted several adapters to connect to the dust post of the Milwaukee M18 Random Orbital Sander (model 2648-20). These adapters were created in Fusion 360, so unfortunately I cannot share any useful models.

I have included 3 different STL files:

Instructions

To attach these adapters to the M18 compact vacuum hose, you need to remove the nozzle. The hose is left-handed, which means the wire is wound in a left-handed direction, opposite of the normal right-hand direction that you are used to with most threads.

M18 Compact Vacuum Hose Nozzle

To remove the nozzle, turn it clockwise until the glue breaks, then the nozzle will screw off. Then screw the new adapter onto the hose counter-clockwise.
