I got a dustless drywall sander from Home Depot many years ago.

It's a five gallon bucket with a lid. You fill the bucket about a third of the way with water and attach the lid.

The lid has two ports: one goes to the sanding attachment hose, the other to a shop vac.

In theory, the shop vac draws the dust through the sanding hose and into the bucket. The dust then settles into the water.

It works pretty well.

You still get some dust, but not nearly as much as you would dry sanding.

The sanding pad uses regular drywall sanding screens.

There's a suction adjuster on it, too. Too much suction causes the sanding pad to stick to the filler.
