The Most Innovative Company in Restoration Has Done it Again!

Paint is the first thing people notice, and the basis for a great paint job is great bodywork. The Eastwood Contour DSB System will allow you to get the results you want with the benefit of almost no dust. The saying goes "90% of the body filler ends up on the floor", and anyone who has sanded filler knows that is completely true. But when you use the DSB System it ends up in your shop vacuum rather than on your clothes, everything in your shop and getting tracked all over the garage and house.

Specially designed Contour DSB Sandpaper has holes that align perfectly with the holes in the sanding blocks. Paper is available in seven standard grits from 40 to 400 and is designed for dry sanding and getting the best finish in filler and primers. When sanding body filler start with 40 or 80 grit and progress through finer grits. Sandpaper is available by clicking Eastwood Elite Contour DSB Dustless Sandpaper.

  • Vacuum system removes more than 95% of sanding dust
  • Perfectly straight panels and show car results
  • Easy to use and get great results
  • Sanding blocks are slightly flexible to conform to body lines
  • Keep your shop and yourself clean

    What sandpaper do I need to use with these sanding blocks?

    Always use the Contour DSB Dustless Sandpaper that has holes that align with the holes in the sanding blocks. We have a wide selection that can be found by clicking Eastwood Elite Contour DSB Dustless Sandpaper.

    What is Dustless Sanding?

    Dustless sanding uses a specially designed block with holes that align with holes in sandpaper. A hose connects the sanding block to a shop vacuum with an adapter to match the hose sizes. A regulator in the hose line allows you to adjust suction to get the best results no matter the substrate or grit of sandpaper you are using.

    What are the benefits of dustless sanding?

    Anyone who has sanded bodyfiller and primer knows that almost all of it ends up on the floor, your clothes as well as on everything near the car. And we didn't even mention how it gets tracked all through the garage and house. Because the Eastwood Elite DSB System captures 95% of the dust, there is almost none on the floor or on your clothes. It's amazing how clean everything stays compared to using a standard sanding block.

    Can I use the DSB System on Drywall?

    Absolutely. It's been tested and used on drywall with great results. Just make sure you use the finer grits of sandpaper when sanding.

    How long does the sandpaper last?

    The PSA Sandpaper for the Contour Elite DSB Sanding Blocks lasts about twice as long as normal PSA sandpaper. I know that you're thinking that because there are holes, there is less surface area for sanding and it probably doesn't last as long. But because the vacuum system quickly removes any dust it's not able to build up and clog the sandpaper. This lengthens the lifespan of the paper and it also saves you time because you don't have to constantly stop sanding to try to unclog your paper. The vacuum system keeps the paper clean so it quickly and easily removes material as you sand.

    How many rolls of sandpaper do I need to sand a car?

    This really depends on the size of the vehicle and the substrate you're sanding. A standard car with a typical amount of body filler to get panels straight and fill imperfections will take about one roll. Remember you will need multiple grits to get a good paintable surface. You will start with a lower grit like 40 or 80 and then work through some finer grits because the finer grits will remove the scratches left by the heavier grits.

    Larger vehicles could take more than one roll per grit. Also, if there is a lot of bodyfiller, that could lead to more rolls being used. But you will use less sandpaper than when using standard sanding blocks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleaner EVERYTHING! Works just like the videos! Cut way down on clean up of shop and Lungs!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Dustless Sanding Block System This is one of the simplest tools and now a very critical tool for me. I not only have started using it on my 49 Chevy pickup, I have also used it around the house with sheet rock repairs. Sanding sheet rock inside our house is the real acid test. There was no dust to be found except for a few specks on a bit of wooden trim near the wall patch. To be able to sand without wearing a respirator is completely alien to me (as well as not sealing up a room of the house during a renovation project.) It was wonderful to leave my dual cartridge half-face unit in the drawer and I could see so much better without wearing it. The only problem that I had to overcome was learning to adjust the vacuum from my shop vac downward. Too much vacuum and you can't move the sanding block. Once I got that figured out, it was smooth sailing. I especially am looking forward to when I start in earnest sanding down the multiple coats of filler on the 49 Chevy. I was dreading sealing up the garage to contain the dust from entering into the rest of the house. Keep coming up with neat ideas. I need everyone of them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well, significantly reduces dust I saw a demonstration of this by an Eastwood employee at Carlisle & was impressed enough to get one. It works very well, filler dust is significantly reduced. I still wear a dust mask but I no longer look & feel like I'm covered with sanding dust when I'm done. This won't make sanding filler suddenly fun or less tedious, but it won't be as messy. That's a win. This comes with a block, a hose with an adjustable valve. It has an adapter with air control to connect the end of the hose & smaller vac hoses. It has a 2nd larger adapter for connecting to a 1.75” vac hose. The shop vac isn’t included of course. The sanding block itself is lite & stiff but has some minor flex - about the same as a Durablock. I was concerned the hose coming out of the middle of the back of the block might be annoying but it didn't interfere with my using the block at all. It does use specific sandpaper (available from Eastwood) which has holes to match the holes on the vacuum plate. Lining up the holes was easy. Eastwood has a good supply of grits between 80 & 400. Once I dialed in the vacuum the paper didn't load up as much as regular paper. When it eventually loads up just remember keep the vacuum running as you clean the paper (ask me know I know). The hose is long enough to keep the vac out of your way when using it & is pretty flexible. I didn't have any problems feeling like I was tugging the vacuum around behind me. The instructions give details with adjusting the airflow/vacuum based on sandpaper grit. The hose has a valve on it to control airflow & the adapter (between the hose & the vacuum) has rotating ring to increase or reduce vacuum. The instructions give really good starting place based on grit, a little fine tuning on the fly & dust is seriously reduced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a must buy. I could not believe that it worked so well. Dust problems, not any more. Ease of use, weight, and versatility are all excellent! It for sure is one great purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Dust Control I was very interested in using the DSB because I wanted to keep my garage free of bondo dust. The DSB was easy to setup and within minutes I was sanding primer and bondo without a lick of dust anywhere. I was beyond impressed with the whole system !

    What type, brand vacuum works with this? Also do you use the filter bag that comes with my vacuum? I would think that the filer bag for the vacuum would be needed or there would be sand dust shooting out of the vacuum exhaust. 

    Asked by: Mike66
    I have found that the bags for drywall sanding works best for finer dust particles. You just have to remember to pull the bag more often, turn it inside out and use an air gun to blow out the buildup to keep it fully functional. The yellow shop vac bags for drywall sanding are available at most building supply stores that sell Shop-Vac accessories.

    The DSB comes with an 11 inch block, I believe. What would be an appropriate length for an highly contoured surface; a VW for example?

    Asked by: Steve
    It really depends on the panel in question. The 11" block is a great compromise, that's why we built the kit around it. All the blocks have ample "give" suite contoured panels. The 11" and 16" are great on larger panels with gentle simple contours (doors, roof, hood often times too). If you got a little VW like a Bug you will likely find use in a 5" block for the smaller areas such as the fender's area behind/in front the arch, delicate work on the highly compound contoured hood and wheel arches, for example.

    How does the vacuum work sanding primer instead of coarser body filler. How fine can you go with the sand paper. Do you have 600-800 grit?

    Asked by: Darrellselma
    We only plan to offer up to 400 grit currently, sorry.
