Grab a scrap piece of 2x10 and make a drill-press accessory that helps make drum-sanding a less dusty operation. Use a holesaw to drill the centered 3" hole, and cut the chute with your bandsaw or jigsaw. Then, clamp the jig to your drill-press table. Air currents created by the spinning drum direct dust into the chute, and the vacuum system takes over from there.
