Make sure that you get the correct adapter however: Buy Backing Pad, 6", Festool, Abranet Sanding Discs And Pads, Sandpaper,. Don't use the sandpaper directly attached to a Festool backing pad.

Also, I bought a little Abranet hand sanding block with a dust collection hose. Here's a brochure showing all three of their sanders: I have the little one and the hose. It works great besides excellent dust collection, the hose is small and light so it doesn't take any effort to use it. The hose connects to the CT22 inlet port.

I have a friend that was telling me how great the Abranet paper was. He said that the only thing he did not like about it was that it was hard on the pads. He ruined 3 pads before he discovered that he needed an adapter.
