  I also always connect up the shop-vac to the sander to keep the dust down, so I want the holes.

Thinking about the H&L with holes, it makes me wonder if it's best to always have a vac attached to it, otherwise the pad may get dirty faster around the holes. Does that make any sense ? Or has anyone experienced that ?

I don't know ,Charlie, I have never hooked up the shop vac, just use the canister on the sander and also a good way to collect some sanding dust to mix with a little shellac to repair defects in the piece being sanded.
