Cut-Out tool dust bowl?

As I prepare to drywall my basement ceiling, I know I will need to mark and cut holes for the recessed lighting. And I was planning to use a cut-out 'zip' saw for cutting those holes and the wall receptacles.

Is it possibly to use a dust bowl with a cut-out tool? I see they typically work with drills, so unsure if they will connect to the cut-out tool.

I've never seen them for rotary tools but the catch pan is easy to make from an old pie tin or even a sheet of cardboard. But, if you are installing and finishing new sheet rock why bother? Installing the sheetrock and especially sanding the mud is going to be such a mess that you'll hardly notice the dust from cutting light and outlet holes. Typically the catch pans are used in retrofit work where you want to contain the mess. You can certainly use one when hanging your sheetrock but it's sorta like wiping the sweat from your forehead while swimming.

They make a bit for drywall. Get a pack you will need them.
