Hawks just won (12:40 of the second overtime), on a Kane hat trick goal.

Yeah saw it. Pumped for the finals. I think it's going to be a great series. Bruins to win though, of course.

In your dreams. I'd make a bet with you, but there is nothing Boston has that I would want.

Doing some work on me own place and gave the CMS a work out with some larger size material for some cabinets. Works a treat.

Festool says 3rd party items might void the warranty of the dust extractor. It is aimed at the Oneida Dust Deputy but the way it is written could be called on any 3rd party item.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


I have to ask if the bigger hose is better why would they supply the vac with an inferior hose? Better yet why even offer an inferior hose?

That's okay you don't need to DWB. I agree with you.

I got the saw, because it's lighter and still cuts 6" or so crown with a ten inch blade, so there's less deflection. I got the vac because I'm doing a 1400 s.f. floor right now. I can set up in the home. Also less dust in backyard pools when I'm doing decks. But that's all the green chit I'm eating.

The 27mm hose works with all the tools. You do not need a 36mm hose on a sander and it would be cumbersome. The 36mm hose is meant for the tools that make a large volume of dust or chips, such as their routers, hand planer, Kapex and the rail saws.

You can use the 27mm hose with the kapex, it fits inside the DC port, but you will notice the difference between it and the 36mm.

This might make the hardcore Festools fans queasy...but it works well...someday I might make the jump on the vac but for now this does a great job.
