Festool Planex And Cleantex


Had some work to do on me baby's room and thought I would test out the planex and cleantex AC. All I can say is wow. I'm very impressed with the setup and it was about 5x quicker than hand sanding. Love the amount of adjustment there was to the dust extraction system. Only thing I didn't like was the bang the vac makes every so often to clean the filters. I'm sure I would get used to it but it made me jump every time it went off.

I got mine a couple of weeks ago. I know what you mean about the pop it makes. It definitely takes some getting used to.

Re: Festool Planex And Cleantex


The pop sure is a pop. Sounds more like something breaking each time lol

Love the way it holds it's self to the wall and ceiling though. Very minimal amount of dust also. Was weird not having my eyes and face covered in dust and a soaked shirt from busting my butt sanding.

It's an allegro compaxial ventilation fan. It's designed mainly for supplying air or exhausting air. I can leave doors open and get nice amounts of airflow through the rooms I work in and it also keeps the dust levels way down.
I sanded that whole room with door open and not one spec of dust outside the room. With don't moan anymore than I filled house with dust. The thing in the window is designed so it will allow the duct to fit in any window opening

I found that having vac on full suction and then the head set to suck to wall and thumb dial for suction was at full was best setting for first hit. Then on second hit I found thumb dial set to about half way was best for next hit then turn the head suction off and use full suction for final hit. The first hit removes some serious amounts of compound.
