Well designed , looks great. Hilti seems to be pushing the body styling pretty hard these days. Some industrial designers are having a blast.

String two of these together (they come in a two pack) and you'll have easy clamps for the hose.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I have an older Fein Turbo II. I agree, it's a great vac, especially for a sander. Didn't want to spend a lot so the Turbo I it is.

Just ordered 10 blades for my Mafell 40 from Germany. They were 150 bucks cheaper (including shipping) than buying from Timberwolf. Ordered them yesterday and they will be here tomorrow. Damn!

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


That's like that hose/cord combo I just bought. Atlantic Plywood wants $285 for it. That's a price that would really hurt. I can buy a vacuum for that price. I got it elsewhere for $195 shipped to my door. $90 difference for the same thing. As far as I'm concerned it's worth about $75. It's a vacuum hose and power cord, WTH.

Total sleeper on the market. . The only thing it lacks is portability.. it's ok I through together a top plate and now it holds and locks tstas and sys boxes. It primarily stays in shop hook up to DD. But when it's needed in field its set up to be a GRABNGO.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Fein Turbo I came in today. Waiting on the Mirka Coaxial Hose/Cord to come in on Monday.

The hose that came with it hooks up nice enough to use for now.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Mirka Coaxial Hose came in today. It's got 174" of 1 1/2" hose with the electrical cord inside. a 20" adapter section for the vac side and a 20" section for the sander side.



Here's the adapter side for the sander. The 20" section can be removed/replaced.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Everybody keeps going to cool tool stores, but yesterday I remembered that the cheap cheap stores have a few little things that I could use.
The little lady went for a tan, so I went in to the nearest dollar store to see what I could get.
Certainly not the best stuff in the world, but definitely useful.
Couple of things for the first aid kit, some different marking pencils, microfiber cloths, cheap batteries and glue brushes, note pads.... Just random crap I don't need at a premium price.
Oh, and I picked up some more Husky Connect organizers last week too.

The sound (pitch/frequency?) of the motor’s RPM isn’t annoying. Too loud and too high really bothers me.

22 minutes with a fresh 9.0 AH battery. You can hear the motor slowing down a bit after 20 minutes.

12 + minutes with a fresh 6.0 AH battery. It sounds like it had just a bit lower RPMs with the smaller battery. It started slowing down a bit at 11 minutes.

It comes with a fleece vacuum bag, and paper bags are available as are plastic tank liners.

You can also get a longer hose and an adapter to fit tools without the “airlock” system.

Thanks. I ordered it yesterday. Passed on the kit to get some bigger batteries. I already have 4 of the 6ah.
