I think that's a great idea Mike. I've been thinking of a way to make the bags reuseable, even just a few times. Those clips never crossed my mind. I'm gonna pass by the store Monday and pick some up:thumbup:

I was thinking of putting a self-adhesive zipper on one, with a little line of extra superglue on each flange.

I like the clips though....

I've dumped them twice and then stopped. It's like $7 a bag for my CT26. That usually lasts at least a month probably since I'm not doing primarily woodworking stuff right now. But even if you used a bag or two per job, just throw it away and your done.

Also, Tom pointed out that suction decreases as you reuse the bags since dust starts to build up around the edges.

What material are the reusable bags made of? Festool claims they can be reused 500 times before replacing them. I wish they made reusable for the midi

I'm not sure. I'm not a full blown festool geek yet. Lol. I'm using the fleece bags on my 26.
