Best size hose for TS55 and miter saw

Just added a TS55 to the ever growing collection and after using wondered if a larger hose than the 27mm would be better at collecting the dust. That hose seems perfectly fine with the sander,...

Re: Festool @ 2009 Builders Show

Dan,

I think they are tentatively set for March 1, with the rest of the new line. They are available in Europe at this point, I believe since last Sept or so.

There were a few small reviews I...

Re: A milestone!

Rick,

Not to worry. I have the triple cat system in place. Including one that must be part bobcat and wouldn't fit in a Sys12 if there were such a thing.

They are, as I've discovered, easily...

Thanks Peter,

I'll see if anyone carries them around here. Otherwise an order is in order!

Re: No Apron for You!

I'd agree. My first thought was a Chateauneuf du Pape. Lots to choose from here. One of my favorites is the Perrin & Fils Les Sinards. Ought to run you around $35. It's the baby version of their...

You mean this? No, there wasn't one in the box. Can't say I was expecting one of them, though. I did get the collet wrench, however :D:D

I had already exchanged emails with Ron right after the router arrived, because I thought it odd that there weren't any rods in the box. His reply was

Re: OF1010 and the guide rails

So, I heard back from McFeelys and they said the rods aren't supposed to be part of the router package.

Anyone know a reason why they'd be included with one dealer like Joraft's and not with...

Re: Quick weekend project

Poto,

What a great way to spend some time together! And a nice result to boot.



Were you ever able to find some properly sized tools for her? Or has she just taken over your green ones now?...

Re: OF1010 and the guide rails

Thanks everyone!

I'll check with McFeelys and see if they can't find some rods to send out.

Sometimes I feel like a routerless child. :rofl:

Re: OF1010 and the guide rails

It's just shy of 3 months old. I asked the dealer when it arrived if the rods weren't supposed to be there, but he didn't think they were included.

Re: OF1010 and the guide rails

Out of curiosity, does anyone know how to order the guide connecting rods?

My 1010 came with a guide stop, but no rods.

Thanks,

Re: Festool users: The Next Generation

You might try these. They are supposed to be made well and to last. Not sure if they are all sized for smaller hands, but it might be worth checking out.
