Festool 1010 EQ router and Festool vacuum MIDI
« on: January 11, 2019, 05:25 PM »
I have Festool 1010 EQ router and Festool vacuum. It is always a challenge to get the vacuum hose to connect to 1010 EQ
it takes a while to connect but once connected it stays on .

Is there easy way to get this hose connected to 1010 EQ quickly?

Squeeze it into more or less the right shape and push harder. Its a weird fit but for me it isn't overly difficult to put on.

Sedge recently showed on Instagram how he connects the hose to the oval dust port: https://www.instagram.com/p/BsOaeSzFTO5/.

The newer the hose connector the more stiff it’s going to be, that’s normal. As they break in they stretch a little easier, but it can take some use and time.

Thanks everyone for feedback
Looks like I have to keep doing, squeeze it and eventually it will get easier.
