FSK rail hose interference
« on: December 20, 2018, 07:54 AM »
I use my hk55 inside quite a bit. When it's on an fsk rail the hose to my CT hangs up during certain cuts. On a conventional rail there is a guide dohicky to help the hose slide over the end...i don't have one tho. Has any one come up with a solution for the fsk?

Here is a technique that the Festool trainers show:

Take the hand and arm that you are grasping the saw with and run it under the hose and then around to the trigger.  Easier to do than to describe.  If you do that successfully the hose will be cradled in the joint at your elbow and the hose elevated.

Perhaps this will help.

Sure thing.  It's always easiest for me to see a picture or video demonstration.

After seeing Sedge do that I have been doing it too.... Just not always practical.... And a pita with the bigger hose....
It's like his tip for plunging the hk... Sedge makes it look so smooth and simple, but to me it's awkward and not second nature yet despite using the go every day.

I sometimes throw the hose over my shoulder.
