Hose connections question
« on: December 11, 2017, 10:52 AM »
I have connected a 27mm hose with a rotating connector and sleeve connector to work with a wall mounted boom arm in my shop. However, I can anticipate times when I want to disconnect the hose from the connector sleeve and clean up around the shop or even attachable tool to it. Is there a reducer for lack of a better term that will fit over the rotating connector end so I can fit my cleaning tools or sander? If there is can anyone provide the part number?

Sorry for the late reply, but I just noticed this thread during a Search.

Anyway, the Suction Adapter D50/D36  (Item number 452897)  will work for some of what you want. This fitting's larger end fits over your hose's Rotating Connector. The fitting's small end has an outside diameter like that of the D27 hose's Hose Sleeve (tool end,) therefore, will fit into the same tools. However, the inside diameter is larger than that of the D27's tool-end fitting, so it will NOT fit the same tools that the D27 hose's tool end fits over.

So, the Suction Adapter fits inside the ends of your cleaning tools and tubes, and inside many other tools, like a TS55, for instance. It will also fit in the OF1400 router's ports, but not those on the smaller OF1010. And it won't fit on the sanders. 

Lastly, this is a non-antistatic fitting, if that makes a difference to you.
