Hose question. Am I missing something?
« on: April 09, 2018, 04:27 PM »
Is there an adapter I can use to connect one hose to another?

I have this Festool 493047 Hose Sleeve but it needs to have a different end (the vac end) for them to connect to each other.

You need another vac end so one hose is vac-vac + the connector you listed. OR use the new connectors. Sledge (Festool) indicated that to be possible with the new connectors. OR tape them together using masking tape.

See attachment.

FYI, the new braided sleeve hoses will join together without any voodoo or extra bits.

Ok thanks guys. 

Thats what I am doing now, I have a D36 with Vac----Vac-Adapter-Vac----Toolend that I also swap a D27 hose onto. 

I just assumed [wink] that because Festool is German there would be a more efficient way of doing it!

I bought the sleeved hose with cord when they came out, replaced the vac end with a tool end, plug that into my 36mm hose, use an extension cord to connect the plugin.  Voila...long hose with minimal pressure drop.
