Step up transformer
« on: August 14, 2017, 11:19 AM »
I have purchased a DSG-AG 125 Festool diamond cutting grinder from Europe that comes in 220 Volt 50-60Hz and has 1400watts.
Does anybody knows what it will be the best step up transformer to use ?
I intend to cut tiles and drywall with the Festool Vacum CT36 attached to this tool.
The vacuum is for 110 volt use.

I've had good luck with the products from  I see they have a 1500W model for $75.  I've run my Jura Swiss coffeemaker on the same version for almost 5 years.

The ones that Timberwolf sells are probably the same, but you have another place to shop for it.

And in a shop or house, on can make a US-220 male to Shumko Eu female receptacle.
You might as well order a few extra Eu extension cords to use to make them up.

A nice method is to use a Nuetrik TrueOne PowerCon (female I think), and put that on both the Eu and US versions, and the male version on the tool.

From the wall with the power:

The end to the tool (via an EU shumko to abide Festool's rules to avoid modification:
