Finally cut down the 3.5m AS...
« on: June 20, 2017, 12:53 PM »
I have the Kapex for about 2 years with the CT26 directly under and a 36mm 3.5m AS hose connecting the two with a big loop in the middle - I couldn't bring myself to shorten the hose - until this past Sunday (bored I guess). I have to say that after a few cuts the dust collection was visibly better - maybe 5% (90 to 95) - I think it was worth it. I removed about 1 meter -  maybe a bit more - I'm sure that I'll find a use for it sometime  [big grin]

If you are thinking about doing something similar, I would not hesitate.


In theory, theory and reality are the same. In reality, theory and reality are different - especially in woodworking!

I read here that Bob Marino has a Kapex specific hose. Unforfunately it seems to be on back order. Just a note for those not so energetic as the OP.
