Perhaps email Beaver and ask them to check their stock...? The picture on their site sure does not look like what you have received ---

That's an unfortunate design decision by Oneida to connect the hose on the outside of the tube instead of an internal connection like most are done.

Mine should come early next week. Let me see if I can figure out the adapter needed.

My sleeved hose is probably a couple of years old and it also has the internal ribs and will not fit on the UDD.  I have a D36 hose connected to the UDD and the sleeved hose connected to that.

Tried some fittings, the Festool Y does fit but is too long so a little jostling of the hose pulls the Y off the DD. The Fein Y would work much better as it is about 1/4 the size (and cost) of the Festool Y but it has a circular ridge inside that prevents it pushing onto the DD pipe.

Another thing (don't know where it came from but it was probably the result of a tip posted here) works much better than the Festool Y as it is much shorter. The red thing is an adjustable air port to allow air in and reduce suction if your dust extractor doesn't have adjustable speed (Fein).

Michael - I think but I don't know for sure that the vac end of that hose is 27mm. SO you should be able to remove the existing end and the replace it with your hose end that works now.

Before I send mine back, is there an adapter (part no.) that I can use to replace the hose fitting w/o having to get the Y-connector for the UDD?

This is how I did my sleeved hose and the UdD.  I cut a small section of 36mm hose about 2 ft long and used a Festool hose Union.  @c_dwyer @rvieceli

https://www.festool.de/zubehoer/499196---ad-d36cs50cs70cms might solve your problems in the manner of the post directly above, but at a lower price point than cutting a long hose short.

MK......yes mine (new discounted) came with the two ribs...my 3 year old one has the same ribs
There are no mistakes....just new designs.

I'll probably just cut two short notches in the DD pipe end. Probably only need to be about 5mm deep by about 10mm wide. A regular hose end (without internal nubs) should engage the DD pipe well past those notches.

I preordered 2 of those sleeved hoses when they first became available a couple of years ago. Both of those hoses have connectors WITH the male protrusions.

On the original hoses that came with the 2 vacs, the connectors on those hoses DO NOT HAVE male protrusions.

Looks like you need to find the original hose connector and swap it out.

I bought a sleeved hose just about a year ago and the one I received has the internal protrustions. 

I tried swapping out the end with an end that fits from a different AS hose, but the connector doesn't fit with the rest of the hose terminator components.

I haven't been able to use it on my DD because of that.  I am afraid of cobbling something together with third party unions because of the risk of breaking the anti-static connection and zapping my CT36.

I've never understood the idea that static in the hose could kill the vac. Is this something Festool has confirmed?
 
Question: I've never noticed any metal conductor at the hose port on my Festool vacs. Maybe I just haven't looked close enough?

If there isn't a ground conductor in the hose port on the vac then the whole black plastic portion of the vac housing is conductive (for static). If that is the case (or even if there is a wire conductor) any static that makes it to the black housing should preferentially be conducted to the ground conductor.

Why would static prefer to jump around non-conductive parts to zap the control board? Seems like a rumor to me. Festool sells non-AS hoses don't they? They're only supposed to be used on non-Festool vacs?

I've used an original (presumably) non-AS Dust Deputy sitting on a non-AS plastic bucket strapped to the top of a CT Mini for several years. I didn't bother to bridge the non-conductive parts.

In my experience at least 75% of the benefit of an anti-static hose comes from the hose itself weather it's attached to a static conductive vac or not.

In my shop a 20 year old old Fein Turbo vac (9.55.13) is hanging from the ceiling by a rope. An original DD is hanging nearby with a plain old Shop Vac hose from HD connecting the two. The Shop Vac version is good because it is very stiff and that keeps the bends fair. No bridging of static.

I usually use Festool AS hose with that settup and in the driest moths do get some zaps but not terrible. For clean up farther away I switch to a longer non-AS hose which makes it clear that the hose itself is the main benefactor in controlling static. Much more static with the non-AS hose both in zaps and crud clinging to the outside of the hose.

I think the hose ends of AS hoses have carbon in then or something to make them AS as not all tool ends have metal...although the RAS does, for example.

There is a metal conductor in the vac port.

1. Hey Michael, on some previous Festool vs Dust Deputy discussions, I believe it became a finger pointing exercise between Festool & DD. However, some time later DD did come out with their redesigned grounded unit and then the Festool up-in-smoke discussion went away.  [huh]

2. There doesn't have to be a metal conductor/piece to enable the completion of a circuit. The part just needs to have the proper amount of carbon loaded material in the mix. You want to add just enough carbon black to make the connector/hose conductive but not enough to affect the processing of the product or its functionality or longevity.

There is a metal conductor in the vac port.

I just checked my old Mini and there is a nice spring contact.
So, wouldn't a lot of static in a non-as hose be conducted away by that contact? Rather than jump to the control board?

Has anyone found a solution here for attaching the sleeved hose to a Dust Deputy? Like others, I figured I could attach the end off another AS hose I had, only to realize that the SKU for the connector end of the sleeved hose is completely different, designed fatter to accommodate the sleeve material slipping underneath it. Hard to explain without photos but it looks like I'll need an adapter.

I do have the Festool Y-adapter somewhere, so maybe I'll try to get that hooked up momentarily.

Just buy the Festool 493047 Hose Sleeve, $12.00 from Toolnut/Festoolproducts.  It will slip over both the Oneida and Festool fittings.

If that sleeve is big enough to fit over the Festool hose end - on both ends - then it will be way too loose on the DD.

Ryan, not sure if this will help you, I too bought the sleeved hose and have a DD setup. I was able to zip-up my original hose into the sleeve, it’s a tight fit, but no issues in the 2 weeks since purchased, probably 40hrs of use so far.
