Old hose but at 50% still a great deal
« on: March 30, 2018, 09:39 AM »
https://festools-online.com/500276-festool-11-1-2-ft-suction-hose-d27-22x3-5m.html

Just a heads up.

If this has been posted I apologize, but for 125.00 you cant go wrong. Even if you tool the sleeve off, a cord, a case and an old style hose for 125.00? It's well worth it. I only see this price at one place so far.

Thanks Dovetail.

Does this have the old or the new hose end?

Maybe early, but do people have thoughts on this one vs. the new braided hose? Braided hose seems nicer as a hose, but the integrated cord is nice too. Seems odd to not to have something in the middle yet.

Mine had the old end. The new hoses are better of course, but 125 for a cord, a, case and a hose? It's a no brainer for me if nothing more than backups. I personally dont like the fabric cover for the hose in this kit, I may not even use it.

One thing to bear in mind, it's a 22mm hose at the tool end, so it's ideally suited for sanders and less so for saws, routers, planers.  The domino XL might be questionable (I don't really know).  It's certainly a good price, but if you're looking for airflow, the newer hose (500677 - $130) is smoother on the inside and 27mm all the way through at the tool end and 32mm at the vac side.

I’ve had my sleeved hose since it was released.  I would rather have a sleeved hose with the cord in the fabric vs the new hose when hooked to a tool.  With the older type of sleeved hose having the hose and cord in one is awesome.  I actually just bought two more. I’ve had no issues using it with my Domino 700 or MT55 or TS75. Only issue I have is when using it with the 1400 router,  it works awesome with everything else.  Plus I prefer this hose bc it still has the older style hose end which I prefer.  The new hose ends are garbage.

I wonder if they are going to discount the older style hoses.  For example the 36mm Festool 452882 old style and the new style Festool 500681 are both $175.

I suspect that older hoses may be discounted in the future.  I have seen discounting happen in the past for older models but learned from dealers that they can't discount until the program is announced to them or they are given approval.

I use it for my XL700, TS 55 and RO 150 - the new 'bigger' hose might be better, but for me it's good enough.

Should it be available here (other side of the pond) for that price I would get another one without much further thought.

Hi @Ster1154 , yes @Dovetail65 posted that last week.  I ordered one and it arrived today.  Unfortunately, it won't fit my Ultra Dust Deputy due to a pair of mondo ridges inside of the collar at the vac-end. I'm now wondering if that's what most folks have been posting about regarding that hose.

Does anyone know what replacement collar is needed to fix that?  Seems like a real pain.

Ah crud - sorry to jam up the FOG. 

@c_dwyer I ended up getting a Festool blast gate and it connects the hose to the dust deputy.  Kind of a pain and I'd love to know if there's a better fix.

I bought two of the sleeved hoses and they came exactly as pictured with a 16ga Plug-It cord in a T-Lok Sys-3.

Beaver Tools (Festools-Online) shipped them out super fast via Fed-Ex.

I had a minor problem with the shipper and the seller was quick to make amends.  Wasn't their fault but they took care of the problem.  Very impressed.

I'm currently trying to convince myself I need another one of these!

Just a tip on the sleeved hose with plugit.  I've had one since they first came out.  I replaced the vac end with another tool end as it can plug it into my 36mm hose tool end.  This gives me a very long vac hose with minimal pressure drop.  I use a short 12 ga extension cord to extend the plugit.  Works great for me.  I'm trying desperately not to buy the new covered 7m 36mm hose but probably will lose the argument to the voices in my head.

Just to be clear, (seeing as how I already ordered one!) Can I remove the fittings on these hoses and replace with ones I already own? I managed to buy a couple of the old fittings before they disappeared. Also saw on the same site a T-18-3+, and was wondering about battery compatibility with my existing drills. I know thats been covered elsewhere but Im still a bit in the weeds about it. Would love to get the drill at that price but want to get a blue tooth battery soon....

Just received the old sleeved hose and to the positive it does have the old style rubber tool end but on the negative side it has a new (to me) vac end sleeve that has internal nubs (starting 12mm from the business end) that prevent it from engaging the Dust Deputy pipe. I'd already cut down the excessively long taper on the DD pipe so I don't want to cut that any shorter.

Had anyone cut out the nubs in the hose hub and plugged the resulting holes with something? Did that work or is there another solution?

I've forgotten how to post a photo of my own  [unsure]

The nubs are positive on the inside but negative on the outside of the hub.

They form a groove on the outside into which a positive locking mechanism could engage but I haven't seen anything like that on Festool  dust extraction equipment.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Maybe?  I didn't do an actual side by side comparison.  I just took the old ribbed hose and jammed it into the new systainer and coiled the new hose into the garage of my CT26.  I will say that the old hose didn't fit into the systainer as nicely as the new one, but then again I didn't spend any time to make it a tight coil or anything like that.

I'm not crazy.  Here are the pics to prove it -- about a 10" difference including the fittings (though maybe you give back an inch or two if the hoses were both laid out perfectly straight):

Wow, that is interesting!  I'd have assumed it was the exact same hose, just one in the sleeve - evidently not.  I wonder why the sleeved hose is shorter.

I was curious so I shoved my tape measure and covered hose into the dust extractor to hold one end, and gently pulled the hose straight. I got 3580mm roughly from outside of end to outside of end. It would easily stretch further, but my goal wasn't to stretch the hose.

Ear3's older hose may just be well used and stretched out??

Bought one hose, received it, saw this thread pop back up after using said hose, and wound up buying another one weeks ago. Shocked they still have inventory to sell. Beaver Tools must have bought a truck load. With the Sys 3 included, that I am promptly repurposing into an Abranet holder, it is a no brainer purchase(s). One hose lives in the hose garage, and the other is stored in a Sys 4 that holds all my cleaning tools, adapters, helping hand, etc.

Been trying to figure out how to setup an automatic blast gate system so I can run two tools without having to make any changes, just GO! There comes a point buying another dust extractor might just be wiser. No one seems to make an automatic 2 1/4" blast gate, and it would need to be electric, not pneumatic.

Interesting find on the shorter hose. I also noticed that once I replaced my boom arm hose with the sleeved version, things always seemed just about 6" too short... I'm going to have to take measurements now to see if this is an epidemic.
