Got hooked on Festool equipment this summer and have not bought a piece that I have not been happy with. Just wanted to say hello and ask a question. I have a kapex hooked to a dedicated 26 dust extractor. Dust collection is ok but not as good as with some of my other pieces. Currently I have a 27mm hose hooked to it. I just bought the tradesman kit last weekend with the 36mm hose. Which hose do you guys run on your kapex saws. Also which hose would on run on a domino 500,  2200 router, and a ts55.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the FOG! DC on Kapex is noticeably better with the 36mm hose.

36mm is also a must for 2200 in most situations, though you can get away with the 27 for light duty routing. Domino and ts55 are fine on the 27.

Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I'll be getting another 36mm hose.

You can get a short run of the 36mm hose for the kapex. @Bob Marino offers one: http://www.bobmarinosbesttools.com/kapex-hose/p/KAPEXHOSE/

I actually just use a ridgid 1 7/8 hose with an adapter, which I find works even better than the 36mm hose.  I think yo u can also fit the Bosch 35mm hose on the kapex: https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-3931-3-Meter-9-85-Anti-Static/dp/B0000AV78Y/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1484271689&sr=8-11&keywords=Bosch+35mm+hose
