I am new to FOG and Festool. I am a hobbyist, and my workload if quite small. I am using Ipe (Brazilian hardwood) mainly. I will be cutting with a Dewalt 745 table saw, and sanding with hand sanders, as well a drilling with a 1930s Delta drill press (I love that machine). I know the risks are small for my situation, but I work in the basement of my house, and worry about the health consequences of Ipe's fine dust.
I also solder for electronics work. I would like to pump the fumes outside somehow.
I am thinking of getting the Festool mini (for financial reasons) and a cyclone (to take care of the large pieces). I have several questions:
Does the mini have all the great features of the larger units, such as low noise, slow startup for the connected tools, auto off for connected tools, variable speed, full certified Hepa protection, self cleaning, and antistatic hoses?
Will my table saw fit the mini?
Can I add a carbon filter on top of the Hepa filter, so that I can use the mini to suck and filter the soldering fumes? I would like to have a blower exhaust to pipe the fumes outside, but it looks like this is now possible with Festool, right?
I know I am asking a lot from the mini, but I am exploring various options, and this one looks best to me so far.
Thanks for your help in advance.
