They *did* work...

All the new bluetooth batteries and modules appear in searches but the product pages cannot be loaded too. Probably being updated. Hopefully.

  • Hello my Festool friends! 😊
Can it really beat this one? Hmm, feeling sceptical.

Will definitely get a CTL Midi when it comes with the new hose with power on button!

From what I saw, the power on button on the hose is linked to a Bluetooth module that will be available for the CT 26/26/48. There is no module slot on the Midi, so I would assume there would have to be a redesign to enable the remote functionality. One can hope; or perhaps a cordless Bluetooth extractor is in the works? ;-)

Someone just provided a link to some of the new detail on hoses/batteries/bluetooth etc. for the UK. Sadly, definitely no bluetooth for Midi.

That’s probably the same reason Rick doesn’t provide the Maxsys capability on the Mini or Midi. They both need different circuit boards to be enabled.  [sad]  I’d kill for that option on my Midi.

Sure looks nice. I've cut ridged foam on the table saw but even with ct22 connected it's still a mess. As a hobbyist I doubt I'll get one though, but it sure looks nice.

Do tell more about the new hose, the wrap and the on off.

Ok Phil, will give it a chance! 😊

When will you manufacture my invention for CMS Carvex? Been waiting for years now!

Hi
 The new hose is highly flexible and will slide over edges, such as FS guide rail......the image below will give an idea  [smile]

Thanks for the photo @Phil Beckley , hose looks nice.

I like the fact that Festool have given the end user options in terms of the bluetooth switch on the hose for those who don't want to purchase the new bluetooth airstream batteries etc.

Pressing a switch on the business end of the hose is still more convenient than walking back and forth to the vac.
Also allows for the use of other branded cordless tools with the CT vac.

I don't need it but it looks pretty darn well designed, especially the top/bottom rail guide function.

@Phil Beckley is the new hose also slick on the inside, or is it just a tight sleeve over the classic hose? I wonder how the ends are fitted on a slick hose, perhaps it's partially sealed on?

I.S.C.18V ... extraction
How does the extraction work when used with the rail/angle thingy?

Hi Gregor
 The extraction nozzle moves down over the blade area and the hose fits above.....the immediate advantage also of the new hose type

@Phil Beckley , is it correct to assume that the tool only cuts in one direction (like most jig saws) versus in both directions?

.....cuts one direction. The 'blade sets' have a stationary section and a moveable cutting blade. I have all the kits here and will post some images tomorrow

New hose looks promising. I have two due for replacement so this is very timely.

I've never needed to cut insulation thicker than 220mm so that Hultafors knife does it for me - used it a few hours ago on 220 as a matter of fact. [big grin]

That new insulation cutter is a specialty machine for sure and they are not common over here - but I think that it will find a lot of users. I am sure Festool did not make it based on pure speculation.  After my talk with ze German rep I have realized that the woodworking markets in Europe differ quite a lot.

In the link one of the pictures shows it being used on a rail. Rail goes on the bottom with a "foot piece" on the rail.

....yes to the rail. One version clips on to the base of the ISC and there is 50mm to allow for. The other is a wheeled unit for use with the guide rail or independently

Dare I say, this looks slicker than your red competitor's offering.
I only wish the USA would get with the times when it comes to insulation.
I was surprised to find out that Home Depot carries Roxul now.
It's only been about 17 years since I started using mineral wool
for personal use, so that sounds about right.   I mean, we did just start using
chip cards this year. 🤣


I did take a look at the link and I do think it is innovative and that it does seem like a very well thought out piece of kit.

I am not in the market for one at all but I applaud the effort - and the outcome.
