My Kapex and I are still within our 30 day relationship trial period. As I said in an earlier post, I'm so far quite dissatisfied with its dust collection. Here's the back story... I only (barely) convinced my wife that this saw is worth its huge cost because "the fantastic DC would allow me to set it up right INSIDE the house and, therefore, I'll finish all of our baseboard and window/door trim work this winter."
For testing purposes, it's out in my shop hooked up to the CT26 with a 27mm hose. Many of you have posted that the 36mm hose will make a huge difference. (Boy, do I hope so!) Rather than spend $150 for the 36mm hose just for a "test", I'm thinking of jerry-rigging my boom arm's 50mm hose to fit. If 36mm provides better dust collection than 27mm, wouldn't 50mm be even better? Or, could it at least convince me that "approximately 95%" IS possible... and I can keep my promise? And, that investing in a 36mm, or another 50mm hose will be money well spent? Anyone ever try the 50mm on your Kapex?
Thanks for sharing your DC hose comparisons and your comments. Joel
