Is this the best thread to ask a sort of UK specific question? I'll ask it anyway and maybe someone can move it if it's the wrong place.
Has anyone successfully used any other vac attachments (specifically Henry as they're cheap as chips on eBay) on a Festool hose? I'm weighing up buying just a 36mm Festool hose as I need one, or paying the extra and getting the tradesman's cleaning set which includes the 36mm hose and various attachments. This would mean chucking away my large collection of siemens, henry, karcher attachments that I have been using on various incarnations of - you guessed it - siemens, henry & karcher vacs over the years.
I didn't need the angled wand bit on my last vac as it was built into the hose, but I'd be looking to get a henry one as they're metal and cheap and try to ram it into the 36mm somehow.
Ta in advance.
I've also just ordered a couple of these to get my bosch sander and chop saw to fit the hose perfectly by the way. http://www.espares.co.uk/product/es538504/karcher-vacuum-tool-adaptor-sleeve?ApplianceTypeId=1086&ManufacturerId=877
- just cut it at the stop you want to use and as it's rubber it fits perfectly. The large end pops straight over the end of the 27mm hose - not sure about the 36 yet as I don't have it.
UPDATE: I've started a new thread on the subject in case it's not a UK specific thing.
