If you’re looking to save space and money, you can get by with just the TS55 and Dewalt planer.  Edge jointing can be done with your TS55.  Face jointing can be done with a sled in your planer.  The HL850 might be a touch faster or more convenient than straightlining with your saw depending on your setup, but not by much.

Sorry that didn’t exactly give you the excuse you might have been looking for.   [big grin]

FestoolProducts / ToolNut just started taking pre-orders, so yea Im sure it will work with the US vacs. I just pre-ordered a set myself.

Hey all!

I currently have the Ridgid 6" floor jointer that's served me well and continues to do so. I'm always looking for ways to minimize and make more space in the shop. Is it possible for the HL 850 to replace this? I have a TS55 and DeWalt 13" planer if that helps to know. I build mostly small wooden goods, boxes, maybe some basic household furniture here and there.

Having a harder time with this than I thought, and suspect I made a mistake.

Bought a Festool CT Midi and an Oneida Ultimate Dust Deputy Retrofit Cyclone for Festool --- pretty much have them together (need to make one correction from a stupid mistake) but am coming up short in terms of connecting to my existing small size shop vac-oriented dust shoe.

I have a 1 1/4" extension wand coming out of the dust shoe, and I'd like a straight/direct connection to the Dust Deputy, but the problem is the included Festool hose has a right-angle to it which I wasn't expecting, and the fitting at the other end is a special shape which doesn't match up to the extension wand.

I'm thinking I can take advantage of the right angle and attach it to the Dust Deputy pointing straight up, but I'm flummoxed by how to get from the odd Festool connector to the bog-standard 1 1/4" extension wand intake. I did set up a temporary bodge of a PVC pipe connector and two short lengths of bilge hose (1 1/4" and 1 1/8"), but I'm not wild about how the PVC pipe connector fits to the Festool connector.

Is it possible to remove the Festool connector and replace it with something which would suit my needs?

Or, would the "Curved Hand Tube D36 Poly" attach nicely to the hose which I have?

Thanks @Shane Holland - I'm guessing the modest price increase has to do with the new hose which, if it works as 'advertised', should be well worth it. 

I'm really intrigued with the Bluetooth remote- could have used that this weekend when using my Kreg jig with T18 drill.  Would be handy when using with the cleaning kit as well.

Is the primary difference between existing vacs and the 2018 version the new hose, with secondary updates of the hose garage and cord wrap?  Curious if there's a change in CFM for any of the models.

One more question (I'm guessing I know the answer to this one but want to verify):  I'm assuming the 10% discount still applies if you buy a tool with it?

@Gerald_D, good questions. Yes, you nailed the updates to the vacs, no changes to specifications regarding suction.

Yes, the 10% discount applies still. I've already got our website updated to show the new vacs on the dropdown list on tools' product pages to give the option to bundle with the new models which are annotated with "2018 model" to make them easy to identify.

Note that there is a modest price increase for the updated vacs.

Just got a ct36 about 2 weeks ago, having some serious buyers remorse now.

Neat, can you replace it if need be?

No Love for the Mini/MIdi?

@mike_aa, the module for the Bluetooth plugs into an auxiliary port on the vac that doesn't exist on the MINI, MIDI or CT SYS.  [sad]
