After switching to a 36mm hose, I saw a significant change in dust collection, too. My saw has the Fastcap zero clearance insert. I have two dust hoods, one with a saw stache for certain cuts.

Sales & Dealer Area / Re: FestoolRecon.com coming VERY soon (US)
« Last post by Oso Rojo on Yesterday at 10:09 PM »
I'm curious if anyone else feels this way. I got an email this morning asking me to sign up for their email when reconditioned tools become available. So I did.

I get home from work and check my emails. There are six emails from Festool touting various tools they have for sale reconditioned. When I click on the buy now link in any of those emails, I get a page that says the tools is sold out.

From what I understand, they only send an email that focuses on a singular product. So basically there is one or two alike and the email goes out. Based on the small sample size of six, it appears that I will never actually have a chance to purchase one of these tools and will a whole bunch of worthless emails from the process.

Has anyone had a better experience with this?

thanks for the info. Just something that has been of interest and want to try. less to carry around when mobile.

Nothing wrong with that...one need that many nails to hold a box store jamb together.   [wink]

so if you were gonna use a turbine with a pot you would just change the air in fitting to accept the hose from the turbine and use the pot like you normally would but the atomizing hose that comes out of the pot would also have to be able to hook up to the Fuji gun? wonder if it is possible to get those fittings and modify those things?

Here's a link to a picture of the Fuji pot.

I'd make an adapter to go from turbine hose to pot, then a garden hose splitter to get to the gun.

Ive never had a issue joining 2 55" guide rails together. Do you butt the rails up to each other? I usually leave a small gap maybe 1/16, I use the ts 55 to align the rails slide the saw in the middle of the joint and tighten the gibs down on the saw (little green knobs) tight the guide rail connectors the readj the saws gibs easy peasey

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Another Kapex Bites the dust. Again.
« Last post by Steven Owen on Yesterday at 09:49 PM »
I have a Kapex and so far it is trouble free (fingers crossed).  I read this entire thread tonight hoping (but not expecting) for an update from a Festool.  Alas, seems there are still a fair number of issues (who knows how many or what percentage of units have an issue).  No response from Festool as I assumed.

For now I will go back to using my saw, hoping it’s keeps working and then check back on some of these Kapex threads in a few months.



Just don’t play this track while you’re working in your shop.  It’s just bad luck.

I use my CT22 with a 36mm hose and get great results with my Kapex.  There is hardly any chips and the dust is almost totally gone.

ok, that make since. I read that with a 4 or 5 stage you don't need a compressor to pressurize a pot. but your picture seems to be the way to go. Do you like that setup that you are using?

Depends on the fitting on the pot. You can pressurize the pot with a turbine.

Yes, it served me well for many years.

To answer your other question, Yes. All the compressor is doing is push fluid to the gun, turbine is supplying atomizing air.
