There's a video on this post here that is on the Bosch NA forum that has a lot of useful info on it especially if you already have Festool rails.
Ajax - congrat's on bathroom crown, you're the family hero now !    I've also been following Katz instructions (on youtube).  I've been using a 12V Bosch jigsaw and a Collins coping foot.  Like RKA, I get fairly close with the saw, then I use sandpaper molded to a trim scrap (Katz) to sort of flush sand the finish.  I agree a couple extra minutes seems to make the fit much better.
I'm a beginner at crown;  it's satisfying when it turns out.  good luck ....

Hello HdV -  thank you for the info, much appreciated.  My current plan (which may change) is to use 5 inch hose where I can, use a wye connector and run a short 50mm hose up to the blade guard.   I am going down the same road, and researching out Fernco couplings, Oneida and NordFab adapters, home made adapters, etc to get the Hammer and the Oneida connected.

Rob Z -  yes I hear you there, my shop is about 420 sq-ft.   I am moving things around in my primitive SketchUp garage shop model, to get everything to fit.

 [big grin] Hans,I can relate to the walking on water...there’s just about 3-4 months I find it impossible for some reason.   [big grin]. My wife keeps me grounded though!

Y’all have a great Fathers Day Weekend!

I use Fein adapters  (Fein Step Adapter - 921072K13) to connect to my oval ported Festoys.  Unfortunately they are now discontinued, the only place I could find them was, these are a flexible rubber...the new ones are a more rigid plastic and not as flexible.

I'll be watching this thread with interest.
With everyone on this thread raising our customer’s expectations with these positive comments I feel obligated to share with you what my mother-in-law** said to my wife when she was enthusing over me when we were dating ”Linda, remember he puts his pants on one leg at a time”  and more recently: I have not walked on water since leaving Minnesota in February 😊

PS: ** my mother law (rest her soul) became known in our family as the “President of the Hans Fan Club” – I was so blessed to have her all these years,
I have the same sander.  There's nowt available comercially as far as I'm aware, but if your hose ends are easily removed or even just swivelling, then something could perhaps be jury-rigged with several appropriately cut to length & overlapped lengths of shrink-wrap insulation & a heat gun.  Maybe wrap the exposed ends of the sander & power cable with protective layers of tin foil during the process to avoid damage.

I use older style Nilfisk/Wap/Alto & Kraenzle/Festo Vacs myself, which are Festo hose compatible.

My deck is 35 years old and the top railing and supporting structure need replacing. What kind of joinery would be the best/strongest?  We have snow and ice and very warm summers so it sees extreme temps.  I was thinking of using a dovetail joint but not sure if that would be good for wood movement.
