Festool How To... / Re: Ct36AC Made more useful?
« Last post by Jiggy Joiner on Today at 02:54 AM »
So... anyone got any idea how I can connect to plane X hoses

There’s a few ways, you can buy or make up after market fittings, some plastic plumbing fittings can be useful.
Or this is another way:



Or:



Personally I wouldn’t fancy really long hoses, there will be suction loss so I prefer shorter hoses, I have a short hose for my Kapex and there’s a noticeable improvement over the standard length.
Dry wall dust might not be too much of an issue though with a longer hose but, I’d only lengthen the hose if I really had too. Better to move the extractor on a shorter hose (in my opinion).

Festool Tools & Accessories / Shaping a chair seat with a RAS
« Last post by AndrewG on Yesterday at 09:51 PM »
I think I’ve posted this in one of the other threads, but I used my RAS 115 to sculpt most of this rocker. I started with the holey galahad wheels, but there was no way of controlling the dust so I got the RAS.

It will be followed up with rasps, and RO90 and RO150.

There is a learning curve on how to best maximise dust extraction with turning the handle, and although not perfect it’s still not bad. Highly recommend it.

I've made quite a few mitered frames for my wife's native Indian horse blankets and other art.  These a shadow box style with 2.5" - 4.5" raised sides with the art mounted and a shadow line inset.  All were mitered, dominoed stained black and assembled.  I suspect that they could fall off the wall and still remain as solid as the day assembled.

Minor annoyance when you buy the two vac units and want two sets of heads, you need to buy an additional round head or get your seller to swap out the large oval for a round on the second vac unit.
I bought one set of extra heads, but am hesitant on getting a second set of extras because it won't line up with the second unit quite right.  Anyone know of a seller that does that swap to make it line up right?

What are the skinnier Vac-Sys heads used for? I see the kit comes with round and oval heads, but also see there are at least two other heads. Are these for narrower items?

Exactly. Small and narrow stock. use this all the time on rail and stile and frame stock.
