RG130E dust extraction issue solved
« on: March 28, 2019, 12:56 AM »
Thanks to LooseSox I picked up a 36mm hose for the RG130. I recently purchased it as well as a CT26 for paint stripping (yellow disc) but the 27mm hose supplied couldn't keep up. Happy to report the 36mm hose is the one and Festool dust extraction proficiency is back to normal. Hmm, wonder if it would be more sucky on the RO150 which struggles with dust collection when you're over the edge?

Define over the edge?? [blink]
With my Rotex 150, I’ve melted the stock pad during admittedly too hard of usage and the 27mm hose kept up with me. If the pad is off a work piece , with a portion of it spinning in the air, I have seen a loss of DC collection but that is normal.
