Does the referenced adapter fit inside the 36 mm coupling? (The picture looks too small to fit over the 36 mm coupling.) I assume the other end just fits over the dust ports on tools made for the 27 mm  hose.

Hi. I like to 36mm hose as well. I made a whip about 18 inches to use with sanders ect, but prefer the 36 on my mft for dust collection.
I just ordered a couple of these, have not rec'd them yet but sounds like it will solve your issues.
have a look....

I bought one of those last year and it has worked quite well as I have my 36mm hose mounted on a boom arm. Before that I used the 18" whip. That, I didn't care for as it would leave the Plug it cord ALWAYS 18" too long or too short.

Yes, one end of that adapter fits inside the D36 tool end connector  (not sure if it fits the AC hose) and the other end is  the same as a regular D27 connector. It fits on the tools with a mating D27 sized port. I have that adapter it fits wells and works well. I think the biggest drawback will be  having the size, weight and lower flexibility of the D36 hose when using a smaller finish sander. But the adapter is certainly a useful item to have.

Thanks Seth.  Having only used the sander with the 36 mm hose only for one sanding I agree it's a little in flexible. However, in my workshop I have the boom arm installed and mainly use the sander there. I guess if the static isn't a problem with 27 mm non anti static hose I have then I could just switch hoses and not use the boom arm for sanding but the arm does help keep the hose and cord out of the way. I do appreciate the solutuons to my problem as it gives me options. I did get 27 mm hose I have over the dust port. I just didn't want to force it as much as it needed. So that option is also available even though it is not an anti-static hose.

That D27 will get easier to connect over time as the rubber will soften a bit with use. I would say that the static isn't a problem if you are not getting zapped by the hose.  Just depends on your ZTL (Zap Tolerance Level).  ;D

Thanks to everyone who responded, especially Seth. I got the after market adapter and it works heat from the 36 mm hose to any connection which handles a 27 mm hose end. Plus I was able to use the 27 mm non-antistatic hose with the ETS125 sander also. Now I have 2 options. I have left the adapter on the 36 mm hose which is on my CT48 with the boom arm and it all works great. Meant to thank sooner but just slipped my mind.

This is nothing short of outrageous. I bought am ETS125 sander and I would like to buy the hose that fits on it.  Why is that so complicated?  All these posts about adapters and people making inserts is absolutely ridiculous.  I'm tempted NOT to buy another Festool product until this question is answered in a simple way.  If there is no Festool hose that fits on the ETS125, be honest, and say so.

Let's admit it. If Festool could envision all user needs, we wouldn't have third-party companies in existence like TSO, Fastcap, Seneca, etc. Not making available an adapter so one can use the 36 with other sanders is lost sales. However, it shouldn't be too difficult to fabricate some step-down hose to solve the problem. I use the 36mm hose for my Kapex, DF and sander.

Just so you know . . . This is a 6-year old post/question from when I bought my first couple of Festools. As for the hose and fitting on the sander, at the time I was using the 36mm hose for my Festool sanders and saws. However, I found that that really isn't necessary with sanders and, in fact, makes it more difficult to use the ETS125 because the 36mm hose is heavier and tends to tip the sander, thus making it grab the surface. The 27 mm hose is what is used on most tools and fits perfectly on the ETS125, all other sanders, Dominos, TS55 and TS75 saws (although they will also work with the 36mm hose without an adapter), and the routers. So, this really isn't a problem. There is nothing better than dust collection on Festool tools, especially with Festool vacs. The only tools for which the 36mm hose is probably a must is the TS75 (although it will also work OK with the 27mm), the Kapex (not my experience just feedback on the FOG). It might help on the routers, but certainly isn't necessary. Anyway, it seems as if more is being made of my very old question than is intended.

This is not complicated. Just attach the standard hose from a Festool vac to the tool. Everything works well.
I use the 36 mm hose with the Kapex, all others get the 27 mm treatment. That includes track saws, routers and planers.

Let’s just keep it simple.

My original question/post was over 6 years ago, before I really had any experience with Festool dust collection and I felt that, if I used the 36mm hose, it would get even more of the dust. Oviously that isn't true. Blame my inexperience with the tools for the original post. Sometimes it's hard to see your own posts from that long ago based on Festool novice questions you had. The 27 mm hose collects all the possible dust on almost everything except maybe the TS75 and the Kapex.

There is nothing outrageous or complicated about it at all.

All the Festool hoses that are D27 or D27/32 will fit the ETS125. No adapter needed.  The D27 or D27/32 hoses also fit  all  the Festool tools. The D27 or D27/32 hoses are also the hoses that are supplied with Festool vacuums.

The D36 hose that the OP posted about is a larger size hose and  can  be used with some Festool tools for improved DC. It is not what would be considered the standard hose size. So in order to use the D36 hose with some tools an adapter would be needed.

The D27 Hose is 27mm diameter for it's entire length. The D27/32 hose is 27mm diameter at the tool end and tapers to 32mm at the vac end. This is a newer hose and provides more airflow / suction while still maintaining the  standard  D27 tool end connection.

All of the hoses D27, D36, D50, D27/32 have the same size connecting fitting at the vac end. So they can all be connected directly to the Festool vacs.

The hose that is for the CT36AC is a special one designed for use with that vac and the Planex.

If you buy a D27 or D27/32 Hose it will fit the ETS125.
