Title: VAC SYS coupling/connector and hose
Post by: drdabrown on September 14, 2019, 08:43 AM
I bought a Festool VAC pump from the recon site and to use for my vacuum chuck on the lathe, but can't find a coupling or connector that fits onto the vac output connector on the pump. Where can I get one of these and are they available with a vac line attached?
I've looked on ekat, but don't know enough about the VAC SYS to know if it is shown there in the drawings.
Thank you

I've purchased the Festool vacuum extension hose & connector 495293 for use with a vacuum chuck.

Thank you Richard/RMW. That's exactly what I was looking for. I already have the vacuum hose to the vacuum chuck. All I needed was the coupling. I order from McMaster/Carr all the time. Didn't think of checking their site.
Perfect.
Thanks
