How to Dismantle Festool 36mm hose connector?
« on: February 22, 2021, 11:21 AM »
After I remove the larger connecting piece on the hose, there is another plastic part that I can't sort out how to remove.  It is the part on the inside of the connector piece on the very end.  Does it screw off or do you just use brute force to pull it off, or what?  Thanks

You screw it off. Shouldn't be too hard.

I believe it is a left hand thread

Ah Yes, it is reverse threaded, comes off easy when turned the right way, thanks...
