Bosch Surfacing Kit w/ 16 ft Hose
« on: April 10, 2020, 03:07 PM »
Home Depot has the Bosch GXA4-01L on sale for $53.10. This kit includes a 16 foot 35mm anti-static hose (VH1635A)!

Thanks! That hose can be dedicated to the MFT table/cart. Appreciate it.

@KelleyCrafts, that’s the same thought I had.  May need to trade out the hose ends to fit a CT and Festool dust ports.

Max, I think the Vacuum end fits the CT. You’ll have to get the tool end and swap it out.

Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

@TheTechRunner, thanks for the tip on the Bosch kit from Home Depot.  It arrived today.  Beautiful hose, and as @KelleyCrafts said, the end fits into my CT (a midi).  Even better, the tool end fits on my RO90.  It’s a tight fit but works.  Haven’t tried it on my other Festools. 

The kit also came with a big L-boxx (I didn’t know Sortimo makes them), 5 vac bags, and a HEPA filter.  Amazing for just over 50 bucks, especially with the equivalent hose going for $90 on Amazon.

I'm glad I could help! Mine arrived too (I bought two...). I was looking for some ends at my local store tonight and couldn't find any. I'd like to use one to keep hooked up to my Kapex.

I may try to offload the filter/bags/box on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. I looked up shipping to post it on here but it was outrageous. Around $75 to ship the box!

Received mine too. It'll be dedicated to the MFT, decent little hose. I did switch the tool end so it would take the bigger tool connector then I just use an adapter for the smaller tools in that end.

I'll use the box, I have some Kreg stuff I don't use all that often that doesn't really have an all in one home so I'll dedicate that box to it.

The filter bags and filter might be worth something?

What exactly is this kit used for?  It’s not a vacuum, but is it a pre separator or something?  Hose looks good and I need one for a diy boom arm, but I can get a similar hose for $30 on amazon, so why spring for this?  Curious. Thx

I saw this and wondered why for a few days too long too. Came to my senses too late and it's out of stock now. Thanks for the heads up even so!
