A step down nozzle that allows you to use 27mm tools with a 36mm hose.

The part works great as an adapter.  Thanks for offering us (thoughts of us in the 50 states) the part.

Not there is a UK Festool dealer that is modifying the part and selling them.

If anyone is interested I have ordered this one and it works great.  Also, mine is Anti-Static.  I learned about it here on the fog.

Wood Pulp,

Just so I'm clear it attaches to the 36 by sliding "into" the 36?   

I have the Planex and that 36 mm hose has a set of protrusions outside of the 36 connector that lets the forked latch lock the Planex to the Hose.

If this does slide in the opening of the 36 then this would be perfect when you want to switch to a delta head sander to get the corners that the Planex 225mm head can't reach.

Cheers,
Steve

I'm sure there would be times this adapter is useful, but after using most of the different tools with both hoses, I've found that when the 36mm hose is too bulky at the tool end, a 27mm whip hose of 18 - 24 inches connected into the 36mm hose works better.  [2cents]

Steve,

You are correct, it does slip into the tool end of the 36mm hose..  I took as few pics and will try and get them posted this weekend. 

Ken,

I agree.  Although it is nice to have I find that I reach for my "27mm whip" 95% of the time, at least when sanding is involved.

Wood Pulp,

Thanks for the confirmation on how that works.

Ken and Wood Pulp,

The CT 36AC hose is very different than the "normal" CT AS. The Black Planex hose is very very flexible and the outsides is softer, so the hoses inside surface can be Auto Cleaned and the outside won't scratch the wall. I find that the Black hose lets you get into places, such as a refrigerator nook and you are not fighting the hose to move around in it. the 36mm AC (AS) if much more flexible than a 27 AS hose.  For sanding and working around finished things while remodeling the Black AC (and it is AS) is very handy.

Cheers,
Steve
